XML Edit List

Like the Edit List, the XML edit list gen­er­ates a list of events in play order, but in an XML struc­ture. The XML edit list is gen­er­al­ly used for trans­fer­ring time­line infor­ma­tion from time­line to time­line. However, since it is com­mon file struc­ture, it can be used in hun­dreds of ways.

To export an XML edit list, open a Timeline with cod­ed data and choose File > Export > XML Edit list. The file will con­tain all the descrip­tions of the instances includ­ing: start and end times, row names and col­ors, label group­ings, labels, and instance notes. A file will look this in a sim­ple test editor.
