Adobe Premiere: Moving a video clip via keyboard

50 Views
Last Modified: 2020-08-27
I need to move a video clip one frame at a time, and find the mouse move an uncontrolled number of frames.

Is there a key I can hold and use the left or right key to move the video by one frame at a time?

Thanks

You should be able to accomplish this with the left and right arrow keys on your keyboard. To move 5 frames at a time, use shift and the left or right arrow key.

You can also try the shuttle function by holding down the following:
Shuttle Left: J
Shuttle Left Slow: Shift + J
Shuttle Stop: K
Shuttle Right: L
Shuttle Right Slow: Shift + L

Hi,

The first thing I tried were the left and right arrow keys. Then, Command+Left, etc.

I see that moves the carat, but I need to move the clip on the timeline, one click at a time. Drag and drop with the mouse is usually wrong.

Do I need to do something special when I select the segment? Hold a special key, for example?

Also, what I usually am trying to do is make two clip abut exactly.

Any tricks to that?

Thanks.

Isn't there a way to move the clip to the left via keyboard without using clunky drag-and-drop?
