Delete on XMP tag from Daminion
« on: March 31, 2020, 11:54:00 AM »

can anybody help?
I use Daminion. In Daminion I have delete one "custom tag" called "Gebaute__stuckzahl".  Daminion deletes this tag only in his database, not in the files.
Now I tried to delete this tag from the files with this command

exiftool -XMP-daminion:Gebaute__stuckzahl file

This command only list the tag and his value, no delete.

Whats wrong?

Your command is only telling exiftool to list the tag, not delete it.

But even so, exiftool can't delete that tag by itself because exiftool doesn't have definitions for any XMP-daminion tags.  Especially custom tags.  You could delete all the Daminion tags with
exiftool -XMP-daminion:all= <FileOrDir>
but not individual tags.

Previous thread on Daminion tags.
Troubleshooting hints:
* When posting, include your OS, Exiftool version, and type of file you're processing (MP4, JPG, etc).
* Double all percent signs (%) in a Windows batch file.
* If your GPS coords are negative, make sure and set the GpsLatitudeRef and GpsLongitudeRef tags correctly.

Thank you. Delete all xmp-daminion tags is ok, because in daminion catalog are all tags and so I can write the tags to the file after deleting.
And so I have delete this one tag only.
