Reduce sequences to a single layer, or minimum layers possible.
Import the XML from the editing software.
Make a trim:
File - Media Management - Timelines, choose Copy and folder for trim.
Please create a media managed folder with 25 / 50 frame handles on each clip instead of sending a full take of each clip so it doesn't take ages to download.
Choose "relink" to new files - start - trim is ready.
