A button? 16 Sep 2019 16:40 #101459

Can someone please remind me of the command that makes FCPX automatically skip to the next clip when you are watching them in the Viewer? At the moment the playhead just stops at the end of the clip and I have to manually click on the next clip to watch. Thank you !

Sorry for the inane question x

Arrow down jumps to the next clip, arrow up to the previous. Certain things are faster without mouse. Also: use the JKL keys! K=pause; L=play; LL=play double speed (asf); J=play backwards.

K + L = half speed forward, J + K half speed backwards

Hey Thanks Andreas
I didn't know about half speed 2 key presses.
Glad to learn new stuff.

Happy Editing, Greg

Besides the answer given, there are many commands for defining multiple ranges in the browser and navigating between them: support.apple.com/kb/PH12533?locale=en_US&viewlocale=en_US

There is one little quirk: SHIFT+O is supposed to go to the end of the range selection and repeating it should go to the end of the next range selection. But in this one case you have to step forward one frame so you're past the out point and then use Shift-O. Thanks to Tom Wolsky for pointing this out.
