Once you have the two XML files, one for the sequence, and one for the timecode, you should place them onto a USB stick. They must be in the ‘importexport’ folder within the gma2 folder. Once you have inserted the USB stick into the console (or onPC), you need to select the USB disk in the Backup window.

You now need to type some commands on the command line to import the files.

  • First you need to navigate to the sequence pool. Type the following pressing return after each line:

cd sequences
cd global

  • Now to import your sequence file, type:


NAME_OF_FILE is the name of the sequence XML file you wish to import.
SEQUENCE_NUMBER is the sequence number you wish to import the sequence to. Typically this would be the sequence number you specified when you ran the script to export the XML file.

The file should now be imported. You will see the results of the import posted in the command line window. You will probably want to assign the sequence to an executor.

  • To import the timecode XML file, you first need to back up the directory structure, so type:


  • Now type:

cd timecode

NAME_OF_FILE is the name of the timecode XML file you wish to import.
TIMECODE_NUMBER is the timecode number you wish to import the timecode list to.

You may need to ‘Change Executor/Fader’ in the ‘Track Functions’ window of the timecode list to the executor the sequence is assigned to.
