    Question: search/find function and markers?

    StevenPhares

      FCPv1 through 7 user, now being forced to decide between Avid and Premiere, so I have tons of questions, but I will start with this:

       

      I need to search through my marker comments, but I notice the find function doesn't work while in the marker tab, nor does it give options to search through marker comments while in the project tab. Is this possible?

       

      It was also be preferable that it brings up every instance of the keyword, and not just the next instance, I am not seeing that as an option either...

       

       

      I am hoping I am just missing something and you guys can help clear it up for me.

       

       

       

       

      Here is my workflow incase it will help answer the question:

       

      I have a video clip, and I have to transcribe every single line of dialogue in the clip.

      I need to be able to search these dialogue lines.

      Boris soundbite does not work for this, as I need to see what is said, not find where certain things are said.

       

       

      Using subclips was my original Final Cut Pro work flow, but premiere handles subclips differently, and match framing only matches back to subclips, and not source material like I need it to. Unless of course there's a setting that makes subclips match frame to source material that I am missing, I dug around and looked for one but didn't see anything.

       

      Thanks.

          Markers in Premiere Pro CS Next will have this functionality. I just checked it out. Sorry that this function was not included in Premiere Pro CS6.

            That is awesome.

             

            Let me also ask this question about markers if I may.

             

            I have made a project named, "Project A"

             

            and then placed about 20 markers in the video files.

             

            I then imported those video files into a new project, and saw that all of those markers still existed.

             

            In my situation, I have 30 editors, all referencing the same files on a massive fiber SAN. Is there an option to keep that marker meta data out of the clips so my editors aren't killing each other because someone is re-writing someone elses stuff?

             

            Thanks!
