    Clip Markers

    Is there a difference between a "clip marker" and a "sequence marker"?

    I know how to set a sequence marker and that they are used for chapter marks when outputting to DVD.

    However, I keep seeing references to clip markers (On the new features page of the Edius 5 website:

    and the product related download page for the upgrade to 5.1:

    The only reference I can find for a Clip Marker when actually in Edius is in Settings/Application Settings, where I can snap to Clip Marker.

    I realize this may be a basic question with a simple answer but I'm stumped.

    A clip marker is a reference to the clip

    A sequence marker is a reference on the sequence timeline.

    If you set a clip marker and move the clip on the timeline the clip marker will stay with the clip.

    If you set a sequence marker and move clips the sequence marker will stay on the same place

      Remember that the clip markers need to be set in the Player window.

        Thanks guys. Immediately after posting I saw a related post that also helped answer my question. Guess I should have done a search. I'm kinda new to the whole forum thing.
