Hello,

Is there a way to create and write your own custom fields in an EXR's metadata? I get a lot of info from the metadata when I read the frames into nuke, and I would like to insert things such as timecode and camera info into my own custom metadata fields.

photoshop lets you edit the IPTC and other metadata but I can't seem to get anything to show up in Nuke.

Yeah, the EXR fields are a little different. If you do an EXR render in Maya, when you load the images into Nuke, drop a ReadMetaData node into the stream and you can see the field list. I would like to add my own info to this list at rendertime from Maya.
