Using Markers in Adobe Premiere Pro CS6

This excerpt explains how you can mark clips with comments and flag up areas of interest for later using markers, and explains how to use sequence markers, clip markers, and interactive markers.

Note: This excerpt is from the forthcoming book Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 Classroom in a Book.
Sometimes it can be difficult to remember where you saw that useful shot or what you intended to do with it. Wouldn’t it be useful if you could mark clips with comments and flag up areas of interest for later?

Markers allows you to identify specific times in clips and sequences, and add comments to them. These temporal (time-based) markers are a fantastic aid to help you stay organized, and share your intentions with co-editors.
You can use markers for personal reference or for collaboration. They can be based on clips or on the Timeline.
When you add a marker to a clip, it is included in the metadata for the original media file. This means, you can open the clip in another Premiere Pro project and see the same markers.

Types of Markers

There is more than one type of marker available:

  • Marker: A general marker you can assign a name, duration, and comments.
  • Encore Chapter Marker: A special kind of marker that Adobe Encore can convert into a regular Chapter Marker when making a DVD or Blu-ray disc.
  • Web Link: A special kind of marker that supported video formats like QuickTime can use to automatically open a web page while the video plays. When you export your sequence to create a supported format, Web Link markers are included in the file.
  • Flash Cue Point: A marker used by Adobe Flash. By adding these Cue points  to the Timeline in Premiere Pro, you can begin to prepare your Flash project while still editing your sequence.
