Custom Fields in Info panel

Postby duarte.framos » Tue Jul 19, 2016 1:40 pm

Short Version :

Is it possible to add custom EXIF/IPTC fields to isplay in the XNViewMP info panel under View > Show Information ?
If so how can I do it and how do I know the name of the fields in question?

Long Version :
I have lots of images rendered in Blender and a few versions back Blender added the option to save metadata pertaining to settings and render statistics into the image file metadata which is extremely convenient.

So is there a way to show this custom information directly in the View > Show Information panel?
IF so, how can I know what markup to add, and the name of said field?

I have been successful in adding it for JPEG files under Tools > Settings > View > Info > Information Displayed which happen to use a series of custom Comment fields for it using

Code: Select all

{File Index} | {Filename With Ext} | {Format}
{Width} x {Height} | {Size}
Taken: {EXIF:Date Taken [d b Y]} at {EXIF:Date Taken [H:M:S]}
With a {EXIF:Make} {EXIF:Model}
{Comment}


See attached screenshot for the JPG file properties and result. They do show all garbled up though, all in a single line stuck together.
For PNG files I have not been successful in determining the correct markup (if any) to display those fields like 'Render Time' or 'File' .
See attached file to see the name of the fields.

So to sum it up
    How can I display those custom fields in te info panel? and if so how to determine the correct markup for a any random field?
    Is it possible to show each JPEG comment on separated or in a different line?

Ah what a shame, that would have been great! Anyway, thanks for the answer, at least I won't spend any more time trying to accomplish it in vain. :)

Maybe in some future version perhaps... Thanks for the quick reply

Hum, that could work but I am not totally sure what you mean. Could you point me in the right direction?

Do you have any tutorial on how to accomplish that, or perhaps a link to some documentation about that feature?
Is that under browse mode or view mode? I don't really know where to start

it's only a question for a todo feature. So my question is "is it good if i add a section for custom fields" like Composite?

Ah sorry didn't quite get what you meant.
Yes a custom section would be fine, though a quick way to also access this information while in view mode would be most convenient.

Thanks for adding it to the to-do list :D

Hi, all. I'm incompetent at scripting but I've been having fun creating a Custom Info Panel in Adobe Bridge thanks to this thread: Custom Info Panel as Bridge MetaData Panel. This is a project to remodel some keep to a rather large photo p.s. At some narrowing in the p.s. an external contractor got on the subject of some nervousness (now forgotten) by creating a custom metadata schema to track some specific needs of the client. Going attend to we'll be keeping everything within the bounds of IPTC within sufficient limits fields, but for the tidy happening, it would be in fact helpful to display the custom fields neighboring to IPTC fields in the Info Panel. When I see the XMP list of raw data for an existing image I can see the relevant fields listed in the publicizing of this:
<CR_1_:BBCCompliance>False</CR_1_:BBCCompliance>
<CR_1_:Campaign>1985-2003</CR_1_:Campaign>
<CR_1_:Exclusive>False</CR_1_:Exclusive>

If I understood this, I'm using Fastphototagger freeware for this purpose, I can display any exif, iptc,xmp, mwg fields.
Field names are shown ("show all metdata"), and can be easily added in main window.
