As you work in Adobe Premiere Pro, you’ll likely need to quickly move through the timeline. Whether to get to the next edit, move a few frames, or nudge a layer, there are some useful shortcuts to speed up the process.
Make sure the Timeline panel is selected for these shortcuts to work:
- Press the Right Arrow key to move forward one frame.
- Press the Left Arrow key to move backward one frame.
- Add the Shift key to jump five frames.
- Press – (minus key) to zoom out in the timeline.
- Press + (plus key) to zoom in the timeline.
- Select a clip and press Command (Mac OS) or Ctl (Windows) + Right Arrow to nudge it forward one frame. Add the Shift key to nudge it five frames. Use the Left Arrow key to move backwards.
- Select a clip and press Option (Mac OS) or Alt (Windows) + Up Arrow to nudge it forward up one track. Use the down arrow to nudge it down a track.
- Press the Down key to go to the next edit (track must be targeted).
- Press the Up key to go to the previous edit (track must be targeted).
