After Effects Import Markers
Import markers into Adobe After Effects from a comma-separated (CSV) or tab delimited text file.
Markers can be imported as either comp markers or layer markers. Marker times can be in seconds, frames or timecode.
- Supports comma-separated (CSV) and tab-delimited (TSV) formats.
- Works seamlessly with Adobe Premiere Pro marker files.
- Import either as comp markers or layer markers.
- Marker time can be written as timecode, frames or seconds.
- Additional marker data can be imported using named columns.
If no header is present in the marker file, the first column is expected to be the marker time and the second column is expected to be the marker comment/description. For example:
00:00:00,Marker 1 00:01:03,Marker 2 00:04:11,Marker 3
A header row can be used to import additional marker data and have the columns in any order. For example:
comment,time,duration,chapter Marker 1,10,60,1 Marker 2,120,50,2 Marker 3,180,85,3
The following headers are recognized:
- time, start or in
- out or duration
- comment, markername, or description
- parametername, paramname
- parametervalue, paramvalue
Header values are case insensitive and spaces are ignored. e.g. 'event cue point' or 'eventCuePoint' are treated as identical.
Commas (,), tabs or pipes/vertical bars (|) can be used as field-delimiters. This script detects the field-delimiter character automatically, based on the first instance of a valid delimiter character within the file. i.e. one delimiter type must be used consistently throughout a file.
You can purchase a single-user license for this script for US $9.
