Is there a way to search videos by their duration?

Hi,

I am new to Lightroom. I just made the move from Aperture. I am wondering wether there is a way to search videos by their duration. I'd like to get rid of all my videos that are 3 seconds or shorter. I could do that in Aperture via a smart album, but in Lightroom I can't seem to find a way to even make duration appear in the Filter Bar or the Smart Collection parameters.

Am I oblivious to something or does a Plug-in exist for that?

Many thanks in advance.

I think you'll have to use a plugin. AnyFilter by John Ellis will do what you want:

You can easily find it with a web search.

My Search and Replace plugin allows you to search by duration or any other field.
