I wrote a small utility to convert EDL to MLT using edl-genius and node-mlt.
It generates MLT files like so 2012-03-17-Eating-Out_3.mlt (2.2 KB) that Shotcut could open. I couldn’t figure out how to make Shotcut add a timeline. Any ideas what am I missing?
I kinda figured out that to add clips to timeline I need something along the lines of the following
<tractor id="706ec64f-f2a3-4fe5-8eaa-f1ea42c4e1fb"> <track producer="075c7515-8a9f-44c3-9cc3-0b02d23f4f59"/> <property name="shotcut">1</property> </tractor>
However when I make my utility generate that, Shotcut is weirded out and I have to generate MLTs without tractor and add clips to timeline manually which is annoying. What exactly is required in MLT for Shotcut to add my cuts from EDL to a timeline?
