ALE with a column of LENS DATA and SENSOR FPS | Needs to be BurnIn in the Video.

Hey Guys,
I have a bin with clips imported with ALE with a column of LENS DATA and SENSOR FPS and a few other columns from the camera. Source is from ARRI ALEXA, MXF.
I want to BURN IN this Lens info on my timeline video like we Burn-In Clipname and Source TC.

I added a Generate>Timecode Effect>Display 1>Source Bin Column/Sequence Bin Column, None of the Lens_type, Sensor_Fps or any other *column listed in the ALE from camera is not displayed in the timecode effect. Is there a way to bring this in, BURN-IN this on the Video.
Need Help.

Sorry, if it's not in that list, it can't be added to the effect. You can add TEXT (option in the bottom of the effects editor of that effect)...but that would mean manually adding that.

That information is too rarely needed to be considered, I guess.

It's not well thought out that the list is limited to only to "standard" columns in the bin and not custom ones imported by ALE or manually created in the bin. It's even more strange that it shows column names that you can't find from the list of all columns when adding one to the bin. ☹

That being said, you can repurpose some of the supporting columns in that burn-in list (further frustrating that the list is no in overall alphabetical order...). For example, I repurposed the "Camera" and IDataLink" columns available for burn-in and added my custom data such as lens, etc. I made stuff up for the example, but you get the gist. Once those columns are in the bin, duplicate the column you want to display into those columns.

Be aware that the IDataLink column that is available is not available in most project types, probably just film projects, but if you create a column with the exact name matching uppercase/lowercase it will work. Or use some other column like Camroll that may not already be in use. Labroll is not available in the bin but may also work if you create manually.

Once that is done, then select those columns in the burn-in selection.

Select "Custom Property" in that pulldown menu and then another box will open up where you can type the custom columns to burn in. It's not the most elegant application, but it works.
