To output the marker info as an EDL, activate the timeline whose markers you want to output, then in the Media tab, right-click on the timeline, select TimelinesExportTimeline Markers to EDL… and save the EDL file.

⚠️ If the timeline isn't open, the Timeline Markers to EDL menu item will not be available.
