Metadata issue in PPro - UserClipName populates in Metadata and won't go away

I have P2 footage that is behaving oddly in PP - PPro CS6.  I am on a PC, using Windows 7 Professional.
Footage was shot and archived onto our PC last summer - as is our typical process - and a PP project was started. It was left dormant till now - 6 months later.  I am the new editor tasked with finishing this edit. 
I began by organizing assets in the project and then reviewing all files to identify what I have to work with - this step includes logging info into the metadata (as I typically do).  I noticed that the UserClipName was appearing in the SHOT metadata item - I wanted to use SHOT for the Shot number, so I replaced the UserClipName that was in that field with the Shot Number, and I made other additions to the Metadata in the appropriate fields.  I saved the project often during this process.  I closed the project.  I then tried to open another project in PP and nothing opened.  I tried to open just the program, and nothing opened.  I then logged out of my user account, and then re-logged in.  I tried to open PP and it opened fine.
I opened other PP projects to see if I could see the UserClipName in the SHOT item (or anywhere) in the Metadata window - and I did not see it.  I also did some test changes to the metadata to see if I could replicate the same issue with the program not opening - changed metadata, save, close - and no problems with opening PP.  I created a new project in PP for the above footage in question, imported it, and there was the UserClipNames in the SHOT metadata field.  I did not change any metadata - just saved and closed, and was able to reopen PP.  I then tried to add data to the Metadata, save and close - I was not able to reopen PP.
I have imported this footage in various ways - thru the media browser; click and drag from finder window; double click from within the Projects panel then browse to the files; using cntrl-I - and each of these methods was with a clean (new) project.  No love.
I also tried to convert this footage directly in Encoder as well as through Prelude (which just takes it to Encoder) into three different formats - P2; Quicktime; H.264 - then created new projects in PP. No love.
What I know is that I can work in the project fine (as far as I can tell so far) as long as I do not touch any metadata.  That is a bummer for me - but, oh well.  But the fact that this issue exists concerns me -I have no assurances that I will I be able to complete this edit successfully.  Fortunately it is only a short PSA, ... and for extra help, I will make my offerings to the Edit-Gods to help get me through to the end without any further issues. 
I would love to hear if anyone out here has any suggestions on what might be going on - and ideally a solution.  I am okay with appeasing the Edit-Gods - but I would prefer to have more solid solution.

Hi Sali,
I began by organizing assets in the project and then reviewing all files to identify what I have to work with - this step includes logging info into the metadata (as I typically do).  I noticed that the UserClipName was appearing in the SHOT metadata item - I wanted to use SHOT for the Shot number, so I replaced the UserClipName that was in that field with the Shot Number, and I made other additions to the Metadata in the appropriate fields.  I saved the project often during this process.  I closed the project.  I then tried to open another project in PP and nothing opened.  I tried to open just the program, and nothing opened.  I then logged out of my user account, and then re-logged in.  I tried to open PP and it opened fine.
Thanks for your post.
Let me see if I understand you. You say that the text string, "UserClipName" was in the "Shot" metadata field. By replacing that text string with the a shot number in the Shot metadata you began to have unexpected behavior, such as, not being able to reopen a project. Logging out of your user account, then logging back in allowed you to then open the project. Is that correct? That's pretty odd, for sure.
I opened other PP projects to see if I could see the UserClipName in the SHOT item (or anywhere) in the Metadata window - and I did not see it.  I also did some test changes to the metadata to see if I could replicate the same issue with the program not opening - changed metadata, save, close - and no problems with opening PP.
Sounds like you have hit a bug with P2 footage and Premiere Pro CS6. There is a closed bug in our database, but the state may been triggered with subsequent changes to your system, or the like. The bug also may not have been completely fixed with your particular kind of P2 media.
As I understand it, the issue has to do with how XMP metadata is interpreted by Premiere Pro. I do not believe there is a workaround for this issue other than not changing that particular metadata field. Perhaps you can use a different field, like Comment or Description, for shot number.
What I know is that I can work in the project fine (as far as I can tell so far) as long as I do not touch any metadata.  That is a bummer for me - but, oh well.  But the fact that this issue exists concerns me -I have no assurances that I will I be able to complete this edit successfully. 
I really hope you can get through this project. Let us know if you hit any more issues along the way.
Thanks,
Kevin

    Metadata issues in A3. This is a real concern if your images go to third parties from A3.

