    Lightbulb Copying tags

    Hello,

    I would like to see a utility codec added to DMC and the batch converter to allow copying of tags from an xml file or identically named file in a source directory.

    There are the DSP effects Write metadata file and Read metadata file.

    Try use the Write metadata file effect to write one, then you will know the format the xml should be in to be imported with read metadata file.

    Yeah, I've already used the Write metadata file dsp to create the files. For some reason though, the Read metadata file doesn't seem to be working.

    The problem is, I have a library of original WAV files in a directory D:\Music\Original\WAV which I have remastered in a program call Platinum Notes, which then outputs the processed files into a temporary directory D:\Music\Remastered\PNTemp which appends _pn to the end of the filename eg. Track1_pn.wav. I have copied the xml files to the temp directory and added the _pn to the end of the filename, and edited the ConvertedFile properties in the xml file to

    Code:
    	<SourceFile>
    		<FileName>David Guetta - One More Love - 01 - David Guetta feat. Kelly Rowland - When Love Takes Over.wav</FileName>
    		<FileNameNoExt>David Guetta - One More Love - 01 - David Guetta feat. Kelly Rowland - When Love Takes Over</FileNameNoExt>
    		<FileNameExt>.wav</FileNameExt>
    		<FileNamePath>D:\Music\Original\WAV\CD\David Guetta\One More Love\</FileNamePath>
    	</SourceFile>
    	<ConvertedFile>
    		<FileName>David Guetta - One More Love - 01 - David Guetta feat. Kelly Rowland - When Love Takes Over_pn.wav</FileName>
    		<FileNameNoExt>David Guetta - One More Love - 01 - David Guetta feat. Kelly Rowland - When Love Takes Over_pn</FileNameNoExt>
    		<FileNameExt>.wav</FileNameExt>
    		<FileNamePath>D:\Music\Remastered\PNTemp\</FileNamePath>
    	</ConvertedFile>

    Re: Copying tags

    The item you have pasted in the code box, what is this? the xml containing tags?

    Re: Copying tags

    There are no id tags, only filenames.

    That was just the portions that I edited, not the full file.

    Re: Copying tags

    Any thoughts why the xml read is not working?
