Hi Guys

Simple answer I'm sure but what keys do you hold down along with an arrow to slightly move over audio, titles, etc on your timeline?

Thanks

You mean to play slower than normal. I use right arrow or K and L together.

Yes, learn the J-K-L key system! It's a huge time saver.

• Awareness nubs are on F and J keys so they're easy to find, find the J key with your finger.
• Your other fingers fall naturally on K and L keys.
• K in the middle is stop, or slow.
• J is to the left, so plays backward to the left in a Timeline.
• L is to the right, so plays forwards on the Timeline.
• Tap either J or L again to play 2x speed, again for 4X speed, again for 8x speed, etc.
• Hold K while using J or L to play in slow motion.

Hi, thanks for getting back to me.

I was more looking how to shift over audio or a shot by a frame each time rather than dragging.

Once the clip is highlighted, you hold the left or right arrow key with another button but I'm not sure what.

Do you know what I mean?

Thanks again

As Tom said. I remember them as the < and > keys, the "frame adjustment" arrow keys.
