Hi. I hope you can help me.

I am trying to export a very short movie with markers from a movie menu so that the video will be easily navigable. I understand that it has to be a windows media file or an apple movie to retain the markers so I am doing a custom export of a WMV. The export takes forever (or Im impatient after multiple tries) and at the very end I get an export error with no additional information. A file is in the designated location but it is a small file and will not play. I checked my storage last night and I have plenty of room on my computer and I have had no other issues exporting videos, just the custome export of a WMV.

Does anyone know what I am doing wrong? Thanks in advance.

Libbey, Time stamps or 'chapters' shown in your example are made on YouTube.   As Steve wrote, the better choice is a more standard MP4 (with an H.264 codec inside) for uploading to YouTube.   Then add the time stamps.  From Google/YouTube: https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/9884579?hl=en  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b1Fo_M_tj6w&t=32s

It doesn't matter what format you output, only DVDs have scene markers. Your markers will not appear in an MOV and WMV file.

 

So I recommend you just output as an MP4, the current universal language of online video.

Actually you can. You probably just haven't seen one yet. Here is a great example - https://youtu.be/xl9RaHE9ZpI

 

I'm really hoping someone has an answer to this.

What I meant was that this is not possible to do with Premiere Elements.
