Setting Chapter Markers in Compressor

Apple Compressor will allow users to embed chapter markers. This can be very useful when going into DVD Studio Pro. DVD Studio Pro can be difficult to place chapter markers exactly where you want them, because you are at the mercy of the GOP’s. By embedding chapter markers where you want them in Compressor, you guarantee that they will be where you want them in DVD Studio Pro. Final Cut Pro users will typically embed their chapter markers in Final Cut before outputting. However I know Avid users that have purchased the Final Cut Studio primarily for Compressor and DVD Studio Pro, and embedding chapter markers in Compressor vs DVD Studio Pro would certainly be the better workflow.


To apply a chapter marker in Compressor, simply move the playhead to the frame that you wish to have a chapter marker, and hit the M key to set a marker. Next you can either go to the Modify Marker Settings menu, and choose Edit, or just use the command + E keyboard shortcut, to bring up the Marker Edit Settings. Change the type from Compression to Chapter. You can also give the chapter marker a specific name at this time. Upon encoding with Compressor, and importing into DVD Studio Pro, the chapter markers will appear at the desired location, with the desired name.
