rd: Marker Navigator

This script allows you to easily view and edit the info for the markers on the selected layer. Click a marker in the list to jump to that particular marker in the current composition. Select multiple markers to modify their info quickly and easily; fields that have different (mixed) information are blank and will not change unless you make a change in those fields.

Click the More Options button (>>) to view and edit the selected marker’s information. The button changes to a Less Options button (<<) tbat you can click if all you want is a simple navigator without any editing capability. The state of this button is saved as a setting for future sessions.

Note: If you select a different layer, modify the markers in the Layer Marker dialog box, change the frame rate or start timecode for the comp, or change the time display style for the project, you will need to press the Refresh button to update the list of markers.

Note: In compositions with fractional (29.97, 23.976, etc.) or changed frame rates (e.g., from 30 to 24), displayed marker times might not be accurate, nor will the current time indicator jump to the expected location. This script tries to adjust marker times to match the times displayed in the Layer Marker dialog box, which might not be the same as shown in the Timeline.

Note: This version of the script requires After Effects CS5 or later. It can be used as a dockable panel by placing the script in a ScriptUI Panels subfolder of the Scripts folder, and then choosing this script from the Window menu.
