    I am currently cutting a job on FCP. I can’t find out the best way to use markers. I have long interviews and press m twice to set and write a marker, but to find it again I have to highlight all the clips and press shift and arrow up then m to read each one. It seems very long winded.

    In avid i can see a list and jump to the marker I want to find the synch I want, is there not something similar in FCP?

    Thank you in advance if you can help.

    Markers are not the strong suit of FCP.

    You can’t get a list of sequence markers in FCP.

    This is a bummer, and has been complained about for a long time.

    When you add markers to a clip that is in the browser you get a carot next to it that allows you to see a list. Unfortunately, this is not currently the case with sequences.

    Thanks for that Tom.
    What a shame, it’s a pretty important feature isn’t it.
    Thanks V much for the post.

    The only way to get a list of sequence markers is to right click in the timeline ruler and take a screen of the shortcut menu. Pretty clumsy unfortunately.

    All the best,
