Markers Nightmare - disappear markers and limited functionality
Working in Premiere Pro 2017.1.2. In a studio that keeps all of the machines on the same version.
A quick google will return threads from 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 about disappearing markers.
Here is a thread regarding CC 2018: CC2018: Markers Disappeared...
Markers disappear. It's been a consistent problem in Premiere. Each time we are told to file bug reports. It's never fixed. It breaks between updates. I can't speak for other editors, but when I'm editing between 10 - 17 hours a day, I don't have time to repeatedly log bug reports about a bug that has been around for years.
I'm currently editing a project that is a mix of multicam and merged clips.
Merged Clips - I spent a good chunk of an edit day, that the schedule simply does not allow me to make up, marking merged clips with chapter markers/descriptions. All of those markers are gone.
If I keep the clip open and drop it into a sequence, the marker is not on the clip. Am I not supposed to use merged clips? When choosing to sync external audio with video, is it reasonable to expect editors using Premiere to just to accept that markers don't function with merged clips?
Multicam markers - I can mark multicam clips in the source window but I cannot make the overlays display my marker notes in the source monitor. I have to drop the clip into a sequence to display the overlay. Why is the functionality crippled?
When I drop the multicam clip into the sequence, I can read the markers, but I cannot mark the clips themselves from inside a sequence.
This is a basic function of editing and Adobe continues to put out releases with broken functionality of markers. How does this get through QC before release and how is this not being solved in a timely manner? I'm not sure if 2018 has been fixed as I'm in a 2017 environment. As studios still haven't updated to 2018, I'd love to see a fix released for 2017 and 2018. Is this unreasonable?
I just posted this in the forum and unfortunately do not have time to clean this up and make it a bit friendly. Simply put, markers have been broken for a long time.
