Tip #045: Preview Faster
In this case, it’s OK – and fast! – to “play around.”
This is a very fast way to preview a transition.
Using the arrow keys, position the playhead on the transition you want to preview.
Press Shift + K.
Instantly, the playhead backs up a few seconds, plays through the position of the playhead, then stops a few seconds afterward.
You can set how far back or forward the playhead moves with this shortcut using Preferences > Playback:
- Preroll. Sets how far back the playhead starts.
- Postroll. Sets how for past the playhead position the playback ends.
By increasing these durations you can use this technique to preview short segments, not just transitions.
