Hi there,

 

i still try to figure out, wether i can work with After Effects on a Windows PC while i use a Mac Keyboard and the standard Mac Shortcuts.

The main problem for me is, that the standard shortcuts on the "Windows"-After Effects version are not the same as in the "Mac"-After Effects version.

(For example: set a Rotation Keyframe: WIN= Shift+Alt+R / MAC= Alt+R)

 

Would be happy about every idea!

 

Thanks a lot,

kind regards

Nothing to do with the keyboard. Some stuff is simply hard-wired differently on Windows and the operating system itself already uses global shortcuts. Outside the options the keyboard editor offers this can't be changed and it is in fact outside the control of the Adobe devs just as well. You will have to adapt.
