# DAWFileKit

A Swift library for reading and writing common import/export file formats between popular DAW and video editing applications with the ability to convert between formats.

Format Read Write
Cubase: Track Archive XML yes† yes†
Pro Tools: Session Info text file yes n/a
Standard MIDI File planned yes
Logic Pro X‡ future? future?
Final Cut Pro XML (FCPXML) yes future?
Adobe Premiere XML future? future?

† Full read/write support for Cubase Track Archive XML files is implemented for tracks with absolute timebase, as well as tracks with musical timebase where the tempo track uses only 'Jump' tempo events and there are no 'Ramp' tempo events

‡ Research is needed for Logic Pro X to determine what file formats are common and the viability of their implementation

# OpenTimelineIO

OpenTimelineIO is an interchange format and API for editorial cut information. OTIO contains information about the order and length of cuts and references to external media. It is not however, a container format for media.

For integration with applications, the core OTIO library is implemented in C++ and provides an in-memory data model, as well as library functions for interpreting, manipulating, and serializing that data model. Within the core is a dependency-less library for dealing strictly with time, opentime.

The project also supports an official python binding, which is intended to be an idiomatic and ergonomic binding for python developers. The python binding includes a plugin system which supports a number of different types of plugins, most notably adapters, which can be used to read and write legacy formats into the OTIO data model.
