Inputting markers/timecodes

You can input markers at specific positions in time. Depending on your project-wide settings, timecodes can also be shown alongside markers.


  1. In Write mode, move the playhead to the time position where you want to input a marker.
  2. Press Shift-Alt-M.


A marker is input at the position of the playhead. It shows the default text Marker and includes a timecode reflecting that position if you have chosen to show timecodes in markers.


You can also input markers by clicking Add Marker in the Markers section of the Video panel. This method allows you to enter a timecode directly into the Add Marker dialog, rather than input a marker at the playhead position, so it can be useful if, for example, you already know the timecodes for each marker.

Additionally, you can input markers in the Markers track in Play mode.
