Metadata access after discontinuing CC
on Jun 10, 2013 at 5:09:47 pm

There's been much discussion about access to CC project-related info if you discontinue CC. Some argue after a project is finished and delivered, this is rare -- just re-subscribe for a month in that case.

However that doesn't consider keyword and logging metadata used in asset management. Let's say over two years you invest hundreds of hours tagging metadata using Prelude CC. Even after the projects are delivered, the tagged raw material still constitutes a repository which is frequently keyword-searched for new projects. E.g, "didn't we already shoot something like that last year?"

Can that metadata be exported and used in, say, CS6, or is CC keyword metadata only upward-compatible? If it cannot be exported for prior versions, that would lock you into CC even more than the project info (tracks, layers, effects, etc).

Metadata from Adobe applications like Prelude is stored as XMP metadata:

XMP is an open, XML-based format that can be read by many non-Adobe programs.

One suggestion: it would be perfect if Prelude remember the words that are repeated in the tags / metadata. And so to avoid having to remember every word used to log.
Thanks!
