Metadata on import
by Max Henstell on Feb 22, 2010 at 5:55:31 pm
Pardon me if I missed something - is it possible to include external metadata with an asset on import? I'd like metadata for an asset to be populated from an external XML file. The reason I ask if this is possible on import is because I'd like to avoid a WriteXML, Grab the ID, then ReadXML scenario for every asset. Is this possible? I see that devices have a metadata sync policy, but where is this metadata synced? Thanks
I too am looking for a solution that can attach xml metadata to a video file at import so that both are associated on imported. I cannot see anything about this in the docs. Any solutions are welcome.

Yes i too am looking for a way to do this, as we deal with reuters footage that comes with an XML, it would be good to have the metadata mapped along with script notes mapped to annotations.
From the FCP server documentation it seems you need to write XML on ingest (which is no problem to do with a response), then have some script to merge the provided XML with the generated one and then read it back.
Of course a one hit solution would be even better.
