AE controls query / PC and MAC
on Aug 29, 2012 at 11:34:43 am

Hi --- anybody familiar with using AE on MAC and PC who can please advise on whether or not the controls are the same .


I was wondering if I would be able to use AE on MAC as usual ?

I have no experience of MACs whatsoever ..... all I know is that they have an 'apple' key ...

Any thoughts on this will be much appreciated.

I believe the shortcuts are mostly if not completely identical. The few times I've had to go cross-platform, I don't recall any shortcuts not working right. The basic conversion to remember:

CTL = Command
ALT = Option

One caveat: The modifier keys are in slightly different positions, so that may slow you down a little. Many's the time I hit the Windows key while my hands were running on shortcut autopilot.

More fun, too.

One other minor difference is the location of the Preferences menu item.

On Windows its at the bottom of the Edit menu, on the its on the After Effects menu which is just to the left of the File menu.
