It appears that you added unnumbered markers to your timeline rather than Menu Markers. (Unnumbered markers are just reference markers.)
Menu Markers are red, green or blue.
There is a button to click on the timeline to create these markers. They can also be set by selecting the option under the Disc menu at the top of the program.
Long time no talk! You used to help me out many times when the PE-1 through PE-3 came out. I was HOPING you would still be around and you are! You came through again this time! Many thanks to you.
I use the Add DVD Scene button to insert the Markers. They are Green. Made a DVD and the markers work OK although ythey are "effective" during play back using the editing window.
While that problem was solved, will you come back and answer the other two questions concerning Rendering and the Red/Yellow lines? I would appreciate it very much!
I've been busy writing books for Premiere Elements and Photoshop Elements, Andy, and running my own Premiere Elements support site, http://Muvipix.com, in addition to hosting here for the past 7 years.
In fact, you may want to check out my free Basic Training tutorials at Muvipix. They'll help you with a lot of these basic questions.
The red lines above the timeline indicate that the timeline needs to be rendered. This happens when photos or incompatible video has been added to the timeline or effects or transitions have been added to your clips. If too much of your project needs to be rendered, your playback will lug or play poorly.
To render your timelines, press the Enter key or select Render Timeline from the Timeline menu. The red lines will turn green and your playback should improve greatly.
The yellow lines are level indicators. On video, this line usually indicates opacity, and lowering this line makes your video transparent.
On audio, the line usually represents the clip's volume level. When keyframes are added to this line, you can raise and lower your volume at specific points in your video so that, for instance, your music level can lower when there is narration, etc.
There are other settings for these yellow lines, but these are the default settings. And details on how to use them can be found in my books and tutorials.
Hope you'll drop by Muvipix and say hi!
Now that you had explained it, I think I DID know what the Yellow Lines were at one time as I used to adjust the audio level a lot and had noticed the lines heights vary as I went. But, after a few years of lack of using the program, the memory is GONE! This is what Age (approaching 80!) can do for you!
I really apreciate the invitation to your Muvipix site. I certainly will sent for your book as well. Thanks again!
Thanks, Andy! Hope to see you around the forums!
