How To Create Web Markers in Premiere 6

Using timeline markers to create interactivity By Stephen Schleicher
Last time I introduced Timeline Markers and how they could be useful to help quickly create edits for music vignettes. This time we will quickly explore the Timeline Markers a little further and see how they can be used to launch Web pages for your streaming media.

The new support for Timeline Markers in Premiere 6 is an excellent addition, particularly for those who use multimedia elements on their sites for informational materials-demonstrations, how-to articles, technical documentation, etc. With just a minor amount of effort, you can build into your video content-QuickTime, Real or Windows Media-elements that can explain or demonstrate concepts and ideas that could take pages and pages of text to explain.



The gray Timeline Markers in Adobe Premiere 6.0 can help
with editing or to place Web links.

Why would you want to do this?

For example, let's say you are streaming a cooking show, and you're showing how to prepare a succulent meal for a Memorial Day get together. Because of the limitations in streaming video, graphics don't come out as well as they should. When you get to the portion of the video where the ingredients or recipe are to be displayed, you end up with garbage. It would be better if, when the video reaches the ingredients portion, a frame in your Web site launches giving all the information needed and maybe even links to sites on the Web where the key components can be purchased. This makes an average streaming media site an excellent dynamic streaming media site.
