1. Export a XML marker file from Avid Media Composer
To export timeline markers, go to: "Tools -> Marker". Right Click on "Export Markers as XML".
2. Use the "Marker Converter" to convert the XML marker file into a MIDI marker file
Open the free Marker Converter, select "Avid Media Composer > Marker XML (.xml)" and set "convert" to "Avid Pro Tools > Midi Markers (.midi)". Generate and download the file. If you have problems converting the file, you can contact the free support.
3. Import the MIDI marker file into Avid Pro Tools
Under "File -> Import -> Midi" you can import the generated marker file into Pro Tools. Select the file and then "Add Midi Track".
ℹ️ If there is already a midi track with markers, you have to remove them first. If your session is not at 00:00:00:00 the imported markers have an offset. Therefore, when converting, specify your timeline start timecode from your Pro Tools session (you can find this option under "more Options" in the form above). Often this is 01:00:00:00.
