Join Abba Shapiro for an in-depth discussion in this video Using markers, part of Migrating from Final Cut Pro 7 to Final Cut Pro X (2011).
Now working with markers in Final Cut Pro X is different than working with…markers in Final Cut Pro 7, because you no longer can make markers to export to…DVD Studio Pro, or compression markers, or markers for Soundtrack Pro.…And of course, since you're working with a dynamic timeline with connected clips, …putting markers on a timeline isn't appropriate either.…However, markers can still be really useful in Final Cut Pro X. Let's step into…the Markers project and take a look how to best use them.…Now if I want to put a marker on a clip, I can just skim over to the spot where…I want to place the marker.…
For instance, I may want to make a note to myself that I'm starting the still…image montage at this point.…Just like in Final Cut Pro 7, if I hit the M key, it creates a marker.…Now I want you to make note of something.…Nothing was selected in my timeline, so by default it put that marker on…the main storyline.…If I wanted to put a marker on say the audio track or a connected clip, I need…to select that clip first and it will put the marker wherever the skimmer is…
