Custom Cuts - save as XML

Jan 7, 2015 at 7:44 PM
Custom Cuts are exactly what I was needing to help me with some of my files. Thanks so much!! Glad I donated.

Is there anyway that on the next release you could include an option to save as XML commercial skip file? I would like to be able to use these custom cuts along with the DTBadd-in for MCE

If you can share the format/specfications of the XML we can look into it.

It would be the same format as the XML file that COMSKIP produces if you use the option "output_dvrmstb=1" ; enable XML output for DVRMS Toolbox, in the CONFIG file.
Thank you for your consideration of the matter.

There may already be a simple way for me to convert the edl that I save from Custom Cuts to the required XML, but I have yet to find the solution.

I'm sorry but that doesn't help. We need the format or specs to be able to support it.

Understood....let me work on that.
Thanks

Does an example of the format help? See below...

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<root>
<commercial start="36.469766666666665" end="147.147" />
<commercial start="618.9183" end="769.5688" />
<commercial start="1042.1077333333333" end="1242.6414" />
<commercial start="1688.2532333333334" end="1830.9958333333334" />

Perfect, that helps, check out the new 2.4.2 BETA and see if it works for you.

WOW!!...I am very excited to give it a try. Unfortunately I will not be able to test it until this weekend.

If all tech support was this direct and quick the PC world would be a completely different experience. Thank you and I will reply with the results ASAP.
