Avid Metadata Logging and Tracking


Many times I get asked what the different columns do in Media Composer as far as logging metadata and how one column may be better than another for a certain workflow. A very useful document has been updated to reflect changes with Media Composer v7 and also has a quick primer on the ALE header specification for different project types.

With ALE being the only “man-readable” file format that is supported for import, knowing how and what these columns do is a useful skill to have. Many of the tips presented here on 24p deal with metadata and how to get that into Media Composer, so consider this the master cheat sheet.
