LR4 and geotagging of non-dng raw files
Mar 10, 2012

I'm trying to manually add GPS data to my original .pef files that are already part of a LR4 catalog. LR4 doesn't support adding gps data to my original .pef files, just xmp side car files.

I've found another tool that adds gps data directly to my .pef files: GeoSetter. After embedding gps data into my .pef files using GeoSetter, I tried to synchronize the folder containing the files in the catalog using "synchronize" in LR4 with enabled option "metadata that changed". I ended up with an automatic update of gps data from the .jpg files, but not from the .pef files. This happened with different options in GeoSetter concerning file date- and time-settings.

Does anybody know the criterion (algorithm) of LR4 for searching for metadata changes in files when using the "synchronize" function? Maybe this is a bug because it works for .jpg but not for .pef files?
