What Can You Do with Markers?

Markers let you perform a wide variety of tasks:

 Mark several possible In or Out points for future use.
 Quickly move the playhead to a marker in a clip or sequence.
 Mark a range in a clip that you may want to use as a subclip.
 Align a clip marker to a marker in an edited sequence to match a visual or audio cue.
 Align a filter or motion keyframe to a marker for future reference.
 Align other clip markers, clip boundaries, or transition boundaries to a marker in

the Timeline.

 Add visual notes about clips that will help you identify sections while editing.
 Divide clips into subclips using the Make Subclip command.
