Finding Markers using the Edit Index
In a short timeline such as the one you have here, navigating to each marker isn’t much of
a challenge. On more involved projects, however, you’ll need a quick way to locate one
specific marker among dozens of other markers. The Edit Index is a list view of all the
editing events (clips and markers) in the current timeline.

1 At the top of the DaVinci Resolve window, click the Edit Index button.

The Edit Index opens below the Media pool, showing all of the editing events and
columns of metadata. This is too much information to digest even in a short timeline.

2 In the upper-right corner of the Edit Index, click the options menu.

3 Choose Show Markers > Red.

The Edit Index changes to show only the red markers in the timeline, making it much
easier to review the list. But you can make it even easier. As with the bin’s list view,
you can choose to show or hide columns of information.

4 Right-click a column header to open the menu of columns.
5 In this menu, deselect each column except for Number, Color, and Notes.

Now you can identify each marker by its color, and the note you entered.

6 Click the red marker that contains the note, “Add Roaring Take Off.”

The timeline jumps to the marker on the 02_A380_Takeoff clip. This is the next
clip to which you’ll add sound effects. Instead of trying to find the marker in the
Source viewer, DaVinci Resolve has an easier way that you’ll use next.
