In Premiere Pro CC 2015, how do you delete all the markers on a audio clip at the same time?

Hi Andrew.

I'm having the same problem as Al Di Marzio. When I click the marker button (or shortcut to set marker) playback stops and I have to hit space again to start.

Do you have any suggestions how to fix this?

Thanks.

Stuart.

Hi Stuart

Are you using CS5 or 6? In 6 it is the M key in 5 it is the * key on the num pad not the * on the main keyboard.

Hope this helps

On CS6 how do you move your cursor from one marker to the next
for markers that are on a clip in the timeline. The go to next marker works
in the source window but not on the clip in the timeline? Thanks

Hi Lewis
I think you probably just need to select the timeline and you will find the same keyboard shortcuts work in the timeline. The method is specific to which panel you have selected.
Hope this helps

thank's for a good tutorial. I have a question. I am using a new macbook pro, where is no num pad on the keyboard… is there any way (other key) i could use to set the markers up?
thanks for help!

Hi aga
The answer is yes... but as I am a window user I'm not 100% sure exactly how. However, from memory you need to use a modifier key - probably the command or control key while pushing the number 8 on your keyboard. I have seen it done on a training course but it was about a year ago! But I think that is it.

However, if this doesn't work play with the other modifier keys - alt/option - and possibly shift + command & shift + alt/option to see if that does it.

Have a play and let me know how you get on.
Thanks
Andrew

Hi aga
OK, I've had a look and although i can't find out about a keyboard shortcut with the macbook, the other way of doing it is with the mouse.

As the music is playing in the source panel, just click the third icon from the left hand side that looks like a kind of downward arrow and is just past the two { } (set in and set out point icons) as the music is playing. This is the 'Set un-numbered marker' icon. This will not stop the music and it will set the marker - so it will achieve the same result for you.

Hope this helps

Hi again,
this question might be stupid- i am trying to figure out how to delete markers from my soundtrack…

Thanks:)

To delete them in the source panel you simply hover your mouse over them or the line that has been created and you get a two line icon, click and drag the marker off the screen and that will get rid of it. In the timeline - from memory - I think you right click the marker and choose delete marker - or you delete them from the marker menu at the top.

Hope this helps .. if it's not right get back to me and I'll go and open up PP and double check.

Hi Al, the * key has to be the one on your num pad and not the one over the number 8! This should sort the problem and allow you to put the markers in without stopping playback. Hope this helps. Andrew
Re: Using Markers To Pace Your Editing
by Al Di Marzio
Hi Andrew, I love the whole timing issue. I usually have my wife do the music end of things as she has a wonderful musical ear.

On my copy of CS5, when I press the [*] key it stops the music and I have to press the [space] bar to re-start the music. Is there something I am doing wrong, or a setting I need to change, or, God forbid, there is a glitch in PPro.

Hi Andrew

I like ur small clips of video editing tips. I appreciate ur work. BTW, is there anyway of saving these clips on dvd for future reference?? Thanks
Re: Tutorial: Using Markers To Pace Your Editing
by Andrew Devis
Actually, the only way I know to save the clips once edited is either to export each clip out - which is a pain and not very useful - or, to save a copy of the project by using the Project Manager. If you select Project>Project Manager you will see a couple of options there for saving whole projects both with full length clips and with trimmed clips ready to use at another time. You could then burn the whole project to DVD ready to use on another machine or at another time. Hope this helps. Andrew

PS - At some point in the next few weeks, I will probably do a short tutorial on the Project Manager just to show how it works, but it is very straight forward.

Cooking With Premiere Pro CC on PBS's America's Test Kitchen

As America's Test Kitchen enters its 15th season on PBS, they've made the switch to Premiere Pro Creative Cloud. Post-production Supervisor and director Herb Sevush has been with the show from the beginning, and confessed some trepidation moving away from FCP 7, but has found it to be a great fit for their data-intensive, increasingly 4K multicam production, and his work with remote editors. Here, Herb offers some insights into both the why and the how of their switch, with special attention to Premiere Pro CC's approach to multicam.
