I can't imagine trying to edit without using comp markers all along the timeline. I am starting to think I must be an odd bird. When working in After Effects I feel like I'm trying to edit with my feet, when I want to jump through a series of continuous markers either forwards or backwards but I CAN'T. Yes there are workarounds. I don't find it empowering to have to keep the labels "1", "2", "3".... if I want direct access, but I guess it's better than not. What do you folks use instead of descriptive markers? Text layers?
