Lesson 8. Working in the Timeline > Working with Markers in the Timeline

Working with Markers in the Timeline

You don't have to guess, estimate, or drag clips aimlessly through the Timeline searching for the right place to move them. Sure, it's okay to experiment and move things without knowing exactly what you want. On the other hand, if you already know where you want things to go, you can place markers in the Timeline as guides. Markers are like Post-it notes that you place on the Timeline as reminders or comments or to mark specific frames. Let's place some markers in the Timeline that we can use as guides as we add and move media within the Timeline.

Planning the Project Updates

The current project has a duration of 5;26, which is also the duration of the surf_1_SD_jpg clip. Your overall goal is to extend the project to make room for a third Oakley watch—but 5 seconds and 26 frames is not much time to show two watches effectively, let alone three watches, so you'll first add another video clip to the video layer. The first two watches are on the screen for approximately 3 seconds each, so you'll want to add at least 3 more seconds of video. Also, you need room to overlap the video clips, to add a fade transition between them. You also need to decide where the third watch element will begin in the Timeline.
