Playback speed while editing?
on Jun 25, 2012 at 3:13:45 pm

I have many hours of footage to go through and I have to watch all of it to add in elements at the correct time. When I was on Sony Vegas I had a tool that let me watch the composition at a high speed without actually changing the speed of the composition. Does Premiere Pro have this tool and if so how can I use it?

You can use some shortcuts to playback faster than realtime without going so fast you can't understand the dialog.

Hit play, with either spacebar or L key to being playback.
Hold Shift key down, tap L and keep tapping L until the playback speed is where you have optimal clarity and speed.

(Recall how many times you tapped).

If you go too far tap J to pull back a speed.

You could go the other way which may be more efficient:
Tap L twice to go into 2x speed. Which will most likely be too fast.
Hold Shift and tap J a couple times to pull down the speed.

Hope this helps.

Thank you SO much - I don't know how people can edit in real time and why this information is so hidden in PP help and shortcuts. So a very big thank you!

Hi Jon,

Was doing some quick Googling to find out why Premiere was all of a sudden playing back my timeline at some wonky fast speed. I must have hit keys accidentally to bump it into a faster playback mode.

I can use your tips with J/K/L to change the playback rate, but how do I just get it back to the default. All my Premiere projects are now playing at a choppy incorrect speed and no amount of J/K/L-ing gets it back to normal.

Thanks so much for your help!
John

Hi. I just added a suggestion to address this issue in MAGIX Vegas PRO forum.

"Speed up/down timeline playback rate preserving pitch":
https://www.vegascreativesoftware.info/us/forum/suggestion-speed-up-down-ti...

If that suggestion (feature request) interest you, join the thread and provide further ideas and comments.
