Timing A Composite Shot with something happening in the main editor

Apologies if this has been asked before, I didn't really know the correct terminology. I'm brand new to Hitfilm, I'm using Hitfilm Express. I have Youtube Intro footage on my main editor and I have created an animation with text and shapes in a composite shot. The thing I am struggling with is timing the text popping up and going away, in the composite shot with what's happening on my main editor.

What would be the best way to do this? At the moment I have to keep opening my main editor then opening my composite shot and moving the keyframes a little more, and rinse and repeat. It takes a wee while.

Thanks,

    Have you tried adding the intro to the comp and then syncing any audio to it like that (add audio to comp) or seperately by unlinking the audio from the video first?

    This approach might not be what youre after, but sounds ok in my head.
