When uploading an image into our instance of cascade that will
be used for slideshows etc we are using new/file. Because you can't
assign a Metadata Set to this, we are unable to force users to add
alt-text for images or even make description field be inline. Is
there something I am missing? Currently we are trying out pulling
in the title as the alt-text however this is not ideal as the
alt-text and title may vary.

Could you try setting up a new asset factory of type "file", and
pointing it at a pre-created base asset file that you have which
has the right metadata set?
It is true that the default file asset factory isn't
configurable, but that's true of all of the default asset

Glad to see you got things working. Would you be able to share
your solution in-case others have a similar question?

Needed to create the base asset with a filename extension (.jpg)
so that it would save, then move/rename and delete the extension.
That make sense?
