A python EDL (Edit Decision List) parsing library, based on the ruby EDL library by Julik Tarkhanov http://guerilla-di.org/edl/. Still a work in progress so collaboration welcome.
Uses pytimecode.py to handle the Timecode mathematics and should run on Python 2.7+
from edl import Parser parser=Parser('23.98') with open('file.edl') as f: edl=parser.parse(f) for event in edl.events: print "Event Number:"+str(event.num) print "Source file:"+str(event.source_file) print "Clip Name:"+str(event.clip_name)
Accepted framerate values ['60', '59.94', '50', '30', '29.97', '25', '24', '23.98'] whole number frame rates are more tested than others, but the accuracy relies heavily on accuracy of the pytimecode library.
Documentation for pytimecode can be found here.
