Premiere Pro Tips: Keyboard shortcuts of the week
At this point in its life, Premiere Pro has hundreds of keyboard shortcuts and adding any new ones as defaults no doubt take a lot of internal discussions.
There are several essential keyboard shortcuts that are good to know about such as up/down arrows to move between edit points (while respecting track targeting), ‘D’ to select clips beneath the play head, home/end to move to the beginning and end of the timeline, etc.
The one that I wanted to share today though is around increasing or decreasing the track height of either an audio or video track. Depending on the task at hand as well as the screen resolution, the track height can be important for conveying information to the editor.
They keyboard shortcut for increasing video track height is cmd/ctrl and ‘+’, decreasing is cmd/ctrl and ‘-‘. Cmd is Mac, Ctrl is PC.
For audio height it is much the same except Alt/Option and the aforementioned +/-.
Give it a try the next time you’re editing!
