Keeping the original time-date stamp of video files
« on: May 23, 2020, 06:33:53 AM »
I use the command line syntax

exiftool -rotation=90 file.mp4

to rotate a file.

Is there a way I can keep the original time date stamps ( eg. creation date, modified date ) etc., these are important as I use them to sort the time sequence of my video files.

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.

Thanks StarGeek.  Works like a charm, just have to ensure I used -P not -p ( case-sensitive )....haha.   Forgotten all my Unix syntax sensibilities. haha.  Back to the good old UNIX days of 30 years ago.
