Video Captions

When I export, move or even copy videos in LightRoom Classic CC, captions are lost. Any ideas?

Lightroom's video export is very basic. It fails to write captions or other metadata which has been entered in LR or was written into the original video before it was imported.

In LR you can create a JPEG from the original video (the Capture Frame command) as it will be created with the metadata embedded. In Bridge you can then sync to the final video.

Yes, it's messy. LR's support for video is pretty weak, which seems surprising as every DSLR and phone can capture it, and with Bridge there isn't the same limitation.
