Skipping ingest of INDEX.BDM, MOVIEOBJ.BDM
« on: December 07, 2013, 02:54:01 PM »
When ingesting from cards used in Sony cameras these files are also ingested.  How do I get Photo Mechanic to ignore them?

You can't modify what PM ingests.  Are these files unneeded?  Are they not useful in any way?  What are they used for?

Apparently they are "Disc information file created by AVHCD video recordings; contains information about the file contents in a specific directory; commonly seen as index.bdm and movieobj.bdm; located in the AVCHD/BDMV directory of a media storage device."   They are created when the card is formatted.  I don't need them since I don't use the video mode.

Since I get Photo Mechanic to put my ingested files into folders that contain the date that the picture was taken, I get folders containing only these files named with the date that the card was formatted.  They are a pain, because they need admin permissions to delete and can't seem to be deleted over the network.
