Tip #1606: Change Metadata Labels for Video Exports
Metadata can be embedded into ProRes, MP4, MP3 and QuickTime files.
Have you ever wondered where those labels come from when you share (export) a file? These labels are stored as project metadata.
Here’s how to change them:
- Select the project in the Browser.
- Click the “trident” arrow in the Inspector (top arrow in screen shot). This displays the project metadata.
- Change the text in any field.
- Or, click the white down arrow (bottom red arrow in screen shot) to display more than a dozen other metadata fields that can be added to your export.
These will be retained in the project until you change them.
You can also add metadata to videos using Compressor.
