Batch exporting file summaries out of CatDV
on Oct 31, 2013 at 9:07:17 pm

Is it possible to batch export clip summaries with the desired metadata out of CatDv into one large or multiple text docs or pdfs? I'm looking to create a simple text document(s) that have all the basic information and specific user defined fields that I can hand off. XML's aren't bringing the desired text into excel or word as cleanly as I'd like. Maybe I'm not doing it right. Summary pages are perfect but it seems you can only access/export them one at a time per clip (file).

Any thoughts? Thanks very much.

hi Colin

there are at least a couple of ways of going about this

you can export data in CatDV in a number of ways see http://www.squarebox.com/client-manual-additional-importers-and-exporters/ for the options but using catdv's own xml will give you all the metadata for a selection of clips

alternatively by creating custom views and then printing them you can achive a more bespoke output in a verity of formats see the links below for pointers on how to customize displays and print

printing from CatDV http://www.squarebox.com/client-manual-printing/

I hope this helps you reach your aims in terms of export

Cheers Dougal
