Sounds like an improvement :)  Though I wish the "title" would be the title...

That's great! I expect this from every other agency. I'm not a specialist but it doesn't seem so hard to me.

I also wish that the Title was the Title and not the Description.

I have good news for video content providers. Fotolia has just been updated so the system will read embedded keywords (the keywords that you add through software programs such as Bridge and Premiere) in your uploaded video clips. In addition, the system will read the "description" metadata and will add this as the title of the clip in the indexing tool. This should speed the submission process up for you considerably. We are working hard to create new tools to make uploading new content to Fotolia and Adobe Stock a seamless process so stay tuned!

Brilliant, thanks Mat. Great move in the right direction.

I noticed that was working for 1080 video. Thanks, it is a big time saver.

I produce 90% 4K video and it would be great if there was the same ability there.

That's nice. Maybe you can now make uploading easier for illustrators? You have THE most difficult upload process for vectors. You are the last site I upload to, and only when I have downtime and feel like I can handle the irritation of putting everything in a folder, labeling the folder, compressing the folder, and adding one folder at a time. I'd have thousands of images on your site now instead of hundreds if it wasn't for your uploading process.

Interesting feature, but it has no use for me. What we really need is the ability to upload csv or xls files with metadata.

All the other agencies can process metadata from CSV or Excel, thats why I write my metadata in that format. To use the Fotolia's feature, I would need to write my metadata not in Excel, but in FCPX and that is before exporting.

Good lord, no.  Am I the only one that doesn't want to keep data in a text file correlated with video file names?  You don't do it for photos, why for video?

Is that on a Mac? I'm on Windows and you just select the eps and jpegs and right click choosing "Send to zipped folder". Fotolia is one of the easiest for me.

Perhaps I'm misunderstanding your post but the info is embedded in the video file the same as an image is

Yes, Mac. ft is the only site I submit to that requires files in a zipped folder. everyone else takes the files separately.

I submit to a few so no extra hassle. I can understand it being a pita if it is the only site and the zip process is trickier on a mac.

Responding to Harvepino who wants an external csv or excel file with data.

Ah right. And I agree with you.

Yes, it would be nice if metadata could be appended to videos like to photos. But currently it cant be done, not in a way we need it. For example at P5 I want to fill in all details like location, country, camera used, audio yes/no, etc. I think such information might be useful for buyers, but there is nowhere in fcpx where I can fill in such info. Simple spreadsheet is flexible, add any field you want. Also possible to fill in categories for SS and some other specific fields for smaller agencies... this cant be done within a video editing software. So I see no real benefit in filling in description and keywords in fcpx when I will have to append all the other bits of info for other agencies in excel anyway. If there is a better workflow without any need for csv files, I'll gladly hear it and will happily ditch my spreadsheets immidiately :)
