can I copy metadata field from one clip to the multiple clips quickly

Copy link to clipboard

Copied

If I remember correctly, in fcp7 you could select a description or label or whatever in a bin and hit copy and then select multiple clips and paste the description or label or whatever to all the selected clips.  Can't seem to figure out if this is possible in premiere 15.    It's possible I'm having a senior moment.    Is this something you do in the metadata panel?  

 

Figured it out...  I decided to dig in to the premiere manual (such as it is) before posting the question.  The version I have was last updated in 2019...

 

And when I searched for "metadata" I saw references to the metadata panel.  But no help.

but I decided to investigate the metadata panel.  Couldn't do it for premiere pro project metadata, but found I could do it for "dynamic media" and can choose to display that field in my bin.   I searched that in the manual and and found it had something to do with xmp metadata.  I'm guessing that's stored somewhere external to the premiere project?  

 

and if there's a way to do what I originally asked,,,  let me know

 

thanks as always

and just batch renamed the tape name field in another bin... and premiere crashed.  which although I'm using an underpowered 2012 macbookpro, rarely happens.
