For my sound syncing tool I'd like to implement saving project to file which will be suitable for most modern non linear editors. I try to avoid looking into each proprietary format of major vendors, because some of them are closed binaries.
Surprisingly there is only Apple provides clear description of its XML-project format.
So far I know about these formats:
- Advanced Authoring Format (AAF)
- Open Media Framework Interchange (OMFI/OMF)
- Edit decision list (EDL) - plaintext
Are there any other common XML or plain-text based project formats to transfer between different software applications?
