Features and Tools
- Smart Bins
- Check and Compare
- Merge and Append
The Export Tool allows users to easily create presets and export your metadata in multiple different formats in once.
You can create multiple layouts and save them as presets.
For example, you can group together all clips from A camera, or all clips that share the same resolution from your entire project. You can use any single metadata or combination of that to create your custom rules and filters.
Another example would be to compare your metadata against an MHL manifest to make sure that all your clips have been safely downloaded and verified.
A good use case could be combining a batch of metadata files from a whole day of camera rolls into a single master ALE, or merging metadata coming from two separate ALE files made by different softwares for the same roll.
