K = Play / Pause
If the video is already playing:
L = Play 2x
LL = Play 4x
LLL = Loops back to playing at 1x speed.
L = Rewind 2x
LL = Rewind Play 4x
LLL = Loops back to playing backwards @ 1x speed.
If the video is already playing, the first press of L or J will be 2x speed.
Note, you should be able to hear the audio as this happens and it should be pitch adjusted as you do so.
I know your suggestions are offered with the best of intentions. I’ve seen you offer this advice on several occasions.
Which puzzles me a bit. You cannot possibly edit
videos effectively, in either manner you describe. I think it’s a misguided suggestion
every time I read them.
It makes me wonder if you’ve ever used a program with fast timeline playback controls? Here’s why I say this.
I made a demo of how Premiere Pro handles timeline playback. Adobe’s other programs, Sony Vegas, DeVinchi Resolve, and others use the same keyboard shortcuts for timeline playback.
Rendering an entire video to mp4 is time consuming just for starters. Then, if you watch a section you might want to use in a video, or remove. With clip speed applied for high speed playback, the entire clip is kind of useless for scrutinized viewing purposes.
How would you know you truly “liked/didn’t like” a particular section of clip?
If the audio sounded like a chipmunk, and the action was moving very fast. You can't tell what happened in the scene definitively. Plus, you’re stuck with one speed of playback and in one direction.
That’s not what fast playback is for.
There's a slow motion playback option as well. I didn't show that feature.
Applying and un-applying clip speed constantly? Well, that's a possibility. But it’s less than fluid editing. I wouldn’t do it
Screencast wouldn’t let me upload a video tonight so I settled for Vimeo.
Please can we have this functionality?
