I am dragging a marker to a bin and the name changes to the title of the clip where it came from. Why is it doing that?

I have an interview that I marked up with markers. I then dragged them to a bin to create subclips, but most of the clips have lost the names they should have - the name of the marker - and instead have taken the name of the larger clip that they come from. This is not true of every marker. anyone know why this is happening?

There's no need to do that Noam. Every time you place a marker on a clip it automatically creates a twirl-down arrow under the clip in the browser and puts a log item marker there for each one you create. And, you can annotate those marker log items in the browser as you wish.

The question is, did you place the marker on the timeline or on the clip itself? They work very differently.

I did it on the clip itself in the viewer. This was working perfectly fine a month ago. I feel like I must have changed some preference.

Again, the problem is that now, when I'm making subclips of extended markers, the created subclips dont have the marker name but are just listed as a generic subclip of the larger clip, as if i just made a subclip by placing ins and outs in the master clip and didnt give it a name. This happens whether I drag them or keystroke them into subclips. They should have the marker name.

Your original post was about markers, now you lost me when you mentioned subclips. Typically one uses markers or subclips, but not both. Maybe you should start at the top Noam and state exactly what your workflow is and what you're trying to achieve.

Cool. So, in my workflow, I ingest whole clips and then log them by using extended markers on the clips. So, these are clip markers and not timeline markers.

I color code the markers and make subclips out of the markers I like, markers that extend for a whole short bit I want to capture.

For months, it was working fine that when I drag the markers into another folder, the subclips would automatically get the name of the marker whence they came. But, lately that's stopped working and now they just get a generic name like "12/4 Subclip 1"

I dont know why this started happening. But it has. And it's a problem. Does that make sense? I hope so. I could explain again if it doesnt.

Thanks for being so helpful David.

For what it's worth, I ran Repair Disc and Repair Disc Permissions on the HD with FCP. The problem still continues. I'm considering reinstalling the program. That will be a bit of a pain, but making subclips out of markers and having these subclips take the name of the marker is the crux of my logging workflow. Grr.....

Would running some other program on my HD possibly make a difference?
