Use markers to:

  • Add an interactive table of contents to your video to create navigation points for your viewers. See Video Table of Contents.
  • Mark editing points such as mistakes during recording, sections to cut out, etc.

  • Set points to split a long video into multiple videos.
  • Automatically mark each slide on the timeline when recording a PowerPoint or Keynote presentation.

     

Working with Markers

  • By default, markers are added as timeline markers.
  • When added to the timeline, markers stay in the same location regardless of what media is added, moved, or deleted on the timeline.
