FEATURE REQUEST: < Prev / Next > Left / Right clip advance control buttons

Dear Adobe...

 

For the love of God, please have your devs write the code for there to be left / right clip advance buttons present on their respective sides of the source monitor window.

 

When I go to Facebook and click on a picture, I'm then able to (without having to leave the enlarged picture window) click on either the left or right arrow buttons at the edges of the window to either advance to the next picture or go back to the previous one. This feature 100% needs to exist inside of the source monitor window in Premiere Pro.

 

It is an absolute pain (and a complete workflow momentum killer) when, if I'd like to peruse a large number of clips quickly, I have to switch back to the tab containing the clips and click on the next one I'd like to see instead of being able to just click a button already in my active source monitor window (or use the keyboard arrows) to advance to the next or previous clip / pic.

 

Seems like an easy fix. Love you guys.

Most of the professional video post folk I know absolutely teach getting keyboard shorts ingrained as that is by far the fastest way to work.

 

Watching someone like Christine Steele or @Jarle Leirpoll blast through a project, jumping panel to panel, making cuts, blasting them to a sequence, adding effects ... you can't keep up with everything they are doing, it's so fast.

I'm a keyboard shorts ninja.

 

I'm also positive that my request would definitely improve workflow when sorting through a large number of clips. Having to switch panels is a completely unnecessary step (or would be) if this feature was implemented. Even having to mouse up to the source monitor pull down contextual menu (where previous clips are listed) is a pain. I simply want to rest my left hand on the space bar and my right over the left / right arrows and jam through a ton of clips without ever moving my hands (to grab the mouse, tab through, etc.).

 

Make it happen, Adobe.

OK.

 

So assigning keyboard shortcuts to advance to next / previous clips already loaded in the source monitor window is the answer, although it shouldn't be because it's still a clunky solution. You still have to select the clips you want loaded in the source monitor beforehand (as opposed to being able to just select a single clip in an active bin and then, once that's loaded into the source monitor, be able to scroll through the rest of the clips in that bin).

 

It should treat multiple open timelines the same, as well; have left / right arrows in the program monitor also and have them assigned to step through each open TL on a loop.
