    Question about markers

    L3pton

      Hi, I'm sure my question has a simple answer. My problem is that when I use the shortcut (shift+8) to make a new layer marker, instead it creates a new composition marker, labelling it as '8'. When I use the shortcut over a different part of the timeline it moves this composition marker. Any idea what is going wrong? I'm using After Effects on Mac if that helps

          That's what it's supposed to do. Read the instructions here, where it says that using the number keys creates a composition marker.

          Again, that is what is supposed to happen. From the same set of instructions that I linked to above:

           

          • To add a numbered composition marker at the current time, press Shift + a number key (0–9) on the main keyboard.
            Note: If the number you press is already used by another composition marker, After Effects does not create a new marker. Instead, it moves the existing marker with that number to the new position.
