Sometimes media files in non-linear editing projects are spread all over the place. Marker makes keeping track of them easy. The Finder Tags that you can set from within Marker help you visualize what's used, and what's not. The app can also select and deselect files in their Finder windows.
Marker works with XML information from Final Cut Pro X , Adobe Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro 7, as well as with ALE files from Avid Media Composer.
- show you a list of all folders that contain media files from the XML or ALE in Marker's main window
- open folders containing used media files in the Finder
- select and deselect used and un-used files, as well as all files in a folder
- set or remove File Tags on media files in the Finder
- save a list of the files in the folders currently loaded in Marker. This can be helpful to create a file inventory, or to import into databases, etc.

Marker's Little Helper
There is a small script, which can be installed right from within Marker, that helps overcome some limitations imposed by the OS X sandbox. This AppleScript accelerates some of things Marker does, but using it is optional. Read more about it here.
Marker version 1.1 runs on Mac OS X 10.9 and newer.
The helper script versions used with Marker version 1.0.x are discontinued, and do not work with Marker 1.1. They are still downloadable here.
