Can't enter "Camera Label" or "Camera Angle" info in Metadata (boxes "grayed" out)

hey there Adobe community.

I've imported some ProRes clips from a 2-camera multicamera shoot (Shot on Arri Alexa directly to ProRes). I'm trying to create "Camera Labels" for the clips so that Premiere knows the clips are separate angles when I create a Multi-Camera Source Sequence, but even after I've added those columns in my project and clip Metadata view, I cannot edit those columns as they are "Grayed out."

This is a big pain because this means I cannot sync the different cameras into a multicam sequence until I'm able to add this information.

Anyone have ideas on why I can't add this info? Thanks!

Bump. Any help? This is really clogging up my workflow. Seems like it should be pretty straightforward, but I can't figure it out

Are you on a Mac?  If so, this worked for me -- go to the Finder and navigate to the root folder where your ProRes media is.

1) On the root folder, Right-Click > Get Info (or Command+I key)

2) In the dialogue window, make sure the folder permissions (under the Sharing & Permissions tab) are set to "Read & Write"

3) If not, click to open the lock in the bottom-right corner of the window and enter admin credentials to make changes

4) Under the Privilege column, set all rows to "Read & Write"

5) Click drop-down menu next to the tiny gear icon at the bottom, then click "Apply to enclosed items"

6) Toggle back into Premiere and you should be able to enter a "Camera Label" now (if not, reopen or re-import media and try again)

This worked for me -- it's simply a matter of Premiere having the permission to change file info.  Hope this helps.

I don't think that's necessary.  PP will by default treat every clip as a separate angle.  No way to change that.

On a side note, I'm currently tracking down a debilitating bug with the automatic Multicamera creation method.

Multicam Export Error

You might be better off using the manual method below.

I had the same issue and solved it

try to change workspace - i changed to all panels and the option to change the camera label or camera angle in the bin's list of files was enabled then. and didnt work in editing or assembly.

i think it also depends on particular project

but change the workspace to all panels

regards
