You'll need to use third-party program call DV Date.
If you have imported the file into Premiere Elements 11, then a copy of it should be in the Elements Organizer that comes with Premiere Elements 11.
So, give the following a try to see if it works for you.
1. Click on Organizer at the bottom left of the Premiere Elements 11 workspace.
2. When the Elements Organizer opens, look for your file there, right click it, and select Show File Info.
3. Check out Metadata information. This has worked for me for find video date and time most of the time.
Please let us know the outcome.
I already tried this. DV Date will not accept MTS files which is the file my Panasonic TM-700 creates. It only acceptes AVI files.
The organizer only shows the date of the file, not the actual shooting date.
The software that comes with your camera, called HD Writer, will give you the shooting date.
Yes, but only if I use HD Writer to import files. I am not using this SW. It is also many stepsto use if I have to switch between applications. I find it to be a core function in doing home videos to have a shooting date.
Next time I will use picasa from google to rename the files with a date right after I have imported the files. But it is just an annoying work around.
