Timestamp on Timelapse

Sun Jan 18, 2015 12:32 pm

Hey guys,

I want to display the actual time from a timelapse image sequence in the video. The required information is in the metadata of the images, which are imported as an image sequence.
As I searched the web, I got to the expressions and think that they are the best way to solve my problem.

Does anyone of you know, how to access the metadata in an image sequence?

Greetings,

Expressions can't access metadata, but scripting can. Adobe's JavaScript Tools Guide has a chapter on it. It's not simple, but there are probably some good examples around.

Thanks for your reply.
That means either I read the JavaScript Tools Guide or I manually look up the date and time and then calculate the time from the time passed in the composition and the interval the images were taken.
I will most likley choose the second method as it seems easier :wink:
