    Can I select handles in EDL Manager?

    I'm editing a short that was shot on 16mm and then transfered to HD. The idea was to never go back to film. After the edit, our director decided that our original transfer to HD was inadequate. Now they are going to re-tranfer the film to HD, but they want to retransfer only the shots that we used in the cut.

    In order to do this, my online facility asked for an EDL in "S" sort mode with 10 second handles for each event. I have not been able to figure out how to generate an EDL with these handles.

    The only option for handles I can see is in the dupe list, which I don't think helps me.

    Any ideas?

    No one on this wonderful site can help me with this? I'd appreciate even a "this can't be done" response. Thanks! =)

    Re: Can I select handles in EDL Manager?

    Possible workaround: I couldn't find a way to add handles with the EDL manager unless they are handles to a dupe list (which only helps with generating alist of dupes that no one really ever needs anymore). My online needed a list of events with handles so I ended up decomposing a copy of my sequence with handles and then printing the bin and exporting the bin as an ALE file and then opening up in Word and sending it them like that. I think this will satisfy them...we'll see.

    Getting a film list with handles would b easier using FilmScribe if you did a film project with proper logs. You might get more responses if you post this in the Film & 24p forum.

    Must think of something clever to go here...
