I've got a mouse which has three keys on the left side which are not in use.
I want to use them to go a frame forward or backward so I went into the shortcut menu. I tried to set this mouse keys as a shortcut but it seems like Premiere Pro doesn't recognize any of my mouse keys
Premiere Pro has no way to change mouse buttons.
There is a game-controller mapping program that might work for you ... Xpadder ... you can go look it up.
It's around $10USD, and can map a lot of controls from gamer controls to mice & such to keys or combinations. I saw it yesterday, on another forum, from someone who is now editing using an X-box game controller and used this to set it all up. I'm thinking about getting it myself ...
autohotkey is free and easy/powerful to use. re-map/script mouse/keyboard/joystick etc.
My Mouse has its own software that maps button functions to any of the short Cuts in Premiere ( and other applications)
Basically all it does is map any combination of keyboard "keys" to any button...and these of course are what Shortcut Keys are.
thanks man. after 6 years 🙂
