I'm using Final Cut Pro 7. I'm transcribing audio of several interviews for a documentary. We're using 2 cameras. I transcribe the audio of the camera with the main audio using markers. I then sync the camera angles on my sequence.
I then export the markers from the sequence so I have a transcription in .TXT file of my whole interview. I've noticed that when I export markers, in some interviews the markers are in correct chronological order, while other interviews they are not. Sometimes the markers start in the middle of the sequence and then work backward. It's very odd, there doesn't seem to be a pattern.
Is there a way to make sure all markers are exported chronologically starting at timecode 00:00:00;00? Exported markers that aren't in chronological order defeats the purpose of wanting to read through a whole interview from start to finish....
No I haven't found a solution to that original problem. I've moved clips around on the sequence to try to force the markers to export correctly, but nothing. I'm thinking it's a bug. So, I'm forced to to export markers from each clip individually and then organize them into one master .TXT file. A little more time, but order is correct.
