an edit decision list, or EDL, dictates every edit in a sequence. This list also contains an ordered list of reels for the EDL to refer to. The EDL is useful for bringing the lower quality offline edit to online in a higher quality.

While several older EDL formats–such as the CMX3600 format–are still in use, the industry as a whole is moving toward XML formatting of editorial information.