    Thanks, dzedward,
    I posted a reply with quite some effort in it, but it is
    dissapeared after pressing the reply button. what I as explaining
    was that I use an attached sound and so streaming is not an issue.
    Please look at the few lines of code I use in my demo (please use
    the link above for the fla with the WAV):
    audioClock=new Sound(createEmptyMovieClip("sound1",1));
    audioClock.attachSound("theSync");
    audioClock.setVolume(90);
    stop();
    //When playing a swf (in most cases) the audio clock is on
    every 46.4399093 ms.
    //A onSoundComplete function only starts ON a clock puls!
    That explains "gaps"
    //when people complain working with audio loops in Flash.
    //The audio sample used in this test has a 200 ms duration.
    It can't be shorter.
    //So it is started 25 ms from the end. When the sample is at
    the end, the flash player
    //pauses for 46.4399093 minus 25 ms, and starts the audio
    sample from the same point
    //again ( that is at the next clock puls). That's fine for
    hearing audio clock and
    //this test:
    audioClock.start(0.175,1);
    audioClock.onSoundComplete = function() {
    audioClock.start(0.175,1);

  • 4.2.1 Does Not Fix" Crash-on-screen saver" bug or metadata issues

    ATV2 crashes as soon as it goes to screen saver. 4.2.1 does not fix this. WTC?
    You have to set screen saver to "Never" to prevent crashing.
    No one checks these things?

    Not seen the screensaver issue.
    Personally I think this update was a patch to fix the DVI flickering issues that rendered the device unusable for many people - other annoyances can be fixed later but we better keep reminding them:

  • Lightroom 6.1 TIFF metadata issue

    I work in Adobe Lightroom to process photos and move them to MediaBin (4.6) to catalog and metatag; this is what my company uses for its photo library. Last week Adobe creative cloud prompted me to upgrade Lightroom; I was using 5.7, and the newest version is 6.1. In doing so, the captions and copyright information that I write in Lightroom are no longer showing up when they come in to MediaBin.
    At first I thought the metadata was getting stripped following being exported from Lightroom (exported as TIFFs), but when looking at the files in photoshop, I can see all of the metadata is present. I then began a series of tests to try and figure this out.
    I first moved a previously exported TIFF file from the previous version of Lightroom into MediaBin, and I could see the data that was embedded. MediaBin was working as it should.
    Next, I took a file exported as a TIFF from the new Lightroom and moved it into MediaBin. I could not see the metadata, as expected. Then I downloaded it from MediaBin- as I would do to fulfill a photo request- and opened it in Photoshop. I was surprised- all the metadata was there! For some reason, MediaBin just couldn’t see it.
    Finally, on a lark, I exported a file from the new Lightroom, but this time made it into a JPEG. When I moved this into MediaBin, I could see the metadata! I tried this with other file formats- DNG, PSD- and only the TIFF files show up minus their metadata.
    What could cause this to happen, and only in TIFF form? I am under the impression that Metadata is just simple text information attached to a file, but I am confused that only in TIFF form do we have an issue.
    Thanks!

    It appears that this is caused by the same problem described here: Lightroom CC: JPEG format tripping up other programs. JPEGs and TIFFs use the same layout of metadata, and I confirmed that your TIFF has the same atypical layout as LR-produced JPEGs.
    The issue is not that LR has a "bug" -- the TIFFs and JPEGs it produces strictly conform to industry standards.  Rather, it's that there are many programs out there, evidently including HP MediaBin, that are buggy and don't conform to the standards and get tripped up by the atypical way that LR writes its metadata.  Of course, Adobe can't change all such non-conforming programs, so LR users would very much prefer that LR go back to using a more typical layout of metadata.
    Please add your vote and opinion (with details) to the bug report linked above.  The more people complain, especially professional and commercial users, the more likely Adobe will prioritize a fix.

