I used bridge to embed meta-data in a video file. Both Adobestock and POND5 correctly interpreted the meta-data (descriptions and keywords). However, Shutterstock seemed to ignore the embedded meta-data. Anyone happen to know why?...am I doing something wrong?
I used Davinci Resolve to generate the file. This is on a PC platform.

Shutterstock has never transferred metadata for me when uploading clips, images are not an issue though.
Also, keep in mind that Bridge replaces all commas , with semicolons ;
Now as far as I can remember Shutterstock had no issues with this but I reckon there has been a change recently and now it removes all keywords, probably because it sees it as one big keyword.
I use a copy/paste on a text file and then auto replace the semicolons back to commas.

Interesting side note regarding video meta-data and Lightroom. Maybe this is common knowledge, but I discovered by accident that LR will read and display video metadata from a video, but of course cannot write metadata to a video file.
