change AE's Timestep default?
on May 25, 2013 at 11:25:56 pm

I have asked this question before and never found a solution. I'm working in a 25fps project and the 10-frame 'ctrl-shift-rightarrow' shortcut is prettymuch useless because it doesn't divide easily into 25fps comp time. I want to change the prefs file to jump in 5frame increments (instead of 10). I can find the shortcut in the shortcuts file, but can't find ANYTHING in the prefs file. I searched for 'step time' 'time' 'ctrl-shift' etc and no dice. Is it possible to change this? Below is a section of the shortcuts file.

"TimeFastForward" = "(Ctrl+Alt+RightArrow)(END)"
"TimeJumpToIn" = "(I)"
"TimeJumpToNextInOut" = "(Ctrl+Alt+Shift+RightArrow)"
"TimeJumpToOut" = "(O)"
"TimeJumpToPrevInOut" = "(Ctrl+Alt+Shift+LeftArrow)"
"TimeJumpToWAEnd" = "(Shift+END)"
"TimeJumpToWAStart" = "(Shift+HOME)"
"TimePlay" = "(Space)"
"TimeRewind" = "(Ctrl+Alt+LeftArrow)(HOME)"
"TimeSetIn" = "([)"
"TimeSetOut" = "(])"
"TimeStepBack" = "(Ctrl+LeftArrow)(PageUP)"
"TimeStepBackMore" = "(Shift+PageUP)(Ctrl+Shift+LeftArrow)"
"TimeStepForward" = "(Ctrl+RightArrow)(PageDOWN)"
"TimeStepForwardMore" = "(Shift+PageDOWN)(Ctrl+Shift+RightArrow)"
"TimeStretchIn" = "(Ctrl+Shift+Comma)"
"TimeStretchOut" = "(Ctrl+Alt+Comma)"
"TimeTrimIn" = "(Alt+[)"
"TimeTrimOut" = "(Alt+])"

No, there is no way to change this now. If you'd like a way to change it, submit a feature request here:
