    Check halfway through the review...
    It might be only available in the Mac version, I couldn't find any option in the Windows version.

    Ah!
    Sad news then...

    On the help page for the standalone version there is a specific chapter on this. As you wrote only in the Mac version I guess:

    http://www.filmconvert.com/help/1


    Tab 1: XML / EDL import

    You can use this feature to load a finished cut into FilmConvert, and render only the clips that were used. This saves time over rendering all footage prior to editing.

    Please note, your complete timeline is not represented in Film Convert. This feature simply allows you to load the clips that are present in your timeline to simplify selecting the necessary clips.

    The basic workflow is:

    Export an EDL or XML from your editing software
    Import the EDL / XML into FilmConvert
    Color and render your footage
    Save a new version of your project in your editor
    Re-connect the rendered footage in the editor
    You can also render to DPX or TIFF and use the EDL / XML to create the timeline in external grading software. We won't cover that workflow here, but most of the same concepts apply.

      I never tried this EDL/XML export and import
      Maybe it the same settings that Grass Valley recommends for a round trip to Da Vinci or After Effects. There is a PDF document giving instructions, I tried it with After Effects & Premiere but I just directly use Film Convert in Premier Pro CC & then export GV Lossless back into Edius for editing. Decent plug-in support is sadly lacking in Edius...

        Hi Phil,
        Could you elaborate a bit on your workflow?

        Do you grade the whole clips in Premiere/FC and then export them to Edius in GV lossless for editing?
        Basically do you use Premiere as host for Film Convert?

        Thanks

          Hi John yes that's basically what I do either lossless or GV HQ. It requires large drives for the intermediaries but makes cutting nice in Edius. I'm actually experimenting editing natively in Premiere Pro as I'm disappointed with the inadequate plug-in support in Edius (the OFX plug-in system is useless) & having to shuffle back & forth between Edius to Premiere & back to Edius. I want to use Edius 100% but I think Edius is basically a cutter's NLE, i.e TV stations, news editors, etc. For film makers gravitate towards Premiere, Avid & Final Cut Pro. I've been using Edius since V1, I know how awesome this program is but it's missing a few features in my book...
          End of rant.
          Yes mate, it works with exporting into a lossless/HQ file for easy editing in Edius...

          Regards Phil C.

              Because Edius is a niche product. A good product but a niche product.

                  2.05 and 2.07 will work in RT in 8 bit. You can do 10bit RT if you choose 50% resolution at the bottom of the OFX bridge.

                            Mastering Film Convert in Edius

                            Actually I have been using Film Convert in Edius & it's been fine. Since Edius has had the updated to the Primary Colour Corrector in combination with Film Convert I've been getting some good results. Oh and don't forget to use the vector scope! ;)
