edit decision list (EDL) : Prior to editing a master recording or motion picture, the various takes are auditioned and a list of the desired ones is created, along with notes telling exactly where the cuts are to be made. The resulting document is the EDL. This consists of the list of SMPTE time code in feet/frames, including instructions for fades, dissolves, and other special effects--corresponding to all the segments that the editor of a videotape production has decided to use in the final cut. The EDL is usually computer-generated. See also playlist.

needle-drop Any single section of music, no matter how short, copied from a music library for use in a film or video soundtrack, or a commercial spot. The producer or client must pay the specified fee to the library or copyright owner for each needle-drop, even when the same section is used more than once in the production.