  • Metadata Issue iBooks

    We recently submitted an Algebra 1 iBook created with iBooks author.  Received the message that there was a metadata issue.  Was wondering if anyone knew:
    1. What is the metadata they are referring to
    2. How do you edit it
    3. Once fixed, do you have to completely resubmit and start over with the submission process, or can you edit what has already been submitted.
    Much thanks

    Meta data is the details you entered when you acted to submit your book using iTunes Producer.
    Check for red flags for that book in iTunes Producer....could be any number of things - we can't tell without more info
    Just edit the stuff for that book using iTP for whatever needs fixing and try again.

  • Metadata Issue?

    I submitted my book Friday morning. Checking yestderday, I see this.
    "Metadata Issue. There is an issue with the metadata. Contact us after you have verified and redelivered the metadata."
    Trouble is, I can't see anything wrong with the metadata. The blanks are all filled in. Has anyone else seen this? I did a search here and it seems to indicate that Apple won't be able to tell me what the problem is. Any hints or pointers would be greatly appreciated.

    It would be easy to verify for iTunes Producer whether the title in the metadata matches the title in the book. Sadly, it doesn't do that.
    "Metadata Issue. There is an issue with the metadata. Contact us after you have verified and redelivered the metadata."
    Singularly useful error message. The author gets to play the guessing game. Why not just say "The title in the metadata doesn't match the title of the book"?
    I have the same problem with many of my submitted ebooks.
    All I can suggest is to diligently go through each field of metadata, checking that it meets the requirements set up in the publisher guide and that the metadata is consistent with the book you submitted.

  • Lightroom TIFF metadata issue

    Very shortly after Lightroom 2 was released I used it to convert all the photos in our archive from JPEG to TIFF.
    These were all the digital camera photos we had shot before we started shooting as Camera Raw. We use Lightroom
    for creating files but not for cataloging. For cataloging we use Cumulus as we have to provide access to people
    on both coasts. What I have recently discovered is that when I add keywords in Cumulus and write those changes
    back to an asset the keywords disappear from the file's metadata. If I take a sample file and resave it as a TIFF in
    Photoshop then write to it from Cumulus the keywords are all there in the metadata.
    My question now is, does anyone on this forum know what is different about the metadata structure between a PS TIFF
    and a LR TIFF. I'm hoping to get some insight into this so the Cumulus engineers in Germany can help me with a workaround.
    I'm trying to avoid having to convert 100-150,000 files.
    Thanks,
                Jeffrey

    Okay, using exiftool I took snapshots of the same photo's metadata in 4  different states.
    1- I took a tiff created in Photoshop and wrote  keywords to it from Cumulus.
    2- I then imported that photo into  Lightroom and exported a tiff copy.
    3- I reimported The PS tiff into  Cumulus and added a keyword so we could
    see specifically where  Cumulus writes.
    4- I brought the LR-tiff back into LR, added a keyword, saved to the file and
    then imported that into Cumulus. I added a keyword in Cumulus, saved to
    the file and, pow, all the IPTC data is gone.
    So, there are only a few thousand that we have written keywords to from Lightroom.
    I will stop that practice and only write from Cumulus but, I still wonder if I should convert
    all of those tiffs to PS tiffs.  hmm...

  • How to populate the Sender and Receiver GLN/ID  in the Seeburger Message Tracking

    HI Team,
    Scenario :
    ECC--> PI--> Party
    Sending GS1 XML Message to party (Not EDI).  Sender Party and Receiver Party appearing as expected.
    BUT User expecting to see the Sender GLN and Receiver GLN in Seeburger Message Tracking.
    It should be dynamically picked form GS1 Message. Should Appear in RED BOXES Shown below.What Module Parameters Should be used for this.
    I have Tried destTargetMsg  and destSourceMsg. But did'nt work.
    can anyone please Help

    Hi Veman
    You are correct. For XML to XML, you do not need BIC module.
    However, since you are not using BIC module, you will not be able to enrich the metadata using the archiveXI parameter during processing at the adapter framework.
    Another place to enrich the metadata would be during message mapping. You can call a custom UDF to populate the metadata and create an entry in Seeburger Message Tracking.
    Please refer to the Seeburger manual for Message Tracking Function for more details on how to create the UDF.
