Color Class in CNX2
« on: July 31, 2013, 05:46:24 AM »
Running PM5 build 13915 in Win7Pro. Using Nikon Capture NX 2 v 2.4.3.

It's been a while since I used CNX's browse window, but I needed to batch process some file in a folder. I used PM to set the Color class on the images that I wanted to use to one color. However, when I look at the folder in CNX, none of the color tags shows up, and filtering on the color class yields no results. Oddly, if I star rate the images in PM, that does work as a filter in CNX.

As I said, it's been a while since I tried this, but it used to work just fine.

Attached are my PM IPTC/XMP setttings.

Any ideas?

I believe you have to force the synchronization of the IPTC Urgency field (in the General Preferences) for CNX/CNX2 to notice color classes.
