JKL scrubbing is too slow

Feb 22, 2013 11:29 AM

Tags: #pro #keyboard #cut #scrubbing #final #shortcuts #jkl

In Final Cut Pro, I could tap the J or L key multiple-times and scrub super fast through a long clip.     In PP 6, the J and L just isn't fast enough.  I have to grab the mouse to scrub quicker.  Is there a setting to adjust this ?

 

Secondly,  I absolutely love this Final Cut shortcut but can't find it in PP.   I would select a clip in the timeline, and then using my keyboards up and down arrow keys, could move the clip to a different track.   I have been able to move a clip left and right but NOT up and down.   Is this possible ?

 

Lastly,  in FCP I would map a keyboard shortcut to change the 'color' of the clip in the bin after I had used it in the timline.  I have played with 'label groups' but this is only visible in the 'label' tab.  Is there a way to mark or color a clip name ?

 

thanks very much!

    1. There's no setting to adjust playback speeds beyond the tips Bill's link mentions.

     

    2. Moving clips to a new track can only be done with the mouse.

     

    3. Colors are changed only via the Preferences.

    I've heard people wanting to speed up J and L. There is no adjustment or preference, sorry. Make a feature request: http://www.adobe.com/go/wish

    I'm afraid not, but it's a popular feature request from FCP editors. I remember when that shortcut was added to FCP, it's very useful. Please make a feature request.

    No, labels need a few enhancements including the one you mentioned. Please make a feature request. Right clicking to choose a label and having keyboard shortcuts for labels would be other features I'd like to see.

     

    Let us know if you have more questions.

    Great news! Hope that Kevin has answered the other parts, though probably not with the answer that you want to hear.

     

    Good luck,

    Hi

    Regarding the scrubbing speed.  I use a shuttle comtrol for doing this stuff and there is a knob that as I turn it further it speeds up the scrub--all the way from fast reverse to fast forward.  The shuttle control communicates with Premiere Pro by sending keystroke sequences (just as a keyboard would).  There must be some keystroke sequence to accomplish this. Maybye rooting around in the key definition file can uncover the secret
