Please add a dedicated Video marker track that always stays attached to the video track events just like there is a dedicated audio track just for the audio content of the video. This could be used for marking specific hit points in the video for tempo/mood changes while scoring to picture. 

Other programs like Cubase have the ability to add multiple marker tracks, wherein one marker track could be set to timebase in seconds for video and other marker track could be set to timebase in beats for music. Studio One could take this idea a step further in a much better and more intuitive way by adding industry first feature of video markers (timebase in seconds offcourse), wherein the markers are not only automatically set to timebase in seconds and nested in the video track, but the markers are also glued to specified frame numbers in the video clip, so that when you move the video clip along the timeline, the attached markers move with it as well, and vice versa. 

The recently added Lyrics track in S1 already can do this and Kudos to Presonus team for such an innovative feature. The track Lyrics (not global lyrics) are glued to track events and move with them. I am requesting the same functionality with video marker track. Please see the GIF below :

This would really make the video track in S1 very versatile, complete and much smarter than other competitor DAWs.

Hoping someone from the Presonus Team takes note of it and makes it happen. Thanks for reading this.

Nice idea to create a mockup using the Lyrics Track!
