Import using CatDV XML Batch File failures / Worker 5.0.6
on Oct 7, 2013 at 11:24:41 am

Hello everybody,

since Update from Worker 4 to 5 I cannot use CatDV XML Batchfile Import. The files will be imported, but I miss all Metadata provided in the XML File. Besides the Worker Update, nothing was changed on the system or on the XML Format.

I tried both ways to import the immediate and the classic mode, but nothing works.

Has anybody observed similar effects? Any Idea what I can do?

I use CatDV Server 6.0.7. on Mac OS Server 10.6.8

Thx and regards
Leo

Are you getting the java.lang.NullPointerException?

I'm seeing that on a test I'm running. I'll post up results.

Hi Bryson,

I have to study the Log file first. Meanwhile I did several tests. This is what I have observed:

TEST 1
- export an existing clip as an FCP 7 XML file
- drop it in the watch folder for Worker
- Configure Workerjob : File Job, Interpret Batch FIles: true
- Result: the file is being imported. The Filed "Notes" was parsed in a wright way. All other fields are USER fields and the were remained empty.

TEST 2
- export an existing clip as an FCP Batch File
- drop it in the watch folder for Worker
- Configure Workerjob : File Job, Interpret Batch FIles: true
- Result: the file is being imported as a text file. no Video was recognized. No metadata imported.

TEST 3
- make manually a CatDV XML Batch File with a text editor and give it the same name as the video clip
- drop the viodeoclip and the XML file in the watch folder for Worker
- Configure Workerjob : File Job, Interpret Batch FIles: true
- Result: the file is being imported. All Metadata were parsed in a wright way. All Metadata war there.
- Success

TEST 4
- same CatDV XML Batch File as in Test 3. Videoclip stored in another directory. The Path is mentioned in the XML under MEDIAPATH
- drop the XML file in the watch folder for Worker
- Configure Workerjob : Batch Job, Interpret Batch FIles: true
- Result: the file is being imported as a video file. No metadata imported

Worker can recognize the Metadata only if I process a File Job and use the CatDV XML File as a sidecar file. Both must be in the same directory and have the same names. Good to know, it works this way, but not good for my workflow.

I contacted the support of Squarebox and I hope to get a solution as soon as possible since I purchased another Worker Instance a couple of days ago.
