Organizing your quicktime movies

Recommended Posts

Did a search for this question, but didn't find anything.

 

Wondering if any of you ultra-organized mographers have found a good system for organizing quicktimes by keyword with metadata. I have not been able to find any way to do this in Adobe Bridge. You can add metadata galore on an image, but everything is greyed out for adding any sort of data to a quicktime file.

 

What would be really great is the functionality where you can roll over any file either in your finder or in bridge (or iview media pro) and get the yellow pop up window that provides as much custom info about each file that you wish to add and have it all be searchable through spotlight.

 

This image shows you what i'm referring to. So far it seems like Bridge can only pull the general info from the get info on any particular file.

Hope someone's been able to figure this out. Thanks for your feedback.

I'm using iView Media Pro and it works like a charm.

 

 

What are you doing in IView with quicktimes that allows keyword tagging? Is it all searchable?

 

Doesn't sound like anyone else knows so far how to do this on a mac without IView....but there's usually a way....so hoping someone will post their solution

 

 

In the meantime...I found a temporary solution in ITunes for adding a description to each quicktime file. There is a script here

that you can give a keyboard shortcut and basically input data about your quicktime. Problem is....it doesn't seem like it would be searchable using Bridge or the Finder. Either way....it does let you give a description about your file.

Sure. You can add tons of metadata and keywords. It will allow you to search the current catalog or even across multiple catalogs.
