    Can't create EDL that I can relink back to

    Hi,

        I have always had troubles relinking in Avid.

          In this case, I edited in a 2K timeline, using UHD DNxHR LB proxies.  After my cut was done, I deleted all tracks but one video track, deleted all effects from the clips, went to the list tool and tried making CMX_3600 and File_32 EDLs.  However, when I would bring the EDLs back into Avid, I could simply not relink to any of the footage.  I don't understand this.  There is information in the tape column, which is usually the culprit for Avid's relinking issues.  I tried every combination of options I could think of, but just couldn't link back.  How do I relink?

    Got it working.  I think I had handles set for the EDL and figured out you can't conform the EDL if you have handles set in the EDL "List Options" tab.  I don't have a huge amount of experience outputting old fashioned EDLs.

    Depends on your definition of conform. It it is being used as a pull list conform, then it should. Once exported, the EDL is an EDL, no indication that it handles or not although a comment as to handle number as comment be added was requested during beta.

    Avid actually says something like "this EDL can not be conformed with handles" when you go to make an EDL with handles. When I made the EDL with the default 50 frame handles, I couldn't relink any footage to it at all.  When I set the handles to 0, I was able to relink footage to the EDL.
