Movie metadata

Postby EUROTECH » Tue Nov 13, 2012 9:01 pm

Is it possible to have the actors arranged by order of importance?
When the actors come up on the movie info page, they are arranged by lastname. Can we get only the main characters? I know that might mean going back and re-doing 1k's worth of movies within content manager to filter out main characters.

That is a major task. We have over 340,000 movies and TV shows in the master database. The source of this data lists all the actors in the movie and not just the important ones. So from the source it is impossible to filter out the noise actors. This is something you'd have to do individually as you add new movies.
