markers on clip and markers on same clip in sequence
on Feb 15, 2019 at 9:31:17 am

ok.. so i have a clip that is on a sequence.. i frame match that clip and make markers on the source clip.. then those markers are not on the very same clip on the sequence.. i have to overwrite it...

am i missing something how to set this up so when i make a marker on the clip it translates to the same clip in the sequence?

i am using 8.3

Nope, not missing a thing. Markers won't appear on clips already in the sequence when you add them to the source. Not sure any edit software does that.

In case you're not aware... the locators (markers, sorry, I refuse to not use locator as that's what they are!) will go into the sequence if you already have them on the clip if you have the setting for that turned on.

what setting is that?

so for instance i have the same clip on a timeline.. i decide to mark up the clip outside the timeline. would the timeline then be updated automatically?

No...he said:

"the locators... will go into the sequence if you already have them on the clip if you have the setting for that turned on"

Meaning if you have them on the clip already...in the source...and then cut them into the sequence, they will follow. But no, you can't have a clip in the sequence...add a marker to THAT clip in the source, and then have a locator appear on that clip at that spot in the sequence.

Yes. Good clarification. I should have said when you cut them into the sequence they will be in the sequence as well if they were on the clip.

Should you want to use it, that setting is here, you need to have your Source/Record monitor window highlighted:

Windows > Composer Settings > Edit > Copy Source Markers (locators!!!!!)
