Markers in Final Cut Pro have so many uses; basically they are just points of reference in clips and sequences.  They can be placed directly in clips or in sequences in the Timeline ruler.  But did you know you can change the durations of these markers?  If you wanted to mark a specific amount of time, like 15 seconds of something in your Timeline, and make a comment on special instructions about that mark, for example, bring down the audio in this section; you can change that duration, or extend it so that it spans multiple frames.  Markers with duration can be used to precisely define subclips in a clip.  You can use them to mark an entire area of a clip or sequence with notes for tweaking.

To extend a marker's duration to the Playhead's location:
  • Move the Playhead to the right of the Marker
  • Go to Mark > Markers > Extend
  • An extended duration marker appears in the scrubber bar
