    How do you view a video clips metadata?

    zBernie

      In Premiere Elements 12, I don't see how to view a movies metadata.  Is there an option to do this in PrE 12?

          Right-click on a clip on your timeline and select Show Properties. This will show you the clip's basic metadata.

           

          For more specific metadata, you'll need to select the file in the Elements Organizer program and view the Info, Keyword Tags, Albums, etc.

            For some reason I don't have the Show Properties menu item.  I've tried right clicking on a .mov and .m4v I added to the timeline.  I confirmed these movies do in fact contain metadata.

             

            HOLD ON!

             

            I was writing my findings above when it occurred to me that I'm in Quick mode.  I changed to Expert mode, and the Show Properties menu item is there.

             

            -Thanks

              Does your answer above apply to PrE 10? 

              I've tried it and all it seems to do is display the properties of the clip rather than the metadata --which should include the such things as the record date for camcorder video.  Actually, I've been using Show Properties for years to display editing options and changes on a given clip, but have never seen/noticed metadata info (such as displayed by DVDate).

                No. Versions prior to version 11 used Show Properties for a different function.

                  Hope these observations help...

                   

                  Premiere Elements 10 Windows

                   

                  In Premiere Elements 10, if you right click the video on the Timeline and select Show Properties, what you get is the Properties Palette for that selected video. And, in the Properties Palette are the default panels for:

                  Motion

                  Opacity

                  Volume

                  Balance

                   

                  And, if you right click the video thumbnail in the Project Media and select Properties, you get a property readout for the video which includes:

                  File Path

                  Type

                  File Size

                  Frame Rate

                  Source Audio Format

                  Project Audio Format

                  Total Duration

                  Average Data Rate

                  Pixel Aspect Ratio

                   

                  Premiere Elements 11 or 12 Windows

                   

                  Premiere Elements 11 or 12, when you right click the video in the Expert view Timeline and select "Show Properties" OR right click the video thumbnail in Project Assets and select "Properties", now you get the Properties dialog

                  File Path

                  File Size

                  Frame Rate

                  Source Audio Format

                  Project Audio Format

                  Total Duration

                  Pixel Aspect Ratio

                   

                  In Premiere Elements 11 or 12 if you want the counterpart of the Premiere Elements 10 Properties Palette, after you select your Timeline video, you go the route Applied Effects Tab/Applied Effects Palette where the default panels are just Motion and Opacity.
