Custom XML Cutlist Inside Project File

Hi.

I am trying to figure a way to edit the XML project file so that VRD will open with all scenes pre selected based on times that are generated from a vMix recording file. I can't get it to work. It must be because of the "byte" references.

This is what I am using. What do I need to add to let VRD create the scenes? And if the byte tags are necessary, how are they generated and how can I use the millisecond values to create?

<CutList><cut Sequence="1"><CutTimeStart>150000000</CutTimeStart><CutTimeEnd>230000000</CutTimeEnd></cut>
<cut Sequence="2"><CutTimeStart>1500000000</CutTimeStart><CutTimeEnd>1580000000</CutTimeEnd></cut>
<cut Sequence="3"><CutTimeStart>3520000000</CutTimeStart><CutTimeEnd>3600000000</CutTimeEnd></cut>
<cut Sequence="4"><CutTimeStart>16720000000</CutTimeStart><CutTimeEnd>16800000000</CutTimeEnd></cut></cutlist>

The byte is not required. But the timecode for VideoReDo is in PTS 90kHz ticks, which may not be what vMix uses.

Thanks -- so after some messing around --- I came up with a great solution -

On this spreadsheet in tab vmixtimes, the highlight times can be pasted into the first column which is then copied to the first tab. It then converts to PTS, and creates a 9 second scene (I use these for highlight in basketball) and spits out the cut list.
