We have video's with many, many markers and so have added TOC's in 7.1.
In 8.0 i'm not seeing the TOC entry highlighted while that portion of the movie is playing. In other words, the TOC isn't moving with the movie. I'm hoping this is a bug, if not the TOC in v8 will not be of much help to us.

PS: Because we have so many markers, recreating the TOC using callouts is not an option.

We use CS8 with a lot of markers also. What we see if the TOC element being highlighted if the rendered video plays normally (aka click play and let it run).

Say you have a marker at 1min45 and a marker at 2min45
User starts the video and lets it play
At 1min45, the TOC item is highlighted and remains so
User skips to 2min47
The 2min45 marker is not highlighted

In CS8, if you produce to flash and specify multiple files from markers, the TOC items index and highlight as video play advances.

I tried this solution (multiple files as markers), but it makes the transitions render badly, they're very choppy. Plus, I don't like how it then shows the duration for each segment instead of the entire video.

Is there any other fix for this? I'm not even getting it to play normally on the first run like synbryo indicated. What am I doing wrong?

If producing to multiple files from markers, do not use transitions immediately before the markers.

Single file productions with TOC will not have an indexing TOC; my workaround for this is to use a small callout, usually in upper right corner of video, that indicates same text as the TOC item; I keep that callout displayed continuously until the next TOC item
