One of the most powerful features in EditReady is the ability to view and edit the metadata contained in your files. You can access metadata for a clip by selecting the clip and then choosing
Edit Metadatafrom the
Clipmenu, or by pressing
Command-2on your keyboard.
Metadata may include camera settings like F-Stop, Iris, and Shutter, as well as items like Location (if your camera has GPS), media serial numbers, or even diagnostic data.
In some cases, there may be multiple entries for a single category of metadata. For example, your camera may store a Creation date in a variety of places throughout the file. If the values within the key don't match, EditReady will display
Conflicting Valuesand provide a disclosure triangle to reveal the individual entries. If you'd like to unify all of these entries with a single value, click the checkbox to the right of the value you'd like to preserve. Any other value will be replaced.
If your camera includes GPS data in the metadata, those fields will have a
Pin📍icon, allowing you to view the clip location on a map.

Some metadata is intended only for use by the camera manufacturer during troubleshooting. So it may appear as simply a string of numbers or letters within EditReady.
To edit an entry, simply double click and begin typing. Depending on the field, EditReady may enforce requirements on the type of information you can enter (for example, date fields may only contain a valid date).
To add a new entry click the
add metadataicon in the upper-right corner of the
Metadatawindow. You'll be able to select from a variety of categories and metadata keys. If you'd like to customize this selection, see the Advanced Features section. Some metadata keys will restrict the types of data you can enter (for example, timecode entries must be valid timecode values).
Keys that already exist in your file will be disabled from the
Adding Metadata Values
To remove a metadata entry, click
➖to the right of the entry.
EditReady allows you to set metadata across a set of files with a single operation. From the
Metadatamenu, select either
Set Metadata for Allor
Set Metadata For Flagged. Select a category and metadata key, and then enter a value. This value will be set across all of the target files, and will replace any existing values for that key.
