I am running a 30 days trial on LR5 as I want to "ascend" from Photoshop Elements / Organizer to PS CC / LR. I noticed immediately that movie clips from my (Sony) digital still cameras don't sort by their capture date/time, but instead put at the bottom of the catalog. This is a no-go for me - I have been used to Organizer doing it the right way for a decade, so the big pro should also be able to get it. The problem is the same in a converted Organizer catalog, and I am not sure I want to pay for a product that fails on such a significant matter.
I have seem some related discussions about meta-data for video, but not found a solution. Adobe / others, what is the plan or best workaround?
LR's support for video metadata is "incomplete" (i.e. buggy), and since Adobe hasn't addressed the problem for over 3 years, it seems unlikely they'll fix it any time soon: Lightroom: LR4 Beta: Metadata applied to videos in Lightroom isn't available in other applications. I use my Any File plugin to manage video files in LR -- it properly handles video metadata (but it's a little clumsy to use due to limitations of the LR plugin SDK). The Video-Asset Management plugin works similarly but provides a few more features specific to video.
