Here are my 2 latest FRs.  Please resend to Adobe as your own FRs if you like the ideas!

Brief title for your desired feature: Zoom to Keyframes

 

How would you like the feature to work?

The same way Shift-Z can be used to Zoom to Timeline, it would be amazing if Shift-Z (or another shortcut) could be used to 'Zoom to Keyframes' whenever the ECW is the active window.  This way, getting keyframes outside a clip's range into view for editing would be a quick 1 step process.  Using the same shortcut again could toggle back to the default 'Pin to Clip' view.

 

Why is this feature important to you?

This proposed feature would be much faster to use compared to the current 'Pin to Clip' option in the ECW's Wing menu.  When deselecting 'Pin to Clip', the zoom level remains the same, thus forcing the user to go through the added steps of zooming/scrolling/adjusting to get the keyframes into comfortable view for editing.  A 1 step 'Zoom to Keyframes' toggle would be much more convenient than the current 'Disable 'Pin to Clip', zoom/scroll/adjust' method!

Brief title for your desired feature:  Auto zoom to keyframes when disabling 'Pin to Clip'

 

How would you like the feature to work?

When disabling 'Pin to Clip' in order to see and edit keyframes that fall outside the bounds of a clip in the ECW, it would be very handy it the ECW's zoom level automatically defaulted to the correct setting in order to see all keyframes at a comfortable level. i.e. left(right)-most keyframe placed at the left(right) edge of the ECW, such that the all of the clip's keyframes fit across the visible work area.  This would work the same way 'Zoom to Timeline' works, however it would be invoked automatically.  Turning 'Pin to Clip' back on would automatically revert to the previous zoom level.

 

Why is this feature important to you?

An automatic 'Zoom to keyframes' feature in the ECW would make keyframe editing that much faster and more pleasant.

    I'd prefer if Adobe just entirely got rid of mouse wheel zooming without the ALT modifier and returned the mouse wheel to it's proper scrolling behavior, as it was in all pervious versions of Premiere Pro.  Then just Unpin and Scroll.  Simple, efficient, workable.

    I think ease of programming is the advantage of my version.  I find the zoom level sufficient when Unpinning, it's just damn difficult to drag the scroll bar to get to where I need to go.  If I could scroll with the mouse wheel, code which is already in the program for other windows, we'd have more refined control, and life would be easier.

    you'd rather see Adobe take the easy, complacent way out than see them put forward an honest effort to improve PP with inovative, albeit perhaps slightly harder to program, tools?

     

    Yes.  That's exactly my point here.  Well interpreted.
