    Keyboard shortcut for Go to time?

    dalbabes

      I'm sure this is a newbie question, but I'm looking for a keyboard shortcut that I can jump to the current time. I know in After Efects it's Alt + Shift + J which brings up dialog that you can go to a specific time. Any shortcut like that for Premiere?

          Type it into the Timecode box provided in the Timeline Window.

           

          There are a number of ways this box accepts the numbers eg frames or time

            I figured that. But is there a keyboard shortcut to select the timecode box or do I just have to breakdown and use the mouse?

              Treat yourself ...one little mouse click... .

               

              I was going to add..."cant hurt much" ...but then my RSI kicked in and reminded me that maybe it can "hurt you"

                No need for a shortcut key or a mouse click; just type in the time you want to jump to using the numeric keypad. For example, to go to 00:01:00:00, type 10000 and press the Enter key. You can also use the period/decimal key and a 0 to shorthand 0:00. In other words, type 2.0.0 to represent 00:02:00:00. This works in the Source Monitor, Program Monitor, or Timeline panel.

                 

                Also, you can add a "+" or a "-" before the number to move relatively to your current time.

                  Just be aware that if a clip is selected in a targeted track, Colin's method will move the clip, not the CTI.

                    Ah, yes--thanks for that reminder, Jeff. IMO, this is one of the great flaws of Adobe's implementation of direct time navigation. I've reprogrammed myself to clicking in a blank spot of the sequence or hitting Ctrl+Shift+A, so I don't even think about it.

                          Well, one would think so. However, when I click to give the Timeline focus, I always manage to hit the TimeCode box. Lotta' real estate there, but I hit the danged TimeCode box. When I try to outsmart myself, I end up clicking on the tab for another Sequence. I get so frustrated with myself sometimes!
