Batch Process Metadata RIFF to ID3

Post by Damien Cassidy » Fri Dec 16, 2016 2:35 am

Hi,

I have a large number of BWF files that have descriptive metadata in the RIFF tags. I'd like to be able to use that data to populate the ID3 tags when batch converting to MP3.

Is this possible?

There is no way to transfer meta-data from one kind to another, sorry.

Hi Phillipe,

FYI: I found a way by setting up two batch processes.
Batch 1. Reads the desired BWF and RIFF data from the source BWF files and exports them as XML (no changes to source files).
Batch 2. Trans-codes the BWFs to MP3 using the XML files from batch 1 as input metadata mapped to the desired ID3 tags.

Regards,
Damien
