Arrow key timeline adjustment

  1. What do you want to see in Hype?
    Ability to adjust playhead position using arrow keys. Sometimes I need to make fine adjustments to the playhead position. Wish I could fine-control the playhead using a combination of arrow keys and function keys to change step over amount. R= 1 frame. Shift+R = 10 frames for example.

  2. Have you found a workaround for this problem?
    I find I have to zoom in.

  3. Are there examples of other apps with this feature? Or, have you seen examples of this elsewhere on the web? (Please include a URL)

  • Final Cut Pro
  • Blender ( has a context specific mode where when mouse is over timeline arrow keys can nudge timeline.

You can change the playhead position one frame with the command-left/right keys. If you hold down shift it will go back/forth by one second.

There is no need to give focus or mouse over; if focus is given then normal left/right arrows will move selected animations/keyframes.

There’s a complete listing in the Keyboard Shortcuts section of the documentation.
