Working with Metadata in QuickTime Media

Final Cut Pro allows you to add, store, and remove metadata elements within QuickTime movie files. Any metadata stored in a QuickTime movie that Final Cut Pro uses is:

Metadata is also cached within Final Cut Pro project elements so that it is still available via the Final Cut Pro XML Interchange Format when a media file is offline. After adding or changing metadata within Final Cut Pro project elements, you can update metadata in the corresponding QuickTime media files using the Reconnect Media command.

Note: Although QuickTime metadata can be stored in a QuickTime media file and cached in a Final Cut Pro project, custom metadata is not directly accessible within Final Cut Pro windows such as the Browser or the Item Properties window.
