EDL as source fails at Engine 7.1

Hi, I'm trying both intro/outro and the EDL for multi source encoding. 

doing intro/outro is ok with same container, format, tracks etc...  

BUT you need to have RESIZE always on, if not I get an error ? Is this really so ?

But EDL ? 
I have two heads, one film, and two tails.. 
Into premiere I put then into a timeline, with no gap. Export an EDL. 
Dropping this edl intro source gives me this message at rendering. 

initialization failed (no importer found) 

lisence Engine 7.1, on mac 10.10.5

(and all files works independently) and also they all work with intro/outro

/regards Helge

  • Full error on EDL workflow (from console):

  • Test has been done from resolve as well. Both EDL's fails.

    Can you describe the file path and how networked if relevant? Please be as specific as possible.

    In other words, the EDL needs to pull in the source files and perhaps it's not finding them.

    Are you using CLI or XML-RPC?

    From the Episode Advanced User Guide.
    See Page 46

    • Edit Decision List (EDL) Conforming. Enables you to create and submit an Epi- sode EDL source which identifies a set of source files to be combined into a sin- gle output file. Each file in the EDL can be trimmed based on time-code or time.

    When using EDL’s as a source, your workflow must observe these constraints:

    • You can’t add intro/outro to encoders

    • Both video and audio tracks must be present

    • Encoder can not copy tracks

    • Encoders must not have streaming enabled. 

    Perhaps that's the issue.

    From the email I got from support I know understand that an EDL in episode terms is not an EDL from the NLE world where I come from :)


    So an episode EDL is a conforming list, generated from the command line with the episode tool... 


    It is NOT and EDL coming from an NLE and to be dropped into the File List in the source.

    A traditional EDL wouldn't have a path to source files.
    That's why I was wondering about Path to files. The EDL would need the path.
