Get markers from video exported from Premiere?
on Jul 19, 2018 at 10:08:21 am

I'm setting up a workflow for Templater ( but I need to get markers from the base video file which gets dynamically replaced.

When you drag a video (that was exported from Premiere) into Ae, it automatically shows layer markers for any markers you set in Premiere.

But when Templater dynamically replaces this footage, the markers do not get updated.

So I need an expression – or script? – that will grab the markers from a given MOV file and either save their timecodes to a file (JSON, text, CSV, whatever) or apply those markers to the right layer in Ae (before Templater renders.)

Just to be clear ... I need to read the markers from the QuickTime .mov file -- NOT from the Premiere app!

Can someone help me get started on this? Or know of something similar I can use as a starting point?
