With the 32bit QT API for macOS nearing the end of the road, and AVFoundation's limited Mac only abilities, we could use a future proof way of editing QT metadata.  The current options: FCP7, QTChange and Digital Rebellions's tools all require 32bit QT.

Our workflow would benefit from both destructive and new file methods of modifying the QT reel/tape metadata.  The same metadata read by FCP7/10, Pr, and Resolve.  This is the original TCSource metadata that is the name of the TC track.  It would also be useful to add and modify the newer studio.reel type of metadata that allows custom entries.  The ability to batch modify files is what we'd need.

This has been requested a number of times.  we are considering a new tab that would consolidate the currently supported destructive/newfile metadata edits for both MOV and MXF as well as adding support for other fields.

Yes, this is a must feature. 

Things like: colr atom, filed order, aspect ratio. Then audio tracks tagging, chapters, edit atom, as well as all metadata fields (comment, etc.) are so useful.

I would love to see this in API.
