Is there a keyboard shortcut to bring the CTI back to the start of my video instead of grabbing it and pulling it back ?
No, but you could place a marker at the beginning of the video and use one of the Timeline Shortcuts:
Go to Timeline Marker > Next
Go to Timeline Marker > Previous
Go to Timeline Marker > Numbered
Ok.. Im just learning Premiere... I will try using markers on my next video. seems like there should be a quick way to 'return to start' but this is helpful. thank you Peru Bob.
Thanks Ann.. I work on an iMac and don't have a "home" key .. but I googled it and found the apple keyboard shortcut for it. I learn something new every day !
Thanks for telling all of us what the shortcut key was.
