Add bookmarks to points of interest in audio and video clips

You can add bookmarks to indicate points of interest in a video or audio clip. Bookmarks can be used to trigger animations or to mark a specific location to jump to in a video.

Bookmarks can also be helpful while you deliver a presentation, when you need to find specific points in a video or audio clip quickly.

Here is an example of a bookmark that shows where to trim the beginning of a video clip.
