CatDV not reading ID3 tags in an Aiff file

Hey guys,

Catdv isn't extracting the metadata in the ID3 tag in an AIFF-C file. The same file converted to Mp3 with the same ID3 tags works fine. Any insight?

Thanks
Brad

I posted something similar, but in regards to Apple Soundtrack Loop file metadata not being read, but other audio files with the same ID info having varying degrees of success in terms of CatDV parsing the file properly.

Any updates on this?

Hi Gardiner,

Many thanks for the file. I just wanted to let you know we're still investigating this. We're very busy at the moment with all that's going on re FCP X and a new FCSrvr import tool we're about to release, amongst other things, but we would definitely like to add full support for reading metadata from any audio files we don't currently support. I can't give you any timescales yet but it's definitely on our list...

-Rolf

What is Final Cut Pro X and FCSrvr? Never heard of them. ;)

Ok so did you at least experience the same issue I did in terms of the info being misread? I want to confirm that it is something that is a general issue with reading those type of files and not specific to my setup.

Could I load the files now, then once the bug is fixed, do an asset refresh to bring in the proper metadata or should I wait?

Let me know and thanks for getting back to me.

Best,
Gardiner

Yes, we also didn't read any metadata from those files. We use a combination of tools such as QuickTime and our own parsers to read metadata from a very wide variety of files. If QuickTime doesn't provide all the metadata we want we sometimes need to write our own code to read that metadata.

The Tools > Reanalyse Media command is designed precisely to address this situation, where you've already added your own log notes to an asset but the technical metadata is incorrect and you want to refresh that data without losing your log notes (perhaps a later version of CatDV handles those files better, or you've now installed an additional codec, etc.)

Hi Neil,

I'm a editor at LVBnetworks and we got resently Catdv the enterprice edition.
We've got 8 sets.
Now i'm ready with my setup and want to use a other machine to check something.
But now i've got to set my media search paths again for each group!
Why does catdv don't load the settings from the server?
Do i have configere each workstation?

Thanks for your replay,
i hope you can help me.

This was covered recently in the thread titled "User Columns".

Are there any updates to the Apple Loops metadata issue mentioned at the top of this thread?

Just curious.

Thanks,
Gardiner
