More options for creating EDL's
While most people seem to be taking XML's for sending projects to resolve or whatever, I still would really love to see more EDL options in Premiere.
The reason being is that they are INCREDIBLY useful for creating documents for production. I've had to work on Avid for a project recently and the amount of options Avid gives you for EDL's was such a tremendous help and it's killing me that premiere doesn't have the same options, such as
1.) No limit on the number of audio and video tracks that can be exported
2.) being able to export frames as well as timecode. (This one in particular is useful in animation as animators tend to work in frames, so it lets them know which frames we are and aren't using.)
I cannot stress how useful this is and really hope that Adobe push to make this better. As an edit assist, this saves a LOT of time

I'll just add that while legacy EDLs are (largely) no longer used for their original design purpose, they are useful in that they are human readable.
However, per the suggestion above, a recognition of this shift in their use, along with some investigation of how they are used, would lead to some really useful format and configuration changes that would make them even more useful.

If you want to export your whole video you can do so with an overlay Timecode effect, correct ?
Would you like to export each video track separately ? What kind of use do you have of this ?
