Drastic Log Format

The Drastic LOG format uses the same basic layout as a LOG/~ALG/~ALE. This page describes the file format used for the Drastic log format.

The main differences are the 'Type:' header and the file name in the comment. The comment is broken up into two sections: The initial comment after the ';' and a file name after a second ';'.


Here is an example LOG:

; ClipFileName must point to a valid media file.
