930 - DateTime Original is not used by Rescan Folders or Read Tags from File


Recommended Posts



when I change the "Creation DateTime" in the Properties Panel the Metadata "DateTime Original" in the file is adjusted.

I did the same with the ExifTool but neither Rescan Folders nor Read Tags from File reads the adjusted data. Not even a restart of the client or the database helps.

So it seems that Daminion doesn't use the metadata DateTime Original in theses actions.

Hi Murat,


yes, it is changed to the date and time of the adjustment by the ExifTool. The video (Daminion_930_DateTimeOriginal.wmv) is in my FTP folder.

Update: I've removed the adjusted item from catalog. Then I imported it again by rescan folders. Also in this case the DateTime Original is not used by Daminion.

What metadata date does Daminion use?

I used this ExifTool command:


Now I get the adjusted date and time. Conclusion: Daminion uses either the Exif Create Date or the XMP DateCreated
