Is anyone aware of software specifically to make chapters but one that lets you designate the start/end times by selecting the frame in a video?

You could change your timeline settings to show audio time units (milliseconds) and then copy paste the exact time stamp into your chapter editor program

The only chapter editor I've seen is in Handbrake (I haven't looked deep into the subject, though). Unfortunately if that's all you used Handbrake for you'd have to demux the chapters file out and remux it into your "master" video render.

Sounds annoying to do, but if there's no other way you find, at least it should give the results you want. Just not conveniently.


Edit: I do think some NLEs let you add flags or markers in the timeline and during export you can choose to set those as chapter points, but again, haven't looked into it deeply.

In Davinci Resolve, you can add marker points to your video, then export these markers as chapter points when you render.

Yeah, and you can choose which colour of marker points to use for the chapters, so you can still use other colour(s) of markers for other purposes.
