Combining files with "Joiner" - Chapter marks at file transitions?

Looking to combine .MOV files from a Canon camera into one longer clip.

Very easy to do by dragging all into VRD, and "Add to Joiner", then "Save Joiner" (or at least that's how I've done it).

So I get one file which seems to be OK, but would like to automatically add chapter marks between each of the clips (saving as .MKV).

Any way to do this?

Also, could be my imagination, but there seems to be a slight lipsync error at the end (or maybe more lipsync the longer it goes...) of a combined large (~5GB) .MKV?

All files I've joined are un-edited .MOV files, and I'm doing a "fast frame copy", so nothing (as far as I know) should be being rendered or re-encoded.

There is a Tools>Options>Chapter Marks>"At cut points" setting that perhaps will do what you want.
Tools>"Adjust Audio..." may fix the problem.

"At cut points" didn't work - tried that before, but thanks for the suggestion.

Will look into "Adjust Audio".

Thank you.

There is no way to add chapters between joiner segments sorry. You could open each one in the main UI and add a scene marker at the very end, but if you have a lot of files that could be tedious.
