“Another piece of the puzzle: I have tested, used, and consulted with Philip and Greg on this software. It works as advertised. If you're making a feature film this is a crucial part of the process. This company makes great, great tools for serious post-production workflow.”

And that’s where a Change List comes in. Because “Final” is never “Final” and “Locked” is regularly “Unlocked” again.
Change List X analyses two Final Cut Pro X Projects and produces a change list comparing the Primary Storylines of the two versions of the edit.
The report lists the changes that need to be made to the initial cut to match the new edits, step by step
The report can be created as a PDF, tab-separated text file, or both
Report times can be shown as either Timecode, Feet+Frames or Frame Count
Change List X can also create a change pull list (for new footage added to the timeline) and a change discard list (for footage that needs to be removed from the timeline)
