Operating Planning Metadata




Planning metadata is information about shooting
and recording plans, recorded in an XML file.
You can shoot using clip names and shot mark

Example of a planning metadata file

This camcorder can display clip names and shot
mark names defined in the following languages:
• English
• Chinese
• German
• French
• Italian
• Spanish
• Dutch
• Portuguese
• Swedish
• Norwegian
• Danish
• Finnish


• If you define clip and shot mark names in

languages other than those listed above, they
may not be displayed on the LCD monitor/EVF

• If you define clip and shot mark names in

French, Dutch, or Finnish, some characters are
displayed in a different but similar font.

To record planning metadata together with clips,
it is necessary to load a planning metadata file
into the camcorder’s memory in advance.
There are two ways to load files.
• Load a file (.xml) stored under the directory of

“BPAV/General/Sony/Planning” on an SxS
memory card.

• When a Wi-Fi connection is made between the

camcorder and a computer, operate the Web
menu built into the camcorder from the
computer to transfer a file.

For details on how to use the Web menu to load a
planning metadata file, refer to the Supplement in the
supplied CD-ROM labeled “Manuals for Solid-State
Memory Camcorder”.
