I’m trying to import an EDL for a clip pull. I imported the clips, then the EDL. So now I have a project that contains media files (Sony F55 RAW) and unlinked clips from the EDL. I select the EDL clips and right-click “Traceback”. The Traceback window opened and I traced the clips to the F55 media files. I unchecked all options under “Modify Clips in Bin with selected Metadata” (Color, Audio, Slate, In/Out).
So now the EDL clips are linked to media files. The clips kept the same In/out points from the EDL. However, I’m experiencing two bugs:
I don’t see the “Sony RAW” tab in the Color section. I can’t tell if these clips are being decoded in the correct color space.
All clips being traced back now have an aspect ratio of .9375 (not 1.0) so everything is slightly squeezed. Before tracing and relinking, the aspect ratio was at 1.0. I know this is an easy fix in Cortex, but is a potential problem waiting to happen.
I think both of these issues are due to the “placeholder” clip that gets created when importing an EDL. This placeholder was not identified as a Sony RAW clip when the EDL was imported, so the Sony RAW tab didn’t show up. Once the media was linked to this EDL clip, the placeholder was not updated with the new clip attributes. Also, the aspect ratio should stay at 1.0 regardless of the relinked media resolution (ie placeholder at 1920x1080 vs linked clip at 4096x2160).
