Mp3tag Version: 2.33a



I am converting my music CD's to MP3 using EAC and LAME. I am editing/adding ID3 information using Mp3tag v 2.33a. The commandline for LAME defined in EAC is

-V 2 --vbr-new --add-id3v2 --pad-id3v2 --ta "%a" --tt "%t" --tl "%g" --ty "%y" --tn "%n" %s %d

When opening the files in Mp3tag, I see the following in the left pane:
Title; Artist; Album; Year; Track; Genre; Comment; Folder

These seem to be ID3v1 fields. Looking at the file information in Winamp shows additional ID3v2 fields:
Composer; Original artist; Copyright; URL; Encoded by

My questions are:

1. How can I view (and edit) the ID3v2 information, that is being written into the mp3 files by LAME, by Mp3tag?

2. I would like to add the following information to each file:
Movie; Composer; Lyricist;
How do I do that and have Mp3tag show me these fields in the left pane?

Background: Most of my CD's are compilations, so each file has a separate singer, movie, composer, lyricist in addition to having a common Album information. Presently, I'm adding this in the comment field. I would like to have them in their own ID3v2 fields, if possible.

Thanks.

Thank you. It is a bit complicated for a beginner like me, but this is how I have set up the program:

I added 2 columns:

Name: Lyricist; Value: %lyricist%; Field: LYRICIST
Name: Composer; Value: %Composer%; Field: COMPOSER

For each song, I select the song and open the Tags (Alt-T) and add these two fields from the drop-down list.

I could not find a suitable field for the name of the Movie, so I am using the Comment field for that.

Am I doing this correctly?

Is typing in text into the columns directly the same as the Alt-T and then entering the information there?

Thanks.

I think Field: should also be with % signs -> %lyricist%
But your version seems to work, too.

Yes.
