Utizing Chapter Markers in Final Cut Pro

You can add navigability to your DVD projects in DVD Studio Pro by setting chapter markers in your Final Cut Pro sequence. By adding chapter markes to your finished sequence, you will give those who have the pleasure of viewing your DVD the flexibility of selecting specific chapters of interest for playback instead of having to shuttle through a program in a linear fashion.

Note: Do not place chapter markers at the very beginning or at the end of your sequence. A marker will automatically be placed by DVD Studio Pro at the begnning of your program.

Concerning the business of placing markers, think of them as chapters in your favorite novel. Each marker should be strategically placed where you feel there is an ebb in the flow of the story.

1 Park the position indicator over the desired location for the marker and press the M key twice. This will place a green marker in the timecode area of the timeline and open up a dialog box.

2 Give the marker a descriptive name that is pertinent to the action in this particular chapter and click the Add Chapter Marker button. Now, whenever you park over that marker, you will see an overlay in the canvas window displaying the name of that chapter.
