Lesson 18. Navigating with Lingo > Using Markers to Label Frames

Using Markers to Label Frames

When movie actors enter a scene, they move to the spot the director has specified for them. This is often a chalk mark on the floor, unseen by the movie camera but of vital importance to the actor, who must "hit the mark" to make the scene work according to the director's wishes.

Director also uses markers—in this case, to designate locations in the score to which the playback head can branch. Each marker has a name that identifies the frame containing the marker. Once you've named a particular frame, you can use Lingo to tell the playback head to go to that frame. In fact, the syntax of the Lingo command is go to frame "name". You replace name with a frame name, surrounded by quotation marks.
