Question: How to embed location data directly to NEF RAW using ViewNX-i

Hello,

I am trying to correct existing location data as well as add missing location data to my NEF RAW files. I first attempted this in Lightroom but by design (and understandably) the updates are held in the XMP sidecar file and not applied directly to the NEF file.

I then installed Nikon ViewNX-i expecting that it would apply the changes directly to the RAW file, however after making a bunch of updates I see that the last modified date on the files themselves haven't changed and that these changes also seem to be held in a sidecar file (NKSC).

Does anyone know if it's possible with ViewNX-i to update the actual NEF RAW file itself so that when I import them into other applications the updated/added location data is included?

I'd prefer to avoid third party tools (non Nikon), but am not opposed to recommendations if ViewNX-i can't do it.

Thank you!
