Clip marker problem
on Dec 15, 2011 at 1:53:37 am

Hello All,

I have a problem with markers. I'm using them extensively in clips for annotating a documentary.

I make a marker by pressing m, then m again to load the edit marker pane. I add information to "comments" and click ok.

Until today, the marker and comment would appear in a box when the clip plays over the marker. Now, suddenly, that feature has stopped. The clip plays over the marker and I get no information. I have checked that "show overlays" is checked.

How do I fix this? I'm not sure why it has stopped working. Thanks!

If you place a marker in a clip, it will not show up in the Canvas when that clip is added to a sequence. If you place a marker as a sequence marker it will.

Markers in clips only show up in the Viewer, and they don't ever show during playback. Only during a stop over the marker itself.
