  • Clip Metadata Fields to Text Source?

    Hey guys, I edit a lot of highlight videos and I’m wanting to display the names of people who submit clips on-screen thru an automated process. I’m hoping to insert their names into some field in the metadata of the file (outside of Adobe workflow, still figuring that out) and use that to display their names while their clips play.

    I’m editing in Premiere but there only seems to be the Clip Name effect which will show the filename, but I hoped maybe I can send the whole timeline to Ae when the edit is done and use expressions on a Text Source to grab the info? Unfortunately I’ve found nothing on accessing metadata thru expressions, only viewing/searching thru the metadata panel, to categorize or find clips. Closest I’ve found is Footage.sourceData to read json files..

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Hey Royce, I haven’t tried accessing it with expressions, but solely alone by the fact how straightforward-NOT it is to do this through extendscript scripting – its very unlikely to be possible. Only a guess, but from someone who tried working making the use of XMP.
