New Lightroom Plugin: Video-Asset Management
NOTE: Images with an icon next to them have been artificially shrunk to better fit your screen; click the icon to restore them, in place, to their regular size.

I've just released a new plugin for Adobe Lightroom, Video-Asset Management, allowing a modicum of video management from within Lightroom.

I spent much of the last several weeks working on a custom-metadata plugin that looked to be really great, until I ran into a Lightroom bug that totally killed the project (and my spirits).

Then, I had a moment of inspiration where I relized that in this age where more and more cameras and cell phones are offering video capabilities, it would be really useful to manage those videos from within Lightroom, along side the images from the same event. This moment of inspiration came when someone gave it to me.... I have a wonderful grasp for the obvious, at least after someone points it out to me. :-)

See the plugin's home page for more....


Comments so far....

I like the concept, but it will not load my video (AVI or MP4), I get an error: LrCatalog:addPhoto: can’t read file at path. I get this error twice. I am using LR 2.5, on a PowerPC Mac. Can you help

There’s not much I can do if it doesn’t work, sorry. It’s a very fragile process with many steps under the hood, and if any of them fail, you get either the can’t-read-file error, or a gray frame, and it’s very difficult to figure out what failed or why. I have spent many hours trying to debug these errors from afar, to little avail, so for this plugin I’m throwing in the towel, at least for now. —Jeffrey
