Hi,
Does anyone know if After Effects has a hotkey for letting you move the playhead forward/back by entering values as opposed to scrubbing?

Say you've added a in keyframe then you know you want the end keyframe one second later, can you type this in rather than manually moving the playhead.

In FCP you type + or - then the value. Just hoping AFX has this functionality too, would save me about 2 mins a day approx :)

Hi there. If I understood you correctly:

Page Up and Page Down

and

Ctrl + left or right

Adding SHIFT before those move you 10 frames instead of 1.


Also another great shortcut: F1

Hope it helps.

Cheers.

You can also click the current time indicator and type new time or a time to add or subtract by puting a + or - sign before the value.



Cheers once again.

For a list of all of the ways to move the CTI, see "Move the current-time indicator (CTI)".
