This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom: Metadata including dimensions and capture date for MP4 not read when THM sidecar present

Using LR CC Classic 7.3.1.  When I import a mixture of still and video files into lightroom and attempt to sort by 'Capture Time' the .ARW (sony raw) and .mov (video) are separated, but within their file extension, they are sorted correctly by capture time.  If I edit capture time (Metadata>Edit Capture Time) and do not make any changes but select 'Change', then the file is placed in proper capture time sequence.  This behavior has been observed by others via a conversation on

This is a difficult issue when one is shooting with two different cameras with different extensions and one wants to sort all of the captured pictures in sequence or when there is a mixture of stills and video from the same camera.

Please fix this bug

This should be fixed in the next Lr update.
