    Keyboard mapping

    Hi I'm using Adrenaline and there is a Picture in Picture effect that I use a lot. Is there a way of mapping this effect to a key?  It would make my editing easier and quicker!

    Not that I know of. Menu and button to button, but no effects.

    The effect palette is already Ctrl+8. If you want you can put effect palette onto a button by using the menu to button feature in your command palette.  But I don’t think there is a way to attach an individual effect to a button.

    If there is a particular pip you use a lot, you can stick the completed effect in a bin and use it from there.

    A good workaround would be to save your PIP effect to a bin, that way it's always there whenever you want it.

    Another alternative

    1) create a new bin name it exactly "Quick Transitions"
    2) alt+drag any saved/customized transition fx icon to the Quick Transitions bin -- It helps if you name the fx something special (ie PnP)
    3) now when you hit the Quick Transition button ("\" key) your customized fx will appear in the drop down allowing you to apply IN to OUT

    As long as the Quick Transitions bin is in the project, you will have access to them in the pulldown menu.

    This works a treat and is a cool shortcut.

    Re: Keyboard mapping

    Hey guys, first post. But it is such an urgent one that I really hope someone will come tothe rescue ;-)


    Since a more recent version (at least I guess so) there is a new tab in the command palette. I attached a screenshot.

    Now this had me all excited at first, because it suggests that we can map individual effects to a button and apply it to a clip via that shortcut. No need to dragging or double-clicking from bins and effect palette anymore!!!

    Well, problem is, this only works for two effects: Titler Pro and the Timecode Burn-in. Why is that? Can somebody figure this out?

    It would be so amazing if we could park the playhead on a clip, hit a single button and BOOM: Timewarp applied to that clip. 3D Warp applied to that clip. Stabilize applied to that clip.

    Whoever figures this out, I'm buying a bottle of wine. Great tasting wine, too!
