Zoom Shortcuts

PostThu Jan 23, 2020 10:41 pm

I like the new Full Extent Zoom and Detail Zoom options for the timeline.

Could we get shortcuts for them as well?

Shift-z always worked fine for me. I don't understand what these new buttons add.

They work differently.

Use Shift+Z to see the entire timeline, then click the Full Extent Zoom. You may well see a slight change, with the latter better filling the available space.

The Detail Zoom seems to be a preset Zoom level independent of the length of the timeline and well suited to trimming at the frame level.

I find them useful. I think shortcuts would be even better.

+1 on shortcuts for these Zoom buttons. Even if they're not out of the box, at least allow us to create custom shortcuts. Thanks!

I'm glad someone else thought of that too! I can't believe the guy who said he doesn't understand what these new buttons add... seriously?? For an editor who values their time, being able to quickly zoom in and out on the timeline is KEY. Being able to assign keyboard shortcuts to the detail zoom will add A LOT because it's an action I do at least a dozen times per minute when I'm cutting.

So yes - please add shortcuts for the different zoom levels. The fact that those buttons are put right in the middle of the screen tells you that even the BMD team thought they were important. Why they didn't add the option to assign keyboard shortcuts to them is a mystery to me.

I can’t believe the guy that read my post and didn’t try shift-z.

Of course I zoom in and out of the timeline all the time, and I use a shortcut to do it!

Shift-z toggles between full timeline view and custom. If you want it to toggle between full and detail, all you have to do is set your custom to detail. The buttons on the UI are just visual clutter, IMO.

I’m not opposed to adding shortcuts to the UI buttons, I’m just saying there’s already a solution and development resources might be better spent on more pressing matters… the abysmal state of keyframing being the top of my personal priority list.

p.s. The next time you disagree with me, feel free to quote me, so that I might receive notification, and provide a rebuttal in a more timely fashion.

We can't toggle between Custom and Detail. Nor can we go from Detail back to Custom. And the Full view offered by Shift+Z isn't the same as that offered by Full Extent Zoom.

I still believe these shortcuts will add efficiency to our work.
