What's wrong with opening up the dialog and naming your chapter marker?
Authored by: osxpounder on Dec 31, '04 03:29:02AM

The hint says to do as you describe, but it doesn't say it clearly enough, I suppose. The author says one should edit the markers in FCP. Maybe the author didn't realize that two pokes of the 'm' key will bring up the Marker dialog box.



Making many chapter markers in FCP is UNNECESSARILY TEDIOUS; I wish Apple would make that dialog box easily usable via the keyboard, and offer an option for a project such as "All new markers will be Chapter Markers". I already wrote them about it over a year ago. I use FCP often at work, and I have made hundreds of those markers. I wish I could just poke a single keystroke and get a chapter marker -- and I never want to have to grab the mouse to do it. I'm in too much of a hurry and repeated mouse use is more wear and tear on my tired hands. We already do plenty of clicking and dragging of tiny interface bits in FCP day in, day out. More keyboard control is more healthy for those of who use it constantly.
