I want to set beat markers manually because I have been disappointed with the beat detect feature; it doesn't put markers exactly where I want them. It looks to me the best way to do this is to create unnumbered markers while the track is playing and then match my clips to them. The problem is I cannot seem to get that to work. I have tried multiple keystrokes: "8", "shft-8", "m", "M", space bar, and several other random ones to set unnumbered markers while playing but nothing seems to work. I think precisely and manually setting markers for clip changes is pretty essential to amateur creativity but find myself stopped before really even starting with PE14. Any suggestions?
I have just downloaded Premiere Elements 14 and am working on a mac with no individual * key (it is shared with 8 key).
Same exact question, but for Premiere Elements 15.
There is a not a keyboard shortcut for adding an unnumbered marker. However, you can easily create one, as long as you select an option not in use.
Go to the Edit menu and select Keyboard Customizations. In the Application settings, open the Timeline Commands and, from this set, open Set Timeline Marker. Select Unnumbered. You can set, for instance, Ctrl+m as your keyboard shortcut.
THANK YOU Steve! That's exactly what I needed. I appreciated the specifics to get me exactly where I needed to do that. OK, back to working on this.
