Learning Vegas: Using markers, regions, and commands (Tutorial)

Markers and regions serve as reference points along the Vegas® Pro timeline and help arrange events on the timeline. You can use markers for annotations, to insert metadata commands, or to mark track and index entries for a disc-at-once CD project.

 

 

Inserting markers

Click the Insert Marker button on the editing toolbar (or choose Insert > Marker) to add a marker at the cursor position. Markers can be used to indicate points of interest in projects or to make notes in the project.

If you choose to save markers in your rendered MPEG-2 file, DVD Architect™ Pro will read those markers as chapter markers. Ensure the Render I-frames at markers check box is selected before rendering (in the Render As dialog, choose MainConcept MPEG-2 from the Template drop-down list, and then click the Custom button. In the Custom Template dialog, select the Video tab and select the Render I-frames at markers check box).

Each marker (up to 99) is assigned a number. Pressing this number on the keyboard moves the cursor to the corresponding marker.


Renaming the marker

Position the cursor where you want to add a marker.

Click the Insert Marker button on the editing toolbar or choose Insert > Marker. A marker will be added at the cursor position and an edit box is displayed.

Type a name for the marker in the edit box and press Enter.

You can also insert markers during playback by pressing the M key.


Naming or renaming a marker

Right-click the marker tag and choose Rename from the shortcut menu. Type the name of the marker in the edit box and press Enter when you’re finished.

—or—

Double-click to the right of the marker and type a name in the edit box.


Moving and deleting

Drag the marker tag to a new location.
Hold Shift while dragging to temporarily override the current snapping setting.


Right-click the marker tag and choose Delete from the shortcut menu.
Right-click a blank area of the Marker Bar, choose Markers/Regions, and choose Delete All from the submenu. All markers and regions in the project are removed.
Right-click above the loop region, choose Markers/Regions, and choose Delete All in Selection from the submenu. All markers and regions in the selected area are removed.
