Work with markers overview
A marker is a visual reference point in the Timeline that identifies a specific frame. You can add as many markers as you want in the Timeline ruler while playing the project, or when the playhead is stopped.
Use markers to:
Add a visual reference to an object at a specific point in time. See Add, move, and delete markers.
Quickly navigate to specific points in a sequence. See Navigate with markers.
Align other objects or keyframes to an important point in time.
Add notes about a specific area in your project. See Edit marker information.
Customize effects templates for use in Final Cut Pro X. For more information about template markers, see What are template markers?
You can assign different colors to different types or markers and create marker groups.
There are two types of markers: project markers and object markers. Project markers are fixed to a specific frame or timecode value in the ruler. Object markers are attached to an object and move around as you move the object in the Timeline.
