  • Is there keyboard shortcuts for event pan/crop and also skip to next segment?

    That is, the next segment on the video timeline. So that I don’t have to click on the event pan/crop icon on each segment? I have to change the framing on every segment on my timeline.

    To go to the next clip in your timeline you can tap the right square bracket ” ] “.

    To open pan/crop you have to create a new keybind as there isn’t one set by default. Go to Options -> Customize Keyboard and search for “pancrop” in the top field and make sure to select the “Global” tab. Then select “Tools.Video.VideoEventPanCrop” from the list, click in the Shortcut keys field and make up your keybind. It will show any potential conflicts at the bottom. Press Add and OK. I’ve set mine to Ctrl+W as it’s a function I use often and it’s right where my hand usually rests on the keyboard.
    In addition I suggest you save this as a custom keyboard map at the top!

    Also if you have to change framing for multiple segments for the same amount you can copy and paste the transforms. So Copy a clip that has the transforms, select the clips you want to paste these properties to, right click on them and look for “Selectively Paste Event Attributes”. Then from the list select “Video event pan/crop settings”.
    Might not work properly if the footage differs in resolution/aspect ratio.
