Previously Asked Questions

Re-targetting an automatically installed FCP-X Share Destination

Share destinations in FCP-X, such as the one optionally installed by Marker, are hard-coded to target the app in a specific place. In this case the targeted app is Marker.

The automatically installed share destination targets Marker in the Applications folder. If your copy of Marker is in a different place you are likely to see an export of a full QuickTime, and no action in EDL-X.

This can be fixed manually in the FCP X Preferences. Point FCP X to where-ever your copy of Marker is installed by selecting in it the 'Open with:" popup menu.

MarkerUserScript on Lion

On Mac OS 10.7.x MarkerUserScript does nothing at all. The user interface in a forthcoming release of Marker will reflect that better. Already installed copies of MarkerUserScript do no harm on Lion systems. The script can be removed using the following steps:

  • in the Finder press CMD-SHIFT-G to open the Go to Folder dialog.
  • copy & paste or type into that dialog: ~/Library/Application Scripts
  • press return
  • delete the folder named biz.xmil.marker
  • quit Marker and relaunch it

Find and delete the file called biz.xmil.marker.plist
