    Any problems with match frame edits on track filler when making EDLs?

    Hi.

         I'm jumping onto a project by another editor.  There are a lot of edits to the track filler.  Can I export EDLs without any issues?  I don't want to delete the match frame edits because there are a lot of them that I don't want to do individually and am nervous about selecting the entrire timeline and removing them all in one swoop.

    No problem. Also, no need to worry if you simply choose "Remove MatchFrame Edits", it won't break anything. But if you leave them in, no EDL problems. EDL's get optimized.

    Thanks, Job.  I guess if there were any difference at all between two clips, even if it were a splice to the same footage, it wouldn't in fact show as a matchframe.  I guess any sort of applied effect, breaks the matchframe.  If there is no scenario possible where deleting all matchframes could accidentally damage the edit, then I will do this in future, just for housecleaning.

    FWIW, in the aggregate I find "remove matchframe edits" tends to solve more problems than it creates.
