Split Layer + Divide Markers
on Jan 5, 2013 at 7:00:05 pm

I've done a little looking around, and can't seem to find anything like this existing already. Maybe one of you have come across it?

Let's say I have a VO track I'm timing my animation to, and I've gone through and added a bunch of markers. I get halfway through, and realize I'd like to add 10 frames of space between a section.

So, I split the layer and move the second part down... but now I've got a huge marker mess. Unsightly to look at, confusing, and really clutters up any J/K marker-jumping abilities.

Has anyone seen (or built) a script that will split a layer and divide the markers onto the existing portions? Think this functionality is possible?

Any other suggestions of a more efficient workaround? I generally just spend the time to go through and delete the extra markers one by one, but it's a big time suck (and annoying!), and I've had this come up enough that it finally occurred to me to ask. =)

Thanks in advance!
