Track select forward doesn't move markers?

I'm relatively new to Premiere and trying to insert a brief pause into the video. I used the razor tool to make a cut in the narration audio, and now I want to budge over everything to the right.

I thought I could do this with the track select forward tool, but it's not moving my section markers.

So, two questions:

1. What's the point of the track select forward tool if it doesn't move markers? Isn't it virtually useless? Or is it not recommended to use markers in our projects? I would find it very difficult to work on a large, complicated video without markers to let me see the overall structure at a glance.

2. Am I doing this wrong? Is there an easier way to budge everything over to the right? I'm just trying to create a gap in the narration, which I will later fill with a title (but I haven't started adding slides and titles yet).

Track forward doesn't do it, but here are 2 methods that will.

Ripple insert and move sequence markers - how to do this?

If you don't have the title ready yet, just create a dummy placeholder clip.

Hi there,

Welcome to Adobe forums and thanks for using Adobe Premiere Pro.

I understand that you are trying to insert a gap in the sequence so that you can create a title later on to fill that gap. Is that correct?

I assume that you have created sequence markers instead of clip markers. Sequence markers would never move if you move the clips. I would create clip markers instead to get rid of this problem.

Select the clip and then press the M key to create clip markers. Now, you can move the markers along with the clips.

Using markers in the Premiere Pro timeline

Let us know if this helps.

Hello Shivangi and thanks for your answer.

Creating clip markers would not help me. In my video, there are several major sections, and each of those sections contains several different video and audio clips, so it would be impossible to mark the sections of the video using clip markers.

I just want to be able to label the various parts of my video, for example "Introduction" and "Section 1" and "Conclusion" etc.

To me, it seems like an oversight that the sequence markers don't move with the clips when using "Track select forward" and I am going to send feedback to Adobe about this.

Thanks again.

Thank you, Stan. That is helpful.

I knew that "insert edits" moved the markers along, so I guess you could just insert a dummy clip. But this is still a workaround to a flaw with the program.

I have submitted feedback to Adobe, not only to have "track forward" affect markers, but also an overhaul to the markers system:

Sequence markers - several improvements – Adobe video & audio apps

Please would you take a look at my idea and vote it up if you like it?

Thanks for chiming in, Stan.

Suicide, thank you for submitting your idea. As Stan mentioned, Track Select Forward Tool does not have that functionality. I have up-voted your idea.

Best,

Shivangi

I think you may be misunderstanding the purpose of the timeline on the sequence.

Timeline markers provide a non varying temporal reference for the placement of clips. One if there main attractions is that they don't move when you adjust clips.

Timeline markers are used to provide easy to see "flags" on that timeline, in the same way a carpenter might put marks on ruler or notches in a workbench - these "flags" calling out that something needs to happed at that temporal location.

They exist independent of the clips that are placed in relation to them.

Clip markers, on the other hand, are used to call out locations within clips. They should move if the clip moves, or if the clip is slipped or slid.

But the Timeline markers should not move as they are released to the time of sequence.

That said, there are ways to move you timeline markers if you need to do so as pointed out by shivangi gupta

I have found this annoying as well, but I have a different work around and it's fine for most situations. I just create a piece of transparent video, name it what I want the "marker" to say and then label color it. Unfortunately the text is a little smaller than that of the real marker and obviously it doesn't show up in the marker window. But, it's a solution for some situations.
