  • BUG? Remapping “Zoom In” and “Zoom Out” changes zoom behavior

    Just discovered what I’m assuming is a bug. Is anyone else seeing this, or can they replicate it?

    PROBLEM:
    By default, Zoom In and Zoom Out are mapped to Cmd+ and Cmd- and when activated they zoom in and out around the playhead.

    Remapping Zoom In and Zoom Out to the Up and Down arrows results in random zooming. It no longer zooms around the playhead. See the video below for a demonstration.

    SYSTEM SPECS:
    5K iMac, 27-inch, Late 2014
    4GHz Intel Core i7
    32GB RAM
    AMD M295X 4GB graphics card
    OS 10.10.5 Yosemite
    FCPX 10.2.2

    FCPX Zoom – possible bug

    Michael – I cannot replicate this on my system. I have zoom mapped to the slash and asterisk keys on my numeric keypad and it works as it’s supposed to.

    Thank you Nick. I just mapped Zoom In/Zoom Out to the Asterisk and Slash to test that it and it works as expected. This leads me to believe it’s not an issue with remapping Zoom In/Zoom Out, but an issue with mapping it to the Up and Down arrows.

    Do you mind mapping Zoom In/Out to Up/Down arrow to test it?

    I’m just heading out but I’ll give it a shot when I get back.

    I think the up and down keys are still looking at the next and previous edit commands as well as your added zoom commands.

    It’s definitely doing something. I’m sending them a bug report. I’ve mapped Zoom In/Out to multiple keys at this point and all of them work just fine, except for Up and Down.

    I have up/down mapped to the clip height (chicklet view through waveform only view) and it doesn’t have any issues.

    UPDATE: The bug still exists in FCPX 10.3. Remapping Zoom In/Out to the Up/Down arrow results in erratic zoom behavior.
