query movie metadata to evaluate in action

Question

Hi

not sure if this is somthing already planned for the future.

But is there a way to evaluate some metadata fields / variables of the selected movie file in a action script ?

For example I would like to extract the movie aspect ratio, and trigger the motors which control the screen masking and projector zooms if movie is in 21:9  :D

My Hue lights already work perfect, so this would turn the cinema near perfection...

Thanks a lot for your valuable addon!

regards

The good news is, this feature is planned in this round of development. We're also reworking the Sequence engine to allow you to play a specific Sequence based on metadata like genre, rating, etc. With both of those changes combined, you should be able to get insanely granular with your set up. :)

The bad(?)/other news is, I'm not sure what will be available to us yet. I'll keep you in mind to test that feature and let you know what's possible with the metadata we can pull from.

heck, that's great to know! Thanks for your efforts!

This would enable some comfortable tasks and I'll be excited to test this. But first anyway, I need to install all the components properly and get control communication being stable :/ 

By the way, just updated to K17 and saw that CV still works fine. ?
