I've been working across Ps Lr Pr and Ae to assemble time-lapse clips over the last few years. I haven't processed a clip for a long time but I am today and have stumbled upon some strange Ae behaviour.
Ae won't read the xmp data I give it during image sequences (more specifically time-lapse edited in Lr).
My workflow goes like this:
Edit a RAW image in Lr, copy and paste the parameters to all the files in the folder and then save the metadata to all of the files. This creates a "sidecar" .xmp file for each image in the folder (as seen in the screen shot). This .xmp file is suppose to hold the edit information that Ae should interpret when I import the files as an image sequence, but it doesn't. Is there a function I am supposed to enable in Ae CC for this to happen?
Working with Adobe CC everything and Lr5 (current update). Latest version of Mountain Lion OS.
When you are importing the images as a set---as a single image sequence---then After Effects will use the Camera Raw settings specified in the XMP metatadata for the first image and apply it to the entire sequence.
Yeah the problem is that it does not read it the file. It imports the image sequence as shot from the camera. It does not apply the xmp data.
I started to save the meta data in the "Library" window as opposed to the "devlope" window and I got results. Not sure what happened there.
