CMX 3600 Edit Decision List Parser

Project description

pycmx

Python CMX3600 Edit Decision List Parser

The pycmx package provides a basic interface for parsing a CMX3600 EDL.

Features

  • The major variations of the CMX3600, the standard, "File32" and "File128" formats are automatically detected and properly read.
  • Remark or comment fields with common recognized forms are read and available to the client, including clip name and source file data.

Usage

import pycmx
pycmx.parse_cmx3600("INS4_R1_010417.edl") 
print(events[5:8])
>>> [CmxEvent(title='INS4_R1_010417', number='000006', 
       clip_name='V1A-6A', source_name='A192C008_160909_R1BY', 
       channels=CmxChannelMap(v=True,a1=False,a2=False,a3=False,a4=False), 
       source_start='19:26:38:13', source_finish='19:27:12:03', 
       record_start='01:00:57:15', record_finish='01:01:31:05', 
       fcm_drop=False), 
     CmxEvent(title='INS4_R1_010417', number='000007', 
        clip_name='1-4A', source_name='A188C004_160908_R1BY', 
        channels=CmxChannelMap(v=True,a1=False,a2=False,a3=False,a4=False), 
        source_start='19:29:48:01', source_finish='19:30:01:00', 
        record_start='01:01:31:05', record_finish='01:01:44:04', 
        fcm_drop=False), 
     CmxEvent(title='INS4_R1_010417', number='000008', 
        clip_name='2G-3', source_name='A056C007_160819_R1BY', 
        channels=CmxChannelMap(v=True,a1=False,a2=False,a3=False,a4=False), 
        source_start='19:56:27:14', source_finish='19:56:41:00', 
        record_start='01:01:44:04', record_finish='01:01:57:14', 
        fcm_drop=False)]

Known Issues/Roadmap

To be addressed:

  • Does not decode transitions.
  • Does not decode "M2" speed changes.
  • Does not decode repair notes, audio notes or other Avid-specific notes.

May not be addressed:

  • Does not parse source list at end of EDL.

Probably beyond the scope of this module:

  • Does not parse timecode entries

Should I Use This?

At this time, this is (at best) alpha software and the interface will be changing often. It may be fun to experiment with but it is not suitable at this time for production code.

Contributions are welcome and will make this module production-ready all the faster! Please reach out or file a ticket!
