Well, the Constant setting is pretty much as it sounds. You "paint" a spot or area and it remains for the remainder of the clip. You can then delete keyframes if you wish it to end at a certain time.

Oh, it's one of those silly Adobe holdovers. Without a layer selected, hitting the numberpad * key (NOT the one above the 8 key) will place a marker on the timeline. WITH a layer selected, hitting the
