Searching event markers
on Feb 29, 2012 at 8:46:03 pm

Hi all,

I'm working with fairly long clips with many points that I want to tag. I'd rather not use sub-clips. I'm happier adding Event Markers, but there's something about them I'm not getting. So I add an event marker and type in a description. The result is that when I search for one of the words used in that description, CatDV displays the relevant clip. But if I have 150 event markers on that clip, I really need the search result to highlight the exact event marker(s) matching the query. Otherwise I'm forced to scroll down through my list of 150 descriptions to find the match.

Any thoughts welcome...

thanks,

Lisa.

This has been "on the list" forever. I'm pretty sure it's not been implemented due to the structure of CatDV. Markers aren't "assets" so they cannot be called directly from a query.

Could someone from Squarebox speak to this directly in case I'm out of line on this?

The problem is it might complicate the user interface... are you selecting clips or markers or a mix of both? The good news is there's probably another way to highlight the results: use the clip summary toolbar button or HTML summary tab. This lists all your main metadata fields and event markers for the current clip and highlights the current search term wherever it occurs in the text.
