Tutorial 8 - Working with video ► Working with markers

Place the Now Time at the location where you would like a marker, then select Project > Insert Marker or press M.
Click the Insert Marker button in the Control Bar’s Markers module.
Click the Add Marker button in the Markers view.
Next, select the Lock to SMPTE (Real World) Time check box. This option is very important when working with video. If a marker is not locked to SMPTE time, its position in relation to events on the video will change with tempo and meter changes in the project.
You might also notice that the Time value changes to the SMPTE format after you selected the check box. This determines where the location of the marker will be. We know in the video that the sun comes out at about four seconds and ten frames into the video. Let’s set the Time value to 00:00:04:10.
Click OK to insert the marker and close the Marker dialog box. You can place as many markers as you need for a project to sync up all of your events. The Markers view will now display the marker you just created, with the name Intro assigned to it. The Marker view toolbar contains the following commands that apply to selected markers.
Click the Lock/Unlock Marker button to lock or unlock the marker to SMTPE time.
