Creator's Best Friend

for FCP X

Creator’s Best Friend creates
YouTube Video Chapters from
Final Cut Pro X Project Chapter Markers.

Creator’s Best Friend has been developed together with Peter Wiggins from Idustrial Revolution.
When he found that entering timestamps on YouTube
was not only time consuming but inaccurate,
he know there had to be a better way!


Here it is.



Final Cut Pro X supports Chapter Markers. YouTube supports Video Chapters, which are not compatible. In Final Cut Pro X you can add Chapter Markers to a Project. YouTube requires a simple list of time stamps and chapter names.


YouTube Video Chapters add extra metadata to your description that is used to improve a video's ranking.


In Video Chapters you can provide direct links to products or organizations you might mention. Affiliate links can be shortened in a URL shortener.



Creator’s Best Friend extracts the Chapter Markers from a Final Cut Pro X Project, and formats them ready for YouTube.



In Creator's Best Friend you can

  • Review your Chapter Markers
  • Check and correct spelling
  • Check URLs for accuracy.


Click the prominent “Copy to Clipboard” from Creator’s Best Friend and then paste into the Description Field of your YouTube video. You can edit the Description for video in YouTube’s Creator Studio at any time, even after publishing.



By simply pasting the correctly formatted list into that description field, YouTube does the work of creating, and linking to, Video Chapters.


This is great. I was just searching how to find chapter markers in final cut and ended up downloading this program. Well worth the $9.99

OMG this should be compulsory for any YouTube content creator with any intention to monetize their content. It addresses one o the most vexing problems with trying to navigate any content over a few minutes in length

We are going to use this to chapter the recent YouTube series and all future installments.

Mike Matzdorff, Editor


Chapters are tags and section headers and SEO and deep links and storytelling and replayability and accessibility and convenience and copywriting and branding and workflow – I frickin’ love chapters.

Absolutely incredible idea and app!

This will actually be a huge time save! Anyone who makes @YouTube content and uses FCPX give this a look. $10 could save you lots of time. Time is money after all!
