    The only thing I can think of that you might be doing wrong is that your importing the text file in the wrong area.
    Import the text file above the timeline.
    Right click and click on 'Import Marker List'



    Disregard this if that's what you have been doing. . . .

    Hi Bill, I got it to work finally but I also had to remove the "quotes" from the actual timecode and change the timecode to non drop frame, the ; to : before the frame numbers. I couldn't find a way to change the track to DF in DVDSP 3 prefs. and I had to remove the quotes from the name field because they were annoying. I don't have excel but converted the csv file on the mac with the text editor. Still alot faster then typing 56 chapter markers twice !!!

    Thanks !!!
    Cool !
    Yes much quicker than typing 56 chapter markers yourself.

    If you get Excel it will speed the process even more.

    Bill :)

    *2 - Remove the first column with the marker numbers (1 to whatever)

    *3 - Save as a .txt file, if your doing this on the Mac,
    save it as a windows txt file.

    This is all I do and it works fine.

    Let us know how you go.

    That exporter is easier but you don't get the 'comments' of the markers.

    Having the comments in DVD Studio Pro makes it quicker for me to connect the correct button on the DVD to the correct marker.

    that's what I use and I assumed that everyone is using the marker exporter plugin? its been around as long as Edius

    then again all this info was deleted with the old forum

    Wouldn't the Edius Marker Exporter plug-in make this job a whole lot easier?

    I do this daily and use the text file direct in DVD Lab Pro
    Which version of Edius are you using, I have 4.24 and there is no TXT option?
