Beat markers on-the-fly in Premiere Elements 11

Feb 2, 2013 10:57 AM



Am evaluating PE11 and have yet to find a way to add beat markers on-the-fly--y'know, like by hitting M or *.

Any advice. (No, am not interested in the apps auto-beat detection.)


Many thanks!

    Welcome to the forum.


    Unless it has changed, the * key, on the numeric keypad, can be used to add Markers on the beats, as you play the Timeline. Note: if you are off, you can manually move those, as is needed. Does that particular * (make sure it is the one on the numeric keypad) not work for you?


    Good luck,

    OK, maybe Steve Grisetti, who runs PrE on both a Mac and a PC, can help you there. Sorry, as I only do PC.


    Good luck, and thanks for that info.

    I'm sorry, I don't know what the solution is. But I wish Apple would quit eliminating features without asking its users! Whatever greater efficiency they create by doing so is muting by the workaround you have to find to do a simple task.
