Analysis/Reflection 4 Film/TV 2 Question 2

Most applications reserve keyboard shortcuts for the functions that you use most often. It is really good to learn all of these as it will speed up your editing and additionally alert you to functions that the software developers and other users find important. (You can learn much about the software by looking at keyboard shortcuts).

Find the keyboard shortcuts for Premiere (hint, film-tv blog) and note four or more functions that you’ve never used before and why they may be invaluable to your editing. (Different functions to what you wrote last semester)

Adobe Premiere Pro Shortcuts

Cmd+/: (Adds a New Bin). This function helps great with Premiere Pro workflow especially during clip consolidation and Ingestion as it allows users to promptly create a Bin where they may be able to classify and sort their various clips of footage on the fly

Cmd+S: (Save project File). It goes without saying what the importance of saving your file is; This shortcut helps greatly with workflow as it allows users to quickly save their file as they continually progress on their clip. It saves the hassle of having to access the save function via the Apple Toolbar allowing users to continue editing without having to think twice about saving

Cmd+D(Add Video Transition). This function allows users to add a video transition at the point of cursor on their sequence between their clips. This helps greatly in workflow as it saves the trouble of having to sieve through the various effects Adobe has in order to find the appropriate video transitions. In documentary filmmaking, this function may prove more vital than most as transitions between interview segments are necessary and in the process of continual editing, quick access to this feature can prove a great advantage in terms of efficiency and ease of work.

Cmd+0(Playback Full Resolution) When reviewing a completed sequence or playback of a particular clip, this shortcut helps switch Premiere’s playback resolution to full so users can preview the actual resolution of their finally exported work. This helps when there is confusion in the final outcome of a piece in terms of its visual clarity and can help users make a quick reference to ensure the resolution of their sequence/final film. Additionally, when used with the following shortcut appendices of 2/4/8 the user can switch back to resolutions of  0.5/0.25/0.125 of the full resolution to continue with their editing work.
