Work with EDL files from Ruby en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edit_decision_list

The library assists in parsing [EDL files](en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edit_decision_list) in CMX 3600 format. You can use it to generate capture lists, inspect needed video segments for the assembled program and display edit timelines. Together with the depix you could write your own “blind” conform utility in about 10 minutes, no joke.

SYNOPSIS:

require 'rubygems'
require 'edl'

list = EDL::Parser.new(fps=25).parse(File.open('OFFLINE.EDL'))
list.events.each do | evt |
  evt.clip_name #=> Boat_Trip_Take1
  evt.capture_from_tc #=> 01:20:22:10
  evt.capture_to_tc #=> 01:20:26:15, accounts for outgoing transition AND M2 timewarps
end
