Change List X

Because picture lock is never really locked...

Finally, you reached picture lock and send the project off so the sound department can start work. Which they do. Except a week or two later, there’s just “a few minor changes when the director took another pass”…


And that’s where a Change List comes in. Because “Final” is never “Final” and “Locked” is regularly “Unlocked” again.


Change List X analyses two Final Cut Pro X Projects and produces a change list comparing the Primary Storylines of the two versions of the edit.


  • The report lists the changes that need to be made to the initial cut to match the new edits, step by step

  • The report can be created as a PDF, tab-separated text file,
    or both

  • Report times can be shown as either Timecode, Feet+Frames or Frame Count

  • Change List X can also create a change pull list (for new footage added to the timeline) and a change discard list (for footage that needs to be removed from the timeline)
