This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom: Read and write video metadata into video or sidecar

The Canon 5D Mark III does not produce .THM sidecar files with the .MOV video files, but all the same camera metadata is available in the .MOV file as was available in the .THM file (like with the Canon 7D). None of this .MOV metadata is being imported into LR. Also having this problem with Canon SX40HS.

See images below for the difference in metadata panels from 7D to 5D Mark III. Makes it impossible to use metadata filtering on videos!

Canon 5D Mk III Metadata in Lightroom:


Canon 7D Metadata in Lightroom:


Using Jeffrey Friedl's excellent "Metadata Viewer" Plugin, it is possible to see that all the metadata is available in the 5D .MOV file, so I would expect it to be pulled into Lightroom as well.

Thanks!

I have fixed the Canon 7D screen shot in that thread to show the correct metadata for a 7D MOV file.
