[FEATURE] Markers on the Editor timeline

The ability to press a keyboard shortcut (even while playback is running) and have HitFilm put down a marker at that point in time.

Markers can be extended to cover a time range, have notes/titles for easy readability, and can change color.

    And most important: if you put a marker on a clip and then you need to create a composite from that clip that marker has to be importend in the new composition to help you out with editing. I love to use markers to just point where the effect has to start/end and it will be impossible to do it if the marker stay only in the editor timeline.

    Is it possible to create a mark on the timeline?

    I know that label can be added to tracks with colours

    But what I mean is adding a precise mark on timeline

    So that I may create marks on first time I watch the whole clip

    Then on the second time, I may refer to the mark description and click to direct there and edit from there

    I'm using VEGAS POST Suite software, so VEGAS Effects is technically the same software with Hitfilm Pro.

    Can we have simple "marker" features in the compositing timeline? I used it alot when editing with VEGAS Pro NLE, would be nice to have small marker inside VEGAS Effects/Hitfilm as guidance/indication inside the timelime.
