My Adobe Prelude CC (which I've just started using) automatically creates XMP files on every image file I download from memory cards (still RAW images as well as .MOV video files). It just spawns them into whatever folder I initially download the original files to.

I can't locate a selection or switch in Prelude to turn that function off, and a Google search has been fruitless.

Can anyone help?

Why are you using Prelude? If you look at Adobe's description of it, they say it's mainly for tagging files to prepare for Premiere. It seems like it's always going to create external files to store data on photos that can't be written as metadata. Bridge might be what you need, if you're looking more for file management.

Even Bridge will create an XMP for every RAW file that you view, since ACR needs one to be able to render the default conversion. Bridge only uses the built in preview in the time between opening the folder, and rendering it's own preview. I had a quick look at Prelude, i had downloaded it but not tried it yet, and considering what the program seems to be for, its pretty much going to have to create something to store the necessary information about each file. It could do it in a project file, but that would then limit the usefulness of the data. By creating individual XMP files the Prelude metadata is instantly available to all of the applications in the CC Suite.

When I've used Bridge, I didn't find it writing XMP files for every RAW file. It is like ACR in that a XMP file is not written if all you're doing is previewing. I also have the Canon plugin for being able to preview RAWs in Windows file manager. If you make adjustments, then the software has to save those adjustments in an XMP file. Seems like Prelude is more for generating a project folder with files that you'll use for a project: not offloading all files from a memory card.

Yeah, I wanted to see what Prelude could do for me, but I haven't had a chance to try it yet. I'm thinking that with my quite simple video productions (I ain't editing "Avatar"), I may not need it at all.
