Creating .mp4 files with Chapters

From Final Cut 7.0, our chapter marks (using the 'm' key and creating "CHAPTER" marks) were correctly read by Handbrake, which could then create the appropriately sized .mp4 files. NOTE: A chapter mark is needed at the 00:00 mark, in order to select the beginning portion of the video. The chapters were viewable when the .mp4 file was opened in QuickTime X and View > Show Chapter Info was selected.

SIDENOTE: These chapter markes seemed to be read by Handbrake only when included in an NTSC timeline. Our HDV timeline self-contained Quicktime files did not seem to be read by Handbrake. We just created a new NTSC sequence, copied the footage from the HDV sequence and re-rendered and exported.
