Importing one project into another project with markers

Wed Sep 13, 2017 9:03 pm

Example ...

1) I have Project 1 with one track of a mix with markers.

2) I have Project 2 with one track of a mix with markers.

I want to import Project 2 into Project 1 (I need to keep project 2's markers) and I want the imported Song 2 on a separate track to start at then end of Song 1 (say 3 minutes into the timeline for example with associated markers). I hope I have explained it clearly?

I can't seem to figure out how to do this? When I import Project 2 into Project 1 the markers come in with the track but they wipe out the first song's markers ... and the import always starts at the beginning of the time line not in the timeline at the end of song 1. What am I missing? ... or is this even possible?

Try moving song 2 three minutes along the timeline, putting the markers on to a duplicate marker track. Then import song 1, which will start at the beginning.
Or insert a clip three minutes long before song 2 starts then import that, afterwards delete the clip.

How do you make a "duplicate marker track"?

Use the Global Marker track:

... to create a new Marker Set.
Now you can import the marker track from the other project.

Thanks Eric ... also ...

I think I just figured it out? Simple copy & paste from one project into another. No "import" required.

I opened both projects. Went to Project 2, selected all the markers plus the audio region <cmd>C ... then went to Project 1, created a new audio track and selected it, put cursor at end of Song 1 and <CMD> V .... boom, both audio region (Song 2) and all the coloured markers for Song 2 planted themselves right at the cursor location.

Also, how do you select a group of markers all at once.

That's awesome!

Select the Global marker track header.
