ARRI Meta Extract (AME)

The reference tool for reading ARRI camera Metadata.

 ARRI`s digital cameras can acquire metadata during recording. Metadata not only describes the file itself but can transport 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 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 is available as a GUI (graphical user interface) for Mac OS X, Windows x64, Ubuntu or CMD (command line) application for Mac OS X, Windows x64, Cent OS, Ubuntu and SLES.

New features of AME 4.0 Beta

  • Metadata extraction for CODEX HDE format (High Density Encoding)
    Checks HDE packed .arx data with CRC checksum.
  • New output format XMP
    The AME GUI version can be used to extract metadata in XMP *.xml format.
  • Creation of 3D LUT formats with OpenColorIO (OCIO)
    No further Python dependencies.

Please read AME Release Notes for important information or changes.
