    When is the Modified Date attribute updated?

    I feel that Interplay's "Modified Date" attribute could be useful but it's not clear to me exactly what it is. The Interplay documentation says that it's updated when an asset is "modified from the bin". So I'm assuming that it's updated if you check the asset back in from Media Composer and one of the following has happened:

    * You've added a resolution by transcoding

    * You've created a new version of a sequence

    Do any other other things count as modifications, eg. changing metadata like the display name? I can see that doing this via Interplay Access doesn't update this column.

    Incidentally, this attribute is erroneously called "Modification Date" in the WS reference.

    Re: When is the Modified Date attribute updated?

    Hi,

    The Modified Date is set inside the AAF by the Client creating/modifying/checking in the AAF, for example MC, or Airspeed.

    The Engine offers also server controlled timestamp properties:
    • “Initial Checkin Date”
    • “Last Checkin Date”
    • “Database Modification Time”
    The first two are self-explanatory.
    The “Database Modification Time” is a little tricky, because it does not update on every modification. It updates on markers, AAFs, headframes and new resolutions, but NOT on property changes.

    Property change timestamps are not accesible through APIs as of yet.

    Thanks

    Thanks Vadym, that's just what I wanted to know. So the Modified Date is updated when you check an asset in again from Media Composer, even if nothing has actually changed?

    This is controlled by Media Composer as an Interplay Client. So it may be version dependent. At least in 8.4 I see more intelligent behavior where sequence modified date changes when I add/remove segments but not move bluebar/in/out around

    Re: When is the Modified Date attribute updated?

    Hi

    Is there any way to track any property change on interplay ?

    Not as a result of checking in from media composer or any other tool - but changing a property like name, comments etc.

    I am using interplay 3.7.0.

    Thanks in advance
