How to adjust settings so I can move playhead 1 frame at a time?

Hello,

 

I am a using Adobe Premiere Pro CC on a Windows 7 PC.  At the present moment whenever I try to move my playhead it moves 3 frames at a time.  I would like to set it so that it moves 1 frame at a time when I nudge it (using the left and right arrow keys).  What is the process for this?  Thank you for any help you can provide for this.

    I do not see the problem you are talking about.  You might have to reload Premiere.  Take a look at Edit/Keyboard Shortcuts/Step Forward and it should say Step Forward  Right (arrow)

     

    Did you in Windows modify any keys to repeat?

    You might try the K + L keyboard combo.  Holding down K, you can tap L to move forward one frame.  Regardless of your timeline's zoom level, this combo will always move only one frame.  (K + J to move backward one frame).

    Are you sure you are not using the Large Trim shortcuts? This is grasping at straws, but it is possible to change the Large Trim from 5 frames to some other number. Could you have set it to 3?

     

    I know it is highly unlikely, but I have never heard of this problem before so grasping at straws is the only choice left other than wiping out all of your preferences and starting over.

    What is the frame rate of the source clip?

    Are you seeing the three-frame jumps in the Source Monitor or the Program Monitor? If the latter, then what is the frame rate of the  sequence?

    Many ways to check the frame rate. It's shown in the tooltip that pops up when you mouse over the clip in the Project panel. Right-click the clip in the Project panel and select Properties. Check the Frame Rate column in the Project panel (if you're in the list view). Open the Info panel. In the Metadata panel, type "frame" in the search box.

    No.They are not related.

     

    Please confirm your issue.  

     

    If you left or right arrow key in  any of the monitors or the timeline...you get a 3 frame jump?

     

    How are you measuring the "jump".

     

    Tell me what happens if you place your cursor over either of the monitors and scroll the mouse wheel one click.

    What's at 10. The frame rate of the clip or of the sequence?

    Does the Source Monitor also jump 3 frames, or only the Program Monitor?

    You have 10fps source footage in a 30 fps sequence!!!!!

     

    (The math adds up)
