Creator’s Best Friend converts Final Cut Pro X Chapter Markers into Video Chapters for YouTube.
After you copy the Video Chapters, you simply paste them into the Description field of your video. You can edit the Description field at any time in Creator’s Studio. Once you Save, YouTube interprets the Video Chapters, displays them along the video timeline, and makes clickable links from the time stamps.
Obviously Video Chapters improve the viewing experience, and provides benefits for Creators.
Viewers can go directly to sections that interest them, increasing engagement.
They can also navigate directly to Product and affiliate links directly from the Chapter Markers, although for affiliate links you might want to use a URL Shortener.
All the information in the Description field, including Video Chapters helps video ranking.
Start adding Chapter Markers in Final Cut Pro X as you edit your Project. Make sure they are Chapter Markers. Add in any Emojis or links — they’ll all appear in your YouTube Video Chapters.
When you’re done, drag the Project to Creator’s Best Friend. Instantly you see all Chapter Markers from the Project.
Here you can:
• correct any spelling errors
• follow links to make sure they are correct, and
• paste in links or shortened links
Click the Copy button and head for YouTube and paste into the Description field. You can do this when you first publish, or any time after.
Creator’s Best Friend will save you time, and help make you more money.
• Bug fix for markers on transitions
• Bug fix to ignore markers that are no longer visible in the timeline

If you are a FCPX YouTube creator, this app is for you. A real timesaver. All you have to do is make chapter markers in FCPX then they can be exported to YouTube. It just works.
Not good for a complex Timeline
It works as advertised as long as the markers are JUST on the main time-line. If you simply go through and add markers at the appropriate time, and the markers land on secondary time-line or another connected clip, FCPX will show the time in the index correctly, but this app will assume the time code of the secondary clip or connected clip. So to use the app, you will need to make your time-line a Compound clip and then add the markers to the compound clip. Not the best, but it works. It's no Producers Best Friend, but it works.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
