  • Import Chapter Markers - DVD Workshop

    Is there a way to use the timeline markers in Edius 4 as chapter markers in DVD Workshop.

    Thanks,
    Rich

    There was a free application that let you do this, but I don't have the link...hopefully someone has it. It was on the old forum.

    As for Edius directly, you can export the .CSV file, and open that in notepad, then use the timecode data to find the I frames of the MPEG2 video and create markers in DVD Workshop.

      Hi!

      You can´t import markers in DVD Workshop 1 and 2. Hopefully Corel will
      bring a new Version of DWS with an Importplugin.

        I don't use DVDWorkshop, so I don't know if this is possible. There is a plug-in that will allow for a txt file export of the chapter markers in Edius:

        http://www.matsab.de/markerexporter/...ExporterEN.htm

        The text file can be imported into some authoring applications to automate the process of chapter marker creation (DVDStudioPro does this). As Dave noted, Edius has it's own marker exporter option, but the file format is csv--which for most apps will require you to strip out some of the extra 'stuff' and save as a text file (a bit more work, but if you have a lot of chapters, it still saves time).

        One note, the chapter markers set by Edius and Procoder Express/Procoder are not I frame accurate. There is no forced I frame insertion at the point you select a chapter marker. So if you are expecting the marker to be precisely at that point, the chances are it won't be (but it will be close).

          I have always set the markers and then written down the timecode for each one.

          In DVDWS2 you can then just type in the timecode and set your chapters.

          MUCH faster then trying to find the right spot :)
