Vse To Nle

by Ad Morris's Add-ons in Addons


Overview

Built to expedite the animation to edit workflow for productions, this tool enables transfer of Blender VSE sequences to any NLE supporting the XML interchange format, in just a few clicks. Including Adobe Premiere, DaVinci Resolve and Final Cut Pro and others.

Export video, audio, scene strips, meta strips, text strips, color strips, image sequences and stills with no issue. Open up the possibility of adding motion graphics to your shots with a third-tool such as After Effects or Fusion via their native integrations with your NLE. All without compromising the structure of your edit.


How Does it Work?

In simple terms, the add-on generates an XML interchange file readable by NLEs like Adobe Premiere, DaVinci Resolve or Final Cut Pro that will allow you to transfer your edit to any of those applications. Video clips, audio and stills are linked seamlessly to their location on disk, without the need to render additional files or proxies. Whilst other strips types are rendered as Open GL previews in a folder alongside your .blend file, ready for you to replace with the final versions later in production. Strips can be rendered independently by type, or the XML interchange file can be exported alone for full flexibility.


Who is it For?

The VSE to NLE addon is a huge workflow accelerator for artists and editors working on video edits, storyboards, animatics and animation productions. Opening up a whole new workflow and pipeline previously not possible with Blender.

Build your edit in Blender and export to a professional grade NLE for finishing. Share your animatic with your editor, once you've got it locked in place. Sequence your animated storyboards in Blender with the tools you love like grease pencil, then share it as an editable sequence for collaborators using other tools. There's a whole new world of possibilities!
