Your tracks need to be targeted (selected) for that short cut to work. Targeted tracks show a greyed header in the left panel of the timeline.
Tip: Shift-Click to target or untarget all tracks. CTR-Click to select / deselect individual tracks.
Targeting the track seems to work for about 90% of the edit points. There are still a few edits that are skipped.
I couldn't live without this shortcut, so thanks a lot for the help!
There are still a few edits that are skipped.
Hmm... that's troubling. Theoretically, the next/previous edit shortcuts should acknowledge all edits in targeted tracks. Was this sequence one that was generated when you imported an FCP XML? What happens if you try the shortcuts on a natively-created sequence?
I ask because I've had instances where FCP XML sequences create some weird phantom edit points that are not visually represented in the timeline. These can cause some instability to playback and in some situations, cause Premiere Pro to crash. I'm wondering if you're getting a similar syndrome where you see the edits represented, but Premiere Pro is not acknowledging them. If that's the case, it's certainly worthy of a bug report: Adobe Feature Request/Bug Report Form. The FCP XML import has improved by leaps and bounds, but it can still be a bit tipsy.
Thanks Shooternz. Selecting the track works!
This has been bothering me for a long time. Not a killer but just time consuming.
Yes, I'm only working on imported FCP XML sequences. Sometimes even with the correct track targeted, there is no response when I hit the next/previous edit keys. After a bit of time, the shortcuts will work again. I'll test a few native sequences soon.
My system doesn't seem sluggish, but the occasional skipping could be a performance issue. I'll report back after the system settings have been fully reconfigured. Will submit a bug report if the problem persists.
