Timeline-Marker-Exporter-Plugin for Edius

Overview

The Timeline-Marker-Exporter-Plugin exports marker positions of the EDIUS timeline into a simple textfile. You can choose the export format, either the frame number, standard SMPTE timecode format ("hh:mm:ss;ff") or a user defined format. The user defined format supports several placeholders for the real values during export. The exported list can be used for other things like DVD authoring (as chapter points).

Import Chapters into DVDLab

This section shows how to import chapter points into the DVDLab authoring tool (Mediachance). Chapter points are used for quick navigation through the movie using the next/prev chapter keys on the viewer's DVD remote. Chapter points can also be used as reference for menu links.
Before you can set up chapter points, import the corresponding movie into DVDLab first. By choosing "Movie" and "Import Chapters..." a file import dialog is shown, which allows you to select a plain text file for  import (the text file of the MarkerExporter).

The exported text file will be analyzed and imported by DVDLab by choosing "Movie" menu and selecting "Import Chapters..." or by right-clicking the movie and select Import Chapters from the context menu

If you click the button "Proceed" DVDLab starts to scan the video file for the imported frame numbers and automatically sets the chapter points at that positions.

FAQ

With EDIUS I have the possibility to export the marker-positions into a textfile. Why do I need MarkerExporter?
EDIUS can export positions of the markers only in the framerate of the current project, a conversion into another framerate is not possible (for example from NTSC- to PAL-timecode).
Which versions of EDIUS are supported by the MarkerExporter?
EDIUS 4.x
EDIUS Neo 1.01
EDIUS 5.x
EDIUS 6.x
EDIUS 7

Installation

Edius 4.x / Edius 5.x / Edius Neo / Edius 6.x / Edius 7: Just copy the file 'MarkerExporter.tpi' into the PlugIn-directory of Edius. (usually C:\Program files\[Canopus or GrassValley]\EDIUS\PlugIn)
