Exporting Clips and Metadata for the COPRA Dailies System

Silverstack Lab can provide transcoded clips as well as metadata from its library in a compatible format for the COPRA Dailies System. In Silverstack Lab you can export an XML file that accompanies the transcoded clips from Silverstack Lab and provides extended metadata. The proxy clips can then be uploaded together with the XML to the COPRA platform where the additional metadata is then visible.

There are two ways in Silverstack Lab to export a COPRA compatible metadata XML file:

  • The automatic metadata export as part of the transcoding configuration can be set to automatically export a COPRA xml after the transcoding job finishes and the transcoded clips are reingested into the library
  • The manual export can be reached from the “Export” menu in the toolbar and in the context menu of the bin. It allows to manually trigger the export for the xml for the bin with already transcoded clips in the library

Exporting a COPRA Compatible XML with the Automatic Metadata Export Option

The metadata export option allows to automatically create a companion metadata file when a selected transcoding configuration is used for transcoding clips.

You can learn more about Transcoding in Silverstack Lab in the equally titled article.

To set the COPRA Dailies System as target application for the automatic metadata export, first go to the transcoding configurations tab of the right sidebar. Select the transcoding configuration from the list that you would like the export to happen for.

Scroll down to the “Metadata Export” section. Select “COPRA Dailies System” and press the “Configure…” button to select its content.

When now transcoding to the adapted configuration you selected the metadata export for, the COPRA XML is automatically exported to the same folder as the clips after the job finishes and the transcoded clips are automatically ingested into the “Transcoded Clips” folder of the library.

Manual Export of a COPRA Compatible XML

To manually export a COPRA Compatible XML select the intended bin inside the “Transcoded Clips” folder and choose “COPRA Dailies System” from the “Export” menu:

The wizard leads you through the source selection (to select the clips that should be part of the XML) and the content selection (which metadata should be part of the XML).

Click the “Save COPRA XML..” button to export the xml to the intended directory.
