Add and remove markers

It’s easy to add and remove markers. If you add markers to clips in the Browser, the markers are visible in both filmstrip view and list view. When you add clips with markers to the Timeline, the markers are visible in both the Timeline and the Timeline Index.

Add a marker to a clip in the Browser or the Timeline

  1. To specify where you want to add a marker, do one of the following:

    • Skim to the location.

    • Play the clip, and when the playhead reaches the location where you want to add a marker, press the Space bar to stop playback.

    For more information about positioning the skimmer and the playhead, see Navigate within your project.

  2. Do one of the following:

    • To add a marker: Choose Mark > Markers > Add Marker (or press M).

      Tip: To add markers on the fly, just press M while playing a clip.

    • To add a marker and show the marker’s information: Choose Mark > Markers > Add Marker and Modify (or press Option-M).

      Adding a marker this way automatically shows the marker’s information.

    The marker appears at the top of the clip in the Browser or the Timeline.
