For Premiere Elements 9.0/9.0.1, please see Disc Menu/Generate Menu Markers/Automatically Set Menu Scene Markers dialog.
As always, this will work will Timeline of video clips, but beware what happens if stills get into the mix.
Been that way since as far back as Premiere Elements 2.
Please let us know if that is what you sought.
I had tried that. The menu option to "Generate Menu Parkers" was not
active. Tried it several times. I just went in and tried it again and
I thought perhaps I needed to do something to activate the menu choice.
Thanks for the good news that the Automatically Set Menu Sceen Marker worked for you.
As I recall, in Premiere Elements 9.0/9.0.1, you have to be in Edit area, not Disc Menus area, to get the active
Disc Menu/Generate Menu Markers. Please check it out and determine if you observe the same.
But, great news is that you are moving forward in your Premiere Elements projects. Great job.
I had tried opening the set markers option from all the areas, including
and it wouldn't open.
But I just went in and experimented with it to see what I had accidentally
done to get it to work, and it appears that it won't function if the
red time indicator is set at "Home". It apparently needs to be inside the
material in the timeline for the marker option to work. That's
my old v.3, where you could automatically set markers anytime, anywhere.
Thanks for the details for what worked for you.
I would expect the same feature behavior in 9 as in the earlier version. I mentioned already what I observed in my version 9 look at this feature.
Are you getting into the issue where you get a different behavior for that feature depending on whether the
Timeline files are stills or videos? If stills, you should be getting a scene marker at the beginning of just the first. If videos,
you should be getting a scene marker at the beginning of each video. If a mix, then.....interesting.
I have not had occasion to use automatic scene markers with stills. I do
for customers often, so will check on that next time I do one of those.
At this point,
I'm only making DVDs from old reel-to-reel 8mm movies. When I tell it
markers every 5 minutes (my usual time), it does that regardless of how
scenes (movie reel changes) are in there.
But slideshows are usually a fairly short timeline, so I could manually
place markers if
desired. (as compared to 8mm transfers, which can be 2 hours long or
slideshows are only about 8-10 minutes long anyway.
Thanks again for your help!
