P: (Local Mode) real time metadata updates from Photo Mechanic

Hi,

 

I'm using Lightroom (not Classic) on Windows 11 with Photo Mechanic.

 

When I update metadata in PM, for example a star rating the change is not reflected in LR.

 

I've checked the xmp file and it's being correctly updated.

 

I've tried clearing the LR cache.

 

If I make an update in LR then PM sees it without issue.

 

If I restart LR then the correct metadata is displayed.

 

Is there a way for LR to automatically watch xmp files or at least perform a re-read if the image is selected?

 

Thanks.

Assuming you are talking about the Local Mode in Lightroom, I'm not aware of any way (automatically or manually) to get Lightroom to re-read the metadata after the image is initially loaded. If nobody else can offer a way, perhaps you should convert this discussion to an "Idea".
