new algorithm implemented for evrDVR v2.0
integrates two of the most powerful tools
reading metadata, ExifTool and MediaInfo.
Starting from evrDVR Pro version 2.0.1
nor Media Info have to be installed because they are now built-ins in the application.
1. Install ExifTool. Go to ExifTool website here select MacOS Package and
install it. During the installation of ExifTool you will receive a security warning about an unknown
developer. ExifTool is a well respected command line tool written by Phil Harvey and has been
available for many years and downloading
from its website is considered by many to be safe.
Then proceed by clicking OK on the warning screen.
Then go to System Preferences > Security & Privacy and click the Open Anyway button.
Then macOS will warm you one more time, click Open. ExifTool DMG will open and you can
Install Media Info. Go to Media Info website
download the CLI (Command Line Interface) version for your version of macOS.
1. Install evrDVR Pro. Open the DMG file and drag & drop evrDVR.app to the Applications
(Move to Trash) the /Applications/ evrDVR.app.
On Run select a folder with media files to be processed.
A CSV file will be created inside the
selected folder with the name
_FolderName_evrDVR_mac.csv with the Resolve metadata of all media file supported in the
folder and sub folders.
1. Open a project containing clips you want to populate with imported metadata,
just click the
media pool (make sure a red line will be visible if
not point n.3 will be not
2. Optionally, select which clips in the Media Pool you want to import metadata to.
File > Import Metadata To > Media Pool to import metadata to potentially every
clip in the Media
Pool, or choose File > Import Metadata To >
Selected Clips to only import
metadata to clips
you selected in step 2.
the Import Metadata dialog appears, choose a
metadata CSV file to import, and
When the Metadata Import dialog appears,
by default, DaVinci
Resolve tries to use “Match
and “Match using clip start and end Timecode” to
match each line of
metadata in the CSV
file with a clip in the Media Pool, but
because "clip start and end
Timecode" are not
present in imported metadata you have to uncheck
“Match using clip
start and end
Timecode” and (optionally) check “Match using
source file paths".
choose which Merge Option you want to use in the
Metadata Import dialog.
There are three options:
update metadata items with entries in the source
The default setting. Only updates a clip’s metadata if there’s a valid entry in the imported CSV file. Other clip metadata fields are left as they were before the import.
- Update all metadata fields available in the source file: For each clip that corresponds to a line of metadata in the imported CSV file, every single metadata field referenced by the CSV file is overwritten, regardless of whether or not there’s a valid entry for that field.
- Update all metadata fields available in the source file and clear others: For each clip that corresponds to a line of metadata in the imported CSV file, every single metadata field referenced by the CSV file is overwritten, regardless of whether or not there’s a valid entry for that field. Furthermore, metadata fields that aren’t referenced by the imported CSV file are cleared of whatever metadata was there before.
When you’re finished choosing options,
click OK and all available metadata from
the source CSV
file will be imported.
