to Benjamin McGuire for intensive beta testing and revealing crucial bugs. Also, thanks to Piotr Dąbrowski for sparking the idea of the new textarea, to Nicolas Page for bug hunting and version testing and to Erik Woodard for helpful input.
Due to Premiere's encoding, it may not be possible to re-import Premiere markers on a Mac. In the next version Markerbox will have a custom export that will solve this problem.
To test the Markerbox import you can download the following files:
Screenlight: Download the original Screenlight test CSV here. All comments are by the same person, so all markers will have the same color in your timeline.
Sequoia: Download a Sequoia test CSV here. If you are running Markerbox with default settings this import should create 100 blue, green and orange markers on your timeline (may take 10 seconds or more on not-so-fast computers).
Premiere Pro: To test the re-import please export existing markers from your sequence, using the native Premiere Pro CSV export (File > Export > Markers), and then re-import this CSV file.
Any problems? Please let me know.
Better marker export than the native Premiere Pro export.
Import of comments exported from Frame.io (video workflow platform).
Import of labels exported from Audacity (audio editing program).
Detail improvements, bug-fixing and stability across plattforms and versions.
Import of markers exported from Castmarker (stand-alone marker app).
Universal import/export CSV format for other applications.
Marker export as labels for Audacity (audio editing program).
Automatic marker color rotation without the need to define rules.
Delete sequence markers by type, color or import source.
Mass color-change of markers on your timeline, based on individual rules.
Temporarily hide markers of certain type or color.
In case you have some ground-breaking ideas I might not have thought of I would be happy to hear from you.
