EdlMax24 is the most comprehensive Edit Decision List (Edl) management application available It provides trouble-free Edl format conversions, cleaning, on-line assembly optimizations, advanced Edl manipulation and editing, and frame-rate conversion.

Ease of use flows from a no-nonsense windowed interface. Menu organization is designed and labeled for intuitive use and readability. Carefully selected output defaults help assure the generation of trouble-free Edls.

EdlMax24 automatically detects the Edl format (CMX, GVG, and Sony) on input. The sophisticated input parser performs extensive processing on the incoming Edl, correcting inconsistencies for a reliable Edl load. With selectable output of CMX, GVG, Sony, to DOS and Windows disks, EdlMax24 eliminates the usual hassles of Edl management.

EdlMax24's frame-rate conversion accuracy has been shown to be error free, producing frame-accurate 24p EDLs from Avid Film Composer projects, and near-perfect 24p EDLs from other 30fps frame-based editing systems.

Only EdlMax can generate Edls for error-free import to Avid sequence, Quantel EditBox/Henry, and Screensound. By specially tailoring the list, EdlMax can assure loading to these advanced devices. When you need this, you need it bad.

Optimization is in a class by itself. Mix and match features like Pre-read, Interleaving, Sequencing, and Grouping for faster online assemblies. The unique Summary feature helps you evaluate the list by performing a "virtual" auto-conform of the list, and reporting Edl statistics and assembly time estimates. No other Edl tool gives you such organizational flexibility or provides you with this kind of information about your Edl.

Advanced Edl editing macros make dealing with typical Edl problems easy and allow sophisticated list manipulation and modification. EdlMax can fix it.
