Import a CSV File from Drylab Set Report 3 into Silverstack
First select the folder or bin in the library that you want to import metadata for.
Then, in the “Import” menu button in the toolbar select the option Drylab CSV:
When the Finder dialog points you to select a file, choose the CSV file exported from Drylab SetReport and select “Open”.
There are two options to match the events in the CSV to the clips in the library:
- by Clip Name
- by Creation Date
Matching by Clip Name
Enabling the Clip Name option, looks for a match between the “filenameBase” column in the CSV and the Video Clip Name (Library Clip Name) in the Silverstack library.
The pop up menu on the right side of the checkbox offers the option to take only a certain amount of characters of the clip names into account for matching.
Matching by Creation Date (Time of Day)
Enabling the Creation Date option, looks for a match between the “createdAt” column in the CSV and the Shooting/Recording Date (Library Clip Name) in the Silverstack library.
- Date&Time with tolerance: You can adjust a slider to set the desired tolerance for the matching by Creation Date
- Date only: Matches the clips by the date only and neglects the time part of the timestamp
The matches are displayed in the table of clips with a blue checkbox. The left side shows the Silverstack library clip name event and the right side the event from the Set Report csv.
As soon as you obtained a proper matching, click “Continue”.
