ARRI’s digital cameras are capable of acquiring metadata during recording a take. Metadata not only describes the file itself but is capable of transporting other information like details on the camera settings, sensor speed or a look file. These static types of metadata can be combined with dynamic metadata where the values change while shooting – like lens data information from the Lens Data System.

The complete metadata information, static and dynamic is stored in ALEXA or AMIRA output formats: ARRIRAW, MXF/ARRIRAW, ProRes and DNxHD. Also the sidecar files *.ale and *.xml carry some of that information.

ARRI META Extract 3.4.5 features new ALEXA SXT recording formats, ALF-2 support for ALEXA SXT and support of new metadata fields from the ALEXA Mini camera.

The tool is available as a GUI (graphical user interface) or CMD (command line) application for Mac OS X and Windows x64.

For questions or help using these tools send an e-mail to digitalworkflow@arri.de. Our Workflow Group will address your concern.
