I can’t seem to get color class tags or ratings to transfer between Photomechanic and Lightroom. The two weird things about this are:

1. I do this kind of thing all the time, because I edit for other photographers, and the color tags and ratings transfer just fine with all of their camera files. It just seems to be a problem with files from my camera.
2. I used to not have this problem with my camera files. This issue has only been within the last few months.

I’m running Photo Mechanic Version 5.0, build 19749 (20d085a) on my Intel Based 2016 MacBook Pro with MacOS Mojave 10.14 and I have LR Classic 8.3.1 release. My camera is a Canon 5D Mark III.

I have also followed all of the instructions in this Photomechanic forum thread:

To no avail. I do not have metadata presets turned on, which this person ^ stated was the issue that fixed their problem.
