Hello! I want to add keywords to Panasonic's 1080p60 video files. I create projects on PProCS5.5 in Master Collection. I understand that i can add keywords to a file in a PP project, but that doesn't seem practical for my needs. I need to be able to filter clips before creating a project. I could put the keywords in the file name, but that would make extremely long names and be laborious. Panasonic stores a clip's metadata in a CPI file instead of an XMP file. Panasonic/Sony forgot to/couldn't add this keyword capability when they created AVCHD Progressive 2.0, which they haven't updated (talked to Panasonic today) and their HD WriterAE. Bridge5 is no help. Can Lightroom4 or 5 do the trick (i don't have it)? Here's the need: There are up to 10 children recorded in each video file and i need to add their first and last names as keywords (and other keywords) in the metadata so i can assemble the clips for adding to a PP project, one project for each child usually. They're never the same 10 kids, altho some are the same for a period of time, ie there's overlap/turnover. Additionally, i may not assemble a child's clips for up to 5 years. Any sidecars, or workarounds, or perhaps there's something about PP5.5 or Media Browser that i haven't yet learned about resolving this issue? If it's of any help, i use Panasonic's HC-X900MP camcorder and i always record at the highest resolution. Adding keywords to its photos is easily done in Bridge. Thanks, Don.
I have never used it but Adobe Prelude was designed for doing this sort of thing but I'm not sure if CS5.5 has this program.
Hello Richard! CS5.5 does not have Prelude, but it does have its predecessor OnLocation. I'll try that. Thanks, Don.
OnLocation is incompatible. Tried to download PreludeCS6 trial, but that failed. What about Lightroom? or Premiere Elements?
