[Eric Chard]"Another mystery field in the Project Media window: what is the "Rating" field? How can it be edited to actually be functional?"
I'm guessing that this is all part of Sony's "broken" implementation of tape capture. There is a Rating and Comment field on the HDV capture tool but this never gets carried over to the media in the Project Media. With today's tapeless workflow all the rage, I doubt if it will ever get fixed.
There is also a Rating field in the Media Manager and that doesn't get carried over to the Project Media window either. :(
Ahhh well, more room in the PM window. Thanks for the clarification. (it'd be nice if mentioned in the dox, but nooooooooooooo..... )
I find the COMMENT field to be VERY useful indeed in the context of logging media -- indispensable really, if I'm going to be as paperless as possible.
Logging and searching seems to be a rather neglected aspect of SVMS11P. A semi-separate logging facility would be welcome, and the ability to search comments and assign tags to media would be a good addition.
Looking at the fields available as Columns in the PM window, there's a heavy engineer-centric, versus EDITOR-centric, feel to what is available. TAGS would be especially good.
Or so it seems to this noob.
