Where Do XMP files go when you have DNG
« on: March 06, 2007, 04:34:57 PM »

To clean up some things, I exported all of the files from a folder into DNG. They were a mixed bag of JPEG, TIF, RAW, and DNG. All went well, but now my question is, where does LR put any future changes that would have been put in XMP files? Does the system still write to XMP? Or does it write the data directly into the DNG files? I looked hither and yon and could not discover the answer.

By default LR will write all metadata to it's database and not the file. You can set it to write the metadata to the files in real-time but that slows things down quite a bit.

When you export the metadata it is embedded into the DNG file. You can also embed it into  dng files that are still in the database by going to "Metadata > XMP > Export XMP metadata to File"
