    Option to migrate markers from source clips to group clips


    Markers (locators) applied to source clips are not migrated to group clips. You can load a group clip and match frame to the original source and see your markers there, but they do not carry into the group.  I imagine this is because markers applied to a group clip float to all media in the group and are not locked to one media source.



    I would like to have the option to migrate markers (locators) to group clips when making a group.  I also propose that there be a new type of marker called a "Group marker" that floats to all sources in a group clip.  This would allow you to retain your original source markers in a group (for example, CamA markers only show up on CamA clip in the group), while still being able to apply a group clip marker that floats to all clips in the group (group marker A shows up on CamA, CamB, CamC, etc...).

    +1.  The same thing happens when Autosyncing - any locators that existed in the orignal master clip are removed in the sync'd subclip.
