Automatic markers in FCP

Are there a way where FCP automatically can place markers at the beginning/end of every sequence in a timeline ?

If it's any help I'm using Butler macros to do a similar thing.

I have 2 sequences open - SOURCE: synced interview and DEST: quote selects sequence

I mark in and out on the source sequence and have Butler do macro 1:

Save (CMD-S) (so I can easily undo!)
Go to Out, Add Edit (Shift O, CTL v)
Go to In, Add Edit (Shift I, CTL v)
Mark Clip (x)
Select between Marks (alt-a)
Add marker and edit (m,m)


Then I enter some details in the marker and run a 2nd macro

Enter
Go to Out (down arrow)
Extend marker (alt - `)
Copy (it's still selected above) (CMD-C)
Switch to other sequence (Shift CMD ])
Go to end of sequence (END)
Paste(CMD-v)
Clear Marks, Clear Selection (Alt-x, Shift-alt-a)
Switch back to source sequence (Shift CMD [)
Clear Marks, Clear Selection (Alt-x, Shift-alt-a)

Now ready for next quote to be marked.
Sounds convoluted, but it's actually pretty slick and I can see the sections of interview in the source sequences that have already been used.

Hmm, I don't know Butler, where can I find that ?

The existing workflow is a a lot of videotrailer there are places in one timeline, where the speak are placed individual to each trailer in one long string.
After that the individual trailer are going to be compressed, so if we automatically could have the trailers marked with markers, we could make subsequences and then compress them very easy.
