Hello,

I am working with Premiere Elements 2018 - now I want to export my project with the allready inserted scene marks to a MP4-File.

Is there any option to get the existing scene marks as chapter marks in MP4-Export-File so that i can easily jump between chapters in VLC-Player?

Thanx for any feedback!

Handbrake seem to be able to add markers.

Ann,

That would be useful.  So, I tried to figure it out.  The documentation suggests it can import chapter markers that already exist in the source, but can't make new markers. 

From the Handbrake documentation:   "HandBrake can copy chapter markers from your source...." and "Unfortunately, HandBrake can not currently add chapter markers if they did not already exist in the source."

I located the "import" tab for chapter markers but saw no "creation" tab.

This is not possible in Premiere Elements. Scene markers are solely a function of DVD authoring.

I don't see chapter capability anywhere.   The only "work-around" I see on YouTube (or anywhere else) is an opening screen with time markers.

My understanding is that it is not within the MP-4 standards.  No software can do it.  Chapters were part of the (ancient) DVD standards and newer Blu-Ray standards.

Thank you all for checking out.

I have now found out that chapter marks can be added with XMedia Recode Software to MP4-File. This works now for me.
