What do you need them for, specifically?
Chapter makers for those that have iDVD still?
iDVD is long dead, so you can't expect Apple to support it in the new iMovie. But there are third-party DVD creators if you still need to create DVDs for some reason. I'm sure many of those support adding chapter markers.
I couldn't get the chapter markers I created in iMovie '09 to work in iDVD '09 and I'm surprised you want them in this new OS X. You can create chapters in iDVD though, if you still want to use it. I know creating DVDs is becoming outdated to some, but many of us still support the older generation that needs, or prefers, to use DVDs. I applaud your dedication!
Do Markers work on the iPhone or iPad iMovie apps? Great video - you are a wonderful instructor.
No, I'm pretty sure they are just in the Mac version.
Good video. I'd gotten used to using beat markers with the previous movie of iMovie and had stopped making slideshows when the new version dropped that feature. This video showed me a way to work around that. Still I hope they add back the old way at some point - it's so much easier.
Can I use markers to delete a section of video? I basically added markers to delete portion of video I don't want but not sure if I can do this in imovie. Please help.
You don't need markers for that. Just place the playback head at the start of the section, us the Split function, then place it at the end, use the Split function again. Then select and delete the middle section you just created.
I need chapter markers. They have eliminated them. Any workarounds in iMovie?
