EdiLoad v4 - Supports AAF and XML Files

EdiLoad v4 has been released with a swag of timesaving new features. Now 64-bit and compatible with macOS Catalina, the main update for EdiLoad has been to provide the option to import AAF and FCP7 XML files (XMLs designed for Final Cut Pro 7 and now exported by Adobe’s Premiere Pro). These files can be imported into the main window, when you are exporting conform reference tracks for example, or they can be imported into the compare window when comparing edit lists for picture changes.

I wish to thank all EdiLoad users and beta testers who have been using pre-release versions of EdiLoad during the year and provided valuable feedback.

Here’s a brief and in-depth video demonstrating some of the new features:
