Sequence EDL import
Closed, InvalidPublic

Description

System Information
OSX 10.9.5

When importing an EDL file, only the reel name (tape name I guess) is recognized through the parser. IMHO, the interesting thing is the "clip name".
Example :

TITLE: Project
FCM: NON-DROP FRAME

001    **001B** V     C        00:00:00:00 00:00:01:13 00:00:00:00 00:00:01:13  
* FROM CLIP NAME:  **OH_A02a_01.mov**
REEL 001B IS CLIP  OH_A02a_01.mov

002    **001B** V     C        00:00:00:00 00:00:06:09 00:00:01:13 00:00:07:22  
* FROM CLIP NAME:  **OH_A02a_02.mov**
REEL 001B IS CLIP  OH_A02a_02.mov

003    **001B** V     C        00:00:00:00 00:00:00:16 00:00:07:22 00:00:08:13  
* FROM CLIP NAME:  **OH_A02a_03.mov**
REEL 001B IS CLIP  OH_A02a_03.mov

In this case, a unique reel (001B) is parsed and not the clip name.

: a little patch to correct this (not clean in my opinion but it works)
