When working in Final Cut Pro we can add Markers to our timeline. Adding markers to the timeline gives us the ability to 'export' special metadata along with our video. For example, when building a sequence in FCP that will be used in DVD SP, we can add Chapter markers to the timeline that will pass through on export to Compressor or directly to DVD SP, and will be available for us to use when authoring our DVDs. In addition to Chapter markers we can add Compression markers and Scoring markers for use in SoundTrack Pro.
