Navigating with Markers

You can navigate through your clip or sequence using the markers you’ve set. This is useful when you want to quickly navigate to specific points in a clip or in the Timeline. For example, you can place markers in the Timeline to mark two different frames for matching during color correction, or place markers to quickly jump to different scenes in a sequence.
