Howto edit XMP Metadata of multiple HEIC photos at once ?

Post by xnview-tom »

normally I am using my mac but HEIC metadataediting support is known to be done. Win10 should work.
So I tried my Win10 machine which has HEVC and HEIF installed, although not needed for XnViewMP
XnViewMP 1.6.4 fresh install, tried 1.63 as well

But multiple editing HEIC metadata as I am doing with jpeg not possible. Looking through forum issues I could not find a solution.

Metadata-> XMP edit is grayed out - cf. screenshot with HEIC photo being selected

- editing metadata of multiple jpeg files is possible
- editing metadata of a single HEIC file is possible
- heif.dll exist - comes with install
- heic write support confirmed

- jpeg export to .heic is not possible - cf. screenshots
- jpeg batch convert to heic is possible

What is recommended workflow to edit metadata of multiple HEIC files ?

Thanx for help
