EDL Converter


Open, view, and convert EDL files into CSV files. Get a summary of the contents of your EDLs. Easily copy and paste any segment in your EDL by hovering over it. Running entirely in your browser, EDL Converter protects your privacy by not uploading any data.

Currently in its beta phase, EDL Converter is an innovative tool transforming how you interact with edit decision list (EDL) files. As its features and functionality refinement continue, your feedback is invaluable. As part of our commitment to continuous improvement, future versions of EDL Converter will provide enhanced editing, checking, and fixing capabilities, making it a comprehensive solution for all your EDL-related needs. Once the EDL Converter transitions from its beta phase into production, it will shift to a paid service. Until then, users can use it free of charge.

Using EDL Converter begins by selecting the appropriate framerate for your EDL file. Ensuring the selected framerate and the EDL file contents align is crucial. Opening your EDL file initiates viewing the contents of your EDL, opening the door to an insightful exploration of your data. Upon opening your EDL file, the Converter springs into action, presenting you with two tables. The first is a summary table of all reels, providing a concise overview. The second is a detailed table of each EDL event, allowing a deep dive into individual elements.

The tool's copy-and-paste functionality is designed for both precision and flexibility. To copy individual fields, hover over the desired field and click. For broader scope, you can copy an entire column or row with a click on the column title or index cell of the "Row" or "Num" columns. And to mirror the entire table, click the column title of the index column ("Row" or "Num"). In addition to its viewing and copying capabilities, EDL Converter also serves as a conversion tool. With a click of the "Generate CSV file" button, you can consolidate both tables into a single CSV file for easy data manipulation and analysis. And if you wish to start over or clear out your workspace, the "Clear" button is there to wipe all data, providing a clean slate for your following EDL file.

A key emphasis of EDL Converter is its ability to open, view, and convert EDL files easily. It's designed to streamline your workflow, reduce manual effort, and ensure a reliable and efficient EDL management process. These features and its emphasis on data privacy assurance make EDL Converter a go-to tool for a seamless and secure EDL handling experience. Remember, your feedback is very much appreciated on this beta version, as it plays a crucial role in shaping the future of EDL Converter.
