Adding chapters - arrow key playback speed? Zoom?

Post by outdoorben » Fri Nov 08, 2019 2:07 am

Hi --

New to the software. One thing that I find really frustrating is trying to add chapters at exactly the right point I want them in a very long video. I either drag the slider (too fast, so not accurate), or use the right/left arrow keys (same problem) and there is no way to zoom in the timeline.

Questions:

1. Is there any way to get the forward/reverse playback using the arrow keys to slow down? As in just real time playback instead of skipping?

2. Does anyone know if there are plans to add a zoom feature?

The above have a very negative effect on my productivity. I edit lots of videos of community musicals, and I want the chapters to be in very exact positions. Thank you!

-Ben

Chapter points are always problematic since it all depends on key frames.
