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

The library assists in parsing EDL files in CMX 3600 format. You can use it to generate capture lists, inspect needed video segments for the assembled program and display edit timelines. When used together with depix you could write your own "blind" conform utility in about 10 minutes, no joke.

Basic usage

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
