Place your mouse over the slider and scroll while holding ctrl.
See if that will help. Playhead will stay in the middle and expand the ECW to get more room.
No, no better. It's almost as if it is switching from zoom to move when it gets to a certain zoom level.
Maximize the panel then expand the keyframe section.
I have a need to tightly control positioning of a video clip using motion position keyframes. But the effect control window can only expand a very limited amount. The suggestions by Jim and Ann are of no use: Ann's suggestion actually does not work at all, and Jim just points out the problem with no solution.
See attached photo after maximizing panel and expanding keyframe section as much as tool allows. Video clip shown is 1.5 hours long, mp4 1920x1080 at 29.97 fps. Product is Adobe Premiere Pro 8.0.
WHAT IS NEEDED IS THE ABILITY TO USE THE MOUSE TO PINCH IN THE "ZOOM/POSITION" SLIDER DOWN TO THE INDIVIDUAL FRAME LEVEL.
With the CTI on one of the key frames... try the + and - keys to zoom in and out.
Does not work for me. But you did get me to think of checking the "Keyboard Short Cuts" under the file menu.
What does work for me in windows environment is to put the current time indicator (CTI) on one of the keyframes, then use the "=" (equal) key for zooming in , and "-" (minus) for zooming out. Note that the "-" key associated with the Numlock keypad will not work, just the "=" and "-" keys on the top row of the normal keyboard.
You were close enough to get me thinking about a solution, thanks for that.
Those were the exact Keys I was talking about. + (=) and - (_) on a standard keyboard.
I have a dedicated Premiere Pro Keyboard and it is labeled differently to normal kbds.
Yes, that's why I "liked" your reply in the first place. Yet it took me several hours to figure out that "=" is the adobe short cut for "+" in zooming in general. My bad, for being self-taught. Thanks again for your time. For the "uninitiated" perhaps my post will help bridge the gap to get a solution quickly.
The real problem seems to be a bug in the "slider thing" in the effects control window (EFW), forcing me to finally start learning, and appreciated, keyboard shortcuts.
