Not sure what you mean about markers...but the point of masks is relevant to your question about

and how to i make places where my effects wont show? like an area where the effect wont appear in?
A mask does this. You need to check the effect menu in AlamDV & find the mask section, then put that over the footage you want to have the effect over. I think you have to do this BEFORE you add an effect like an explosion. You can resize the mask to what you want. The best thing you can do is just add the mask & then add an explosion - then you'll get what I'm talking about & should be able to discover the rest for yourself.
