Every slider in Motion has a track that it slides in.

Press the Option key while clicking on the track and you’ll change the value of the setting by one unit.

Click left of the slider to decrease the value, click right of the slider to increase the value.

Not all sliders support this, but most of them do.

Tip #129: Hover Scrub Tricks

Larry Jordan – https://LarryJordan.com

“Hovering” is the fastest way to view a clip.

Hover scrubbing is most valuable for quickly previewing the contents of a clip before you edit it into a sequence.

To “Hover Scrub” a clip, move (but do not click and drag) the cursor across a thumbnail in the Program panel. You can see the entire duration of a clip when hover scrubbing thumbnails left to right. When you move the mouse outside the boundaries of the clip, or focus is set away from the Project panel, the thumbnail resets to the poster frame. No audio is played during hover scrubbing.

  • To turn off Hover Scrub, press Shift + H.
  • When Hover Scrub is off, you can press the Shift key to temporarily enable Hover Scrubbing.
  • Use the keyboard shortcuts I and O to set In and Out points for the clip while hover scrubbing.
  • While hovering over a portion of a clip, double-click the icon, and the clip loads into the Source Monitor where the pointer was hovering. With this technique, Insert or Overwrite edits can be quickly made to the timeline.
