    Source Browser shows “Last Modified” aka Date of Shoot...?

    Inside MC, I could use the metadata that resides on my original, legacy-Imported files: The Date it was shot,pre-import into MC (not the MXF MC Creation Date). I just noticed that Source Browser shows both dates, which is very handy if the file itself is AWOL, not on the system and I want to re-import or Link.

    Can we somehow copy that “Last Midified” metadata into a Bin column displaying previously Imported files?

    Is there a way to do it?  If not, please make it so...

    Metadata support is somewhat lacking in MC. It all depends on what populates the metadata fields, and that's generally the plugin which links/imports the data (including whatever native ingesters are built into MC). For example, if I use MediaInfo on my XAVC-S clips, it shows me the the shoot date encoded in the metadata. This does not get populated by the Avid generic plug-in (I don't have the Nablet XAVC-S plug-in for comparison). So it's possible, but not implemented (at least not for the plug-ins that I have available which I normally use).

    My minor discovery, I think,  was that we can look up a non-supported plug-in's original date, the same one that is shown at the PC finder level. by using Source Browser's "Last Modified" column. It's tantalizing to think that the metadata is sitting inside Source Browser, and wouldn't it be nice to be able to export/send or simply see the same metadate column in our bins... see attached pic  and note the Bin's Creation Dates vs. Source Browser's "Last Modified" dates...

    OK, I see what you mean. The Last Modified date in the source browser matches the shoot date in my XAVC-S as well. So the plug-in sees the metadata, and simply isn't populating it. There's a good feature request (actually I'd like the option to have it set the Shoot Date field instead of the Last Modified date, as it's really what the metadata is about).
