I am creating an infographic / animation video. I am having a bit of a problem using markers to mark out points in my soundtrack.

I have created a main comp with contains all my nested comps (animations), my background and my voice over.

I want to be able to add markers into my main comp at important points in the voiceover but I then want these to be visible in the nested comps. This is because I cant hear my voiceover in the nested comps but need to be able to know when to animate certain objects / text?

I hope this makes sense and someone can suggest how to make this process more efficient?

2 way┬┤s (maybe more.. but i got 2 for you)

make a null set the marker on the null, copy it.

set the marker in the timeline.
drag the nested comp NEW (not alt-drag!) in the work-comp.

You can add markers to the audio track's layer, complete with short text comments. Then you can copy it and paste it into your nested comps. You have your audio AND your markers.
