I am ingesting into FSsvr using log and transfer. I am using the media metadata set with the addition of the FCP log and capture fields.

When I ingest clips i find that some of them (randomly it seems) do not appear to have the log and transfer metadata attached.

Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

    Are you adding any of the metadata after the Log & Transfer process, ie: via the Browser in Final Cut Pro? This metadata is only written to the file entered during the Log & Transfer process.

    You can also use a script that can pull all of the metadata from a fcp project and add tat metadata to all the related assets. If you want more than just the log and transfer metadata this may be a way to go.

    "Apple Pro Training Series: Final Cut Server 1.5" A must have for all users.

    In the Administration window, go to Metadata Set, the open the Media set. Add these two groups to the set, all that info is already there:
    "FCP Log & Transfer"

    That's all there is to it.
