I have a tune with a bunch of tracks and a marker track. I have moved all the regions forward by a bar. Is there a way of making the marker track follow without having to move every marker?
The problem is not reproducible here. Cut/Insert Time does not seem to know about track stacks. It works on all regions.I'm not sure about the select all thing not including track stacks. Is this when the stacks are open? or Closed? Maybe one way works and the other doesn't?
Like I suggested, the Marker List. Use the create marker without rounding command and you can create a marker at the exact smpte location you need and name it what you want. Option click in the list to locate the playhead there. Not an EDL, but seems to fulfill the requirements you state?Hi Eli
I meant is there a way to capture a playhead position into a list where you can rename the edit decision and even locate to it?
Maybe in the Tempo Operations window? I'm not sure if it can specifically do this though without creating any events.Perhaps even compute the time between any two edit points?
You can open a separate Marker List and resize it as wide as you want. You can resize the docked version as well. See the attached screenshot.Hi Eli
I guess the marker list is the only way to go. Sometimes there isn't room to write enough if the markers are close (without zooming continually).
I hope you aren't using the Arrangement track for this! Use the regular markers for working with video. And lock them to smpte position. Or use the Scene Markers. The only difference between scene markers and smpte locked markers is that scene markers are tied to your video and will be deleted if you remove your video. Regular markers are tied to the project and remain.Also I find the marker (and arrangement) track a bit of a pain as they don't drop a vertical line when you want to edit the start or end times (or move the whole marker) like the cycle track does.
Use the pickup clock key command to snap the selected marker to the playhead position. Make sure they are unlocked, or this function won't work on them. See the screenshot.It would make life easier when trying to align these to a playhead or region start or end position.
Sounds like you're using the Arrangement track. Don't, this isn't what it is designed for.On top of which if I alter the length of a marker from the right-hand end it moves the following marker which I don't want.
Rounded means they are rounded off to the nearest bar position. You don't want this when working with video. Non rounded means they are created at precisely the tick or frame the playhead is at when you create them.I don't understand about rounded or non-rounded markers or even how to select which type I get. I would appreciate your explaining that to me.
Nope, don't use Alt and apostrophe. That's for rounded markers. Add Control to it for non rounded markers. See the attached screenshot.I use alt + apostrophe to make markers or use the + sign on the marker track header.
I found the Marker List - switched to Show Position and Length as Time. That's cool - I prefer SMPTE to bars and beats. The length computation is neat too. With your help I'm getting somewhere. Now I need a non-copyright piece of footage for my next inspiration.
