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/Opt-M to open the Add Marker dialog.
  3. Enter the marker text you want into the Text field.
  4. Optional: Change the timecode in the Timecode field.
  5. Click OK to input the marker and close the dialog.


A marker is input at the timecode position set in the Add Marker dialog, which by default is the position of the playhead. It shows the text you entered, or the default text “Marker” if you did not change the marker text, and a timecode reflecting its position.


You can also input markers by clicking Add Marker in the Markers section of the Video panel, or by using the Markers track in Play mode.
