Split at key frame marker

Having exported a PowerPoint slideshow to Camtasia (9.0.1), I'd like to add transition effects at each key frame marker.
It would be useful to add a "Split at all Key Frame Markers" (either single track or all)  to the edit menu.

With 45 slides, moving to each marker in turn, then splitting at that point is tedius.... and this feature would be a natural addition to the PowerPoint capability.

PS. an obvious extension to this would be to mark and bound a timeline period and split markers etc., only those that were inside the bounded area....

Hi Duncan, 
One more thought - export each PPT slide as PNG, then import the PNG's to the project.
I'm not saying it's a better approach, but one more you could try, it might be easier than splitting a single recording to add transition effects.

I did actually resolve this (to a point) by discovering the keystrokes for 'Jump to next marker' { Cntrl-]  }, followed by 'Split-All' { Cntrl-Shift-S  }

if you want to automatically create a split at all markers in a project, use modify/markers/split at all markers

Hi and thanks for submitting your idea!

As outlined in our New Community Processes post, feature requests are open to voting up through the 1st of the month (this month is slightly different, due to the holidays) where we will then tally the votes and present the findings to our product teams. To ensure we have the most accurate data, on the 1st of the month we will be locking the threads that were listed in the Feature Request Round-up that was posted on the 15th. Once we have reviewed the submitted feature requests, our product team(s) may respond to the request, and if that is the case then that thread will then be unlocked for further discussion.

In the event that your idea is not selected for a response feel free to resubmit the idea and share it with your colleagues to garner as much exposure as possible!

Thank you again for your idea and we look forward to hearing more from you!
