State Supply is focusing heavily on video as a medium to attract new customers. We have been slowly building up content for State Supply’s YouTube channel. I have been using Adobe Premiere CS5 for the video editing. In doing so, I have found myself repeatedly coming back to a handful of keyboard shortcuts. As with coding, using keyboard shortcuts when editing video saves oodles of time. So without further adieu, here are the Adobe Premiere CS5 keyboard shortcuts that I most commonly use.
|\||toggle full sequence view|
|Ctrl + drag mouse on cut point||ripple edit|
|Ctrl + drag mouse on sequence||create new sequence based off current|
|Ctrl + drag mouse on source monitor||create new clip based off current|
|Home||jump to beggining of sequence|
|End||jump to end of sequence|
|J + K||play backward in slow motion|
|L + K||play forward in slow motion|
|* (on numeric keypad)||create sequence marker|
|Ctrl + →||jump to next sequence marker|
|Ctrl + ←||jump to previous sequence marker|
|Alt + →||move clip one frame forward in sequence|
|Alt + ←||move clip one frame back in sequence|
|Page Up||jump to next cut in sequence|
|Page Down||jump to previous cut in sequence|
|Alt + drag mouse on cut point||adjust duration of linked audio/video independently|
|Ctrl + drag yellow line on audio clip||adjust audio level in fine increments|
|Ctrl + click on audio clip||create audio keyframe|
- Use the “Slip Tool” when you want to maintain the clip duration while changing the clips content. The slip tool is particularly useful when you wish to change the content of a clip on which you are working within set time constraints.
- Use the “Rolling Edit Tool” when you want to want to move the location of a cut you made between two clips.
