Reading Tags from file properties

Postby NN635040629419692192UL » Tue Sep 17, 2013 3:34 pm

I have hundreds of files that I have loaded into media expression but it does not read their keywords. This information is visible when right clicking on the actual file and under properties going to the 'details tab' - they can then be found listed under 'tags'. But I cannot get Media expressions to read this information. The files were sent to me so I want to know if its possible to import this information before going back to her.

Please help!

Hello <?>,
Not all metadata is compatible...
It's depending on with wat application it' was added. The most compatible fields are Keywords. Here you can see some of my fields in Internet explorer (left) and EM (right):

I added these words in EM and synchronised them into the image so they are 'readeble' by IE.
The People field in EM however is an example of a not compatible field.
