I’ve been struggling for quite some time to find out how to export embedded keywords and similar metadata for stock agencies with Final Cut X.
All the top Google searches reveal is a lot of information about adding meta data for the editing process, and nothing at all about how to modify keywords for export. So it’s taken me some time to find the right link and instructions and figure that I can’t be the only one who has been struggling with this . . .
Firstly, you must have a project selected in the library. If you have a clip on a timeline selected, the relevant information shown in the image above won’t display.
With the project selected, reveal the Inspector (Command-4). With the project selected, the Info and Share tabs should be visible. If you have something else selected, the Share tab won’t show up.
Note the edit Attributes options that are available in the Share section.
Not all stock agencies have the ability to read metatags embedded in video yet . . . but as a workflow process, it’s still much better for those that do.
