    You can’t move markers with expressions, but you can modify your expression so it does not need markers anymore. And it will also be faster to render. Somehting like this to replace the part that you posted should work

    startDur = 5;
    endDur = 15;
    startDur = framesToTime(startDur);
    endDur = framesToTime(endDur);
    if (numKeys > 0) {
    t = linear(time, inPoint + startDur, outPoint - endDur, key(1).time, key(numKeys).time);
    } else

    You can modify the frist startDur and endDur to how many frames from beginning and end you want the animation to start.

    I dont know how the rest of your expression looks like to also modify that part.
