LR 7.3.1 doesn't read the dimensions of MP4s imported from a Sony RX100 V:



From the SDK, photo:getRawMetadata () returns {} for "dimensions" and "croppedDimensions".

Two examples:

The problem appears related to the presence of the .thm sidecars created by the camera. If you copy the .mp4 files to your harddrive without the .thm sidecars and import from there, LR correctly reads the dimensions.

Is it unique to this camera, John?  Or, all cameras using a .thm sidecar?

I don't know -- that's the only camera I have that produces .thm sidecars.
