Marvin allows each user to customize certain default values and behaviors when importing and exporting data.
|frame rate||Select the frame rate that matches your Avid project settings so that Marvin can perform relevant timecode calculations. The options are 24, 25, 29.97 DF, 30 NDF, 59.94 DF, and 60 fps.|
|handles||EDLs do not include handle information, so select the number of frames Marvin should use as the default value. Choose from one of several common presets, or click Other... to set your own.
Additionally, check the auto-estimate source handles box to automatically calculate the source clip's handle timecode during the import process versus running the calculate handles action in the shots tool separately.
|EDL format||Choose the format of your exported EDL so that Marvin knows how to parse it. The options are CMX3600, File_16, File_32, and File_129.|
|marker name||EDLs and XMLs do not include the name value of markers, but you can specify a default one. If you need the correct names, use the matching markers action in the shots tool.
Additionally, check the ignore markers box to import every clip in an EDL/XML regardless of whether it has a marker on it.
|merge adjoining plates of a single shot||Check this box to automatically perform the merge multi-plates action in the shots tool during the import process versus running it separately.|
|exported file suffix||When exporting files, Marvin defaults to the name of the imported file for easy reference and grouping. However, to avoid accidentally overwriting the existing file, a customized suffix can be added.|
|export location||When exporting files, Marvin can either default to the same folder as the last imported file or to the folder of the last saved file.|
