Using the Keyboard to Control the Edit Movie Window

Using the Keyboard to Move the Cursor

To move around in the Sorter Window with the key­board, begin by select­ing a cell with the mouse. Press the TAB key to move to the next cell to the right of the active cell. When the last cell in the row is reached it will wrap to the next row down in the first cell. Pressing SHIFT+TAB will move in the reverse direc­tion. Alternatively, hold down CTRL and use the arrow keys to move up, down, right, and left around the cells. When text is being edit­ed, then tab­bing to next row, the selec­tion point is set to the end of the text in the same cell and col­umn col­umn. If the Edit Instance Movie win­dow is open and TAB is used, the cur­sor will move up or down the same column.

Using the Keyboard to Control the Edit Movie Window

Since the Sorter Window is more about inputting text using the key­board, there are 3 short­cuts to con­trol the edit movie win­dow. These short­cuts are avail­able to help reduce the amount of time for using the mouse and these are designed to behave like the shut­tle con­trol on VTR.

If the Sorter is the key win­dow, the arrows con­trol the movie func­tions. If the edit instance movies is open, the mouse must be used to posi­tion the cursor.

CTRL+L plays the movie for­ward. Pressing this short­cut mul­ti­ple times sequen­tial­ly will play the video faster and faster incre­men­tal­ly. When movie loop­ing is turned off and the play­head reach­es the end of the movie, press­ing CTRL+L will start the movie play­ing from the begin­ning again.

CTRL+K paus­es the movie.

CTRL+J plays the movie back­ward. Pressing this short­cut mul­ti­ple times sequen­tial­ly will play the video faster and faster back­wards incrementally.

CTRL+I will set the start time for the select­ed instance accord­ing to the loca­tion of the play­head in the edit instance movie window.

CTRL+O will set the end time for the select­ed instance accord­ing to the loca­tion of the play­head in the edit instance movie window.

CTRL+T will set either the start time or the end time accord­ing to the loca­tion of the play­head. If the play­head is before the mid­point of the clip, press­ing CTRL+T will set the start time. If the play­head is after the mid­point of the clip, press­ing CTRL+T will set the end time.

SHIFT+CTRL+I will sub­tract 0.5 sec­onds from the start time of the instance. (Subtracting makes the start time ear­li­er, thus mak­ing the instance longer)

SHIFT+CTRL+O will add 0.5 sec­onds to the end time of the instance, mak­ing the instance longer.

SHIFT+CTRL+T will sub­tract 0.5 sec­onds from the start time if the play­head is clos­er to the start of the instance. If the play­head is clos­er to the end time, 0.5 sec­onds will be added to the end time.
