Final Cut Pro 7 Essential Training: Markers

By Abba Shapiro

Final Cut Pro 7 Essential Training demonstrates why Final Cut Pro is the primary tool for professional video editors. It gives users access to nonlinear editing workflows, collaboration features, and creative tools. Apple Certified instructor Abba Shapiro teaches the core features and tools that will take a hodgepodge of video clips and turn them into a finished project. He moves through the entire process, from selecting and refining the best takes to building a story. Using advanced editing techniques, he shows how to refine that story into a tight and effective show. Abba covers all the steps needed to get up and running, cut a story, mix audio, and deliver a final project.

In this clip, host Abba Shapiro explains how to work with markers in Final Cut Pro 7. He explains what a marker is and why you would use it. A marker is a way that you can write a note to yourself when you are editing. He shows how to make a marker as well as how to modify a marker. He then looks at markers in a bit more detail, including how to add chapter markers, compression markers and Scoring markers, and what they do.
