Sony Video Files - .m2ts

Postby DocB1973 » Thu Jul 10, 2014 8:39 pm

I hope this hasn't been talked about yet, at least I didn't see it via search. Anyway, when I import video from a Sony Handycam into Pre V12 I get zip for metadata. Is there a way to include the metadata on import?

Where are you looking for the metadata, Doc, and what metadata are you looking for?

If you used Premiere Elements' Add Media tool (the Video Importer) to download the video from your camcorder to your computer, the Elements Organizer should your video specs as well as the date and time it was shot.

Premiere Elements, however, doesn't include the time and date data that I know of though.

Thanks Steve for getting back to me so quick.

All I get in Pre V12 for .m2ts files is:
Filename
Date Created
Date Modified

Date shot is very important to me as I'm trying to organize video over the years from m2ts files. If I look at .m2ts video files in Sony's PlayMemories software I get everything you would expect to see for video metadata:

Date and time shot should be visible in the Elements Organizer in version 12. But you're not going to find the details you're looking for (like timecode) in Premiere Elements.

Steve, do you know if date created in Pre v12 equate to date shot. If not, I don't see where you see that in organizer.

Actually, you're right. The Organizer does not currently list time and date the video was shot. It only lists the date it was added to your computer.

I think if you need more detailed metadata, you may need to look into another possibly professional program.

Thanks Steve for confirming what I was seeing is just the way it is.
