Re: Marker info disappears! by Angelo Lorenzo on Dec 26, 2012 at 7:54:53 am
Lets say you have:
and you merge them and end up with an automatically named
Vid1.mov - merged
What you may not have noticed is that if you add a marker to the original clip in the bin (Vid1.mov in this example) is that you have access to read those markers and title/comments in the merged clip. This is assuming you have some kind of scratch audio on your original video which would allow you to log in this manner. Annoying but hardly a showstopper, and shouldn't really increase your workload or tun-around time.
Concerning XML and merged clips, I think CS6 fixes some issues. I was able to take an XML from Premiere with merged clips and relink it in Final Cut Pro 7 and everything relinked fine. Even right clicking the audio portion of clip in the timeline and selecting "reveal in finder" finds the proper audio source file. They're treated like nested timelines in the bin, but seem to be master clips in the timeline... weird translation but it works.
The one huge speedbump that still remains, if I recall correctly, is how Premiere handles multi-cam exports.
It is really quite a big setback when you're editing a documentary. Being able to organize material and tag clips and add descriptions is an absolute must. So yes, this is a major setback for my process.
