Command question
« on: February 14, 2016, 01:54:15 PM »
I want to read the metadata from the photo of a Container File and then sent back. With the Mac-Terminal.
iMac:~ Martin$

exiftool "-overwrite_original -all:all= -tagsfromfile @ -all:all -unsafe -ext jpg -ext JPG -r" /Users/Martin/Desktop/Indonesien 2014 Land.aplibrary/Masters

The Aperture Library is "Indonesien 2014 Land.aplibrary" The photos are in the folder "Masters"

exiftool write
Warning: No matching tags for 'overwrite_original -*:*'
Nothing to do.

You don't want to put quotes around the all of the options like that.  That makes the command line think that everything encased in quotes is a single option.   You do want to put quotes around the path when it has spaces in it.  Since you're on a mac, you probably want to use single quotes instead of double quotes.  Also, the ext option is not case sensitive, so you don't need to duplicate it. 

Try this command
exiftool -overwrite_original -all:all= -tagsfromfile @ -all:all -unsafe -ext jpg -r '/Users/Martin/Desktop/Indonesien 2014 Land.aplibrary/Masters'
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.
