Double checking: am I right you cannot extend the length of a marker?

I'm 99% sure this came out in the book I read from the library for FCP X. But I wanted to double check...if I make a marker, there is no way to have it extend for a certain length of time on a clip, correct? It only sits on the one moment where I put it. Just making sure.

You are correct. I wish there was a way to define a selection with markers - similar to how chapters work.

What about creating a marker at the start of your section named "My Section Start" and a marker at the end of your section named "My Section End"?

Markers are just a point in the timeline. Otherwise, they wouldn't be markers, they would be sections or chapters, etc...

FCP legacy markers were extendable.

Indeed. I used that a lot. I'm learning to enjoy X but there are just certain things I dont get why you cant do, like that or resize all the windows however you want like you could in 7. Grrr.....

What are you trying to mark? Perhaps a keyword or favorite will do the same thing for you?

It would let me be able to put data on a clip and see the data from the timeline index. I want a way from, in the timeline, to know what I'm looking at. Ideally, I could make subclips and rename them. And I can't do that. So i was hoping I could extend markers. It seems kind of annoying that there is no good way to do that if you have a super long clip with many actions (or an interview) and you cant have a name that describes everything in it.

Currently no way to do that with a range in the timeline AND have it show up in the index.
