I am writing a DWT in which i need to read metadata of multimedia component added in a component. following is the component structure.

<content>
   <level1>
      <level2>
            <image>
      </level2>
      <level2>
           <image>
      </level2>
  </level1>
  <level1>
     <level2>
         <image>
     </level2>
     <level2>
        <image>
     </level2>
  </level1>
</content>

Here Level1 is a multi valued embedded schema . Level2 is also a multi valued embedded schema.

I am able to retrieve image tcm id as below. But I am unable to read metadata of the image.

<!-- TemplateBeginRepeat name="Level1" -->
    <!-- TemplateBeginRepeat name="Field.Level2" -->
           @@Field.Image@@
    <!-- TemplateEndRepeat -->
<!-- TemplateEndRepeat -->

I tried the below options to read altText field in metadata. @@Field.Image.altText@@ @@Get('Field.Image.altText')@@

Please help.

Try using @@Field.Image.MetaData.altText@@.

@@Field.Image@@ gets you the Image Component. Once you have the Component, use the MetaData property to read any associated metadata.

Below is what the SDL Docs say:

Component.MetaData.<FieldName>
The value of a metadata field of the Component called (only use this construction if you have a metadata field called Title, Name or ID, or if you have a metadata field with the same name as a data field).

Check below, the various properties including MetaData.
