    Anyone know the shortcut to go to the next video frame in photoshop?

    I’m MUCH more efficient at painting in photoshop than afx, but its annoying having to click on the ‘next frame I>’ button. I’ve been searching for this shortcut on and off for a while, but can’t find it. Such a simple shortcut, and its kinda crippling without it.

    it seems like an obvious useful thing but i don’t think it’s there. i ended up recording a couple of simple actions/commands to just step forward one and back one frame and assigned it to F3 & F4 keys so i can easily just toggle fore/back 1 frame with my left hand and roto w/the right. it works fine and photoshop is actually quite good for that kind of manual task.

    Great suggestion.

    If it isn’t there, there is always someone who thought of a workaround.

    Thanks Ronaldo!!!

    Hi Nicolas,

    I read this in the manual:

    Note: Some shortcuts need to be enabled. Choose Enable Timeline Shortcut Keys from the Animation (Timeline) panel menu.
