Preview media

  2. Do one of the following to preview the clip:

    • To start or pause playback, click the Play/Pause button.

    • To advance or go back to the nearest marker, press either the Go to previous marker Cc294503.24fc6a5e-e562-46bb-b207-21822a8418f9(en-us,Expression.10).png or Go to next marker Cc294503.00336088-8751-4f97-aee4-033bd01d4290(en-us,Expression.10).png button. If there are no remaining markers, the playhead advances to either the end or the beginning of the clip.
