Markers for Windows

Marker is an insightful aid in Filmora’s video creation and editing since they enable users to highlight or mark the errored points in the video. In simple words, users can pinpoint their mistakes and correct them later easily without having to watch a complete video again. Although the feature was already present in Filmora, it has been optimized, and here is a guide to utilize it.
