Date Taken and Date Modified

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Music, Pictures and Video' started by Fat Freddy's Cat, Mar 22, 2007.

  1. Hi,

    I've got a couple of hundred video clips that I'd like to sort in "date
    taken" order within Windows MovieMaker.
    The problem is the "date taken" attribute in each of them is blank - only
    the "Date modified" attribute details when the clips were shot. Although I
    can sort on this attribute in explorer, I cant in MovieMaker.

    Therefore, I'd like to automatically update the Date Taken attribute with
    the Date Modified attribute for all the files in a batch process, or get
    windows moviemaker to allow me to sort them by date modified...

    Any ideas how I can do this?

    I've got exactly the same problem. Possible solutions might include:

    1. The filename is in date order DDMMYYYY. If I can find some batch
    filename editing software to reverse the date order, than I could order
    by date in Windows Movie Maker.
    2. Find some batch tag editing software that will allow me to copy all
    the tags from date modified to date taken.
    3. An update to Windows Movie Maker that would allow me to include the
    field date taken and order by it.

    Any help would be most appreciated.
