XMP Sidecar - Adobe Lightroom CC

Hi there!

I want to import the color labels, i added during the culling process into lightroom cc. But it doesn't work,
In Lightroom, if i right click on a single or multiple pictures and select "load metadata from file" nothing happens. :(

The strange thing tough, if i give the pictures star ratings in FastRawviewer it works that way.

I use the latest Version of FastRawViewer ( FastRawViewer- @ OSX 10.10


Please make sure that you use similar 'Label style' in both Lightroom and FastRawViewer

Lightroom setting: Menu - Metadata - Color label set

FRV: Preferences - XMP - Color label style (http://www.fastrawviewer.com/sites/fastrawviewer.com/files/Prefs-5_1.png )

No it did not help?

Can it be a problem, i use Lightroom in German Language.

XMP labels are stored in text in XMP-sidecar, like this one:          <xmp:Label>Green</xmp:Label>

I do not know how it looks in German Lr, it is probably german words.

The easiest way to go is to use Custom labels in Lr by Menu - Metadata - Color Label set - Edit and set English text for each color (Red, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple).

Or similar change in FRV:  Preferences  - XMP - XMP Label style - Custom and write German words same as Lightroom/german words for color labels

I am having the same problem.  Bridge reads the xmp files fine, but Lightroom ignores the xmp file from FRV.
I have checked the settings in LR and FRV.

1) If your raw file is already in Lightroom catalog, use Menu - Metadata - read metadata in lightroom to refresh from XMP sidecars.

2) If Lr reads ratings, but not labels, you may need to use custom XMP labels in FRV. Use same text as set in Lightroom

3) If you set ratings/labels in FRV on memory card storage, you need to transfer files (RAW+XMP) from flash card to HDD. For some (unknown) reason, Lr ignores XMP files on memory cards
