Creator’s Best Friend converts Markers from a Final Cut Pro project or a Premiere Pro sequence 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.

HeyCaputo ,

Good, but could be close to perfect!

Does exactly what it says it can do.

For your consideration:
- Ability to drag and drop XML file from finder window into application would be easier than navigiating

- option to add the left and right brackets and remove the hyphen to the timestamp (e.g. [0:55] Intro)

A Must Have to Save Time!

If you make more than 3 chapters in your YouTube videos, you need this program. I just created a YouTube chapter list in less than 10 seconds with this program. Stop wasting time. Buy it now!

Works about 20% of the time. Freezes up. You'll save time just by doing it manually. Great idea, but so buggy that I stopped using it.

Developer Response ,

I would really like to see an XML file that freezes up the app. Under the app's Help menu is where you can send an email to me and please attach an example XML file exported from Final Cut Pro.
