Keyboard shortcut for Effects & Presets PLEEEEEASE!!! : )
Hello. I'd like to see a master key to assign effects OR a way to map effects and presets to the keyboard using the Keyboard Shortcut tool.
I've submitted this request before having come from Final Cut Pro and it was a huuuuuge time saver for me in the editing process as I used this feature on FCP multiple multiple times on every single edit I did, every day, and I can't imagine others would not have the same reason for using it as me and I likely very frustrated at how long it takes to apply the Warp Stabiliser effect, for example, to a clip or a series of clips. This is a very consistent task that I do in every edit and many many times in each edit usually. I'm sure I'm not the only person who is constantly adding warp stabiliser to shots by dragging the thing onto every clip and then setting the smoothness percentage. I can't even manage to just select every clip I want to throw the stabiliser on to and then copy paste a version of the effect that I've set the smoothness percentage for. This can't be unusual. Any clip shot handheld with a dslr will need this, just about, if you want to get rid of that minor jitter. Many dslr users out there you reckon..?
I would love to see this, it is a massive massive time saver and I'm confident many many editors would need this feature for the same reason.
I also would love to see functionality so that when you stop your playhead over a clip during playback or by moving the playhead that it automatically selects that clip so that it's settings are ready to play with in the effect controls window. This seems so basic common sense to me to me and I'm trying not to get angry because I know you are good people in there, but it seems some mind numbingly obvious to me as an editor that you would want the clip that you are now looking at to be the one that is selected and presenting it parameters in the effect controls window. FCP did this automatically. PP will do this when the Lumetri Colour window is open...why not for Effect Controls??
Thank you, I appreciate you listening to my rant. I would be over the moon with these changes!!

This needs like 10 million votes. I have a standard set of transitions and FX that I use for almost every animation I do. Mapping a couple of them to shortcuts would be amazing. The few seconds and keystrokes it saves would really streamline my process. And it's not just about saving increments of time but also making the whole experience more seamless and less labor intensive. I do A LOT of After Effects work and it's getting really monotonous. I'm trying to consolidate as many things into shortcuts as possible just to make life easier.

for those of us who do this for a living, the ability (even through a customizable pallette) an effect to a KB shortcut would save HUNDREDS of hours a year.

Keyboard shortcuts for effects and presets: 665 votes
New Export interface that introduced over a dozens new bugs rather than fixing the 2-3 bugs of the perfectly adequate previous interface: 0 votes
Guess which one of these the Pr team decided to give us...
Yup, that's Adobe for you, a multi-billion dollar company with complete disregard for its users!
Just as a reminder, YOU DON'T NEED TO WAIT forever for the Pr team to give us this basic functionality. You can get all of this and more with the Excalibur plugin starting today! https://knightsoftheeditingtable.com/excalibur
It works amazingly well and I've already created dozens of keyboard shortcuts and macros with it. Since using it, I almost never use the Effect window anymore. Keyboard shortcuts are SO much faster!
Here are some examples of my keyboards shortcuts created with Excalibur:
Crop - Ctrl+Shift+C
Blur - Ctrl+Shift+B
Warp Stabilizer (50%) - Ctrl+Shift+W
Warp Stabilizer Lite (5% preset) - Ctrl+Alt+W
Show Guides - Alt+G (works no matter which window is active!)
Show Rulers - Alt+R (works no matter which window is active!)
Activate Direct Manipulation in Program Monitor - M (works no matter which window is active!)
RESIZE ALL selected clips:
Increase by 1%: Ctrl+Shift+=
Increase by 10%: Ctrl+Shift+Alt+=
Decrease by 1%: Ctrl+Shift+-
Decrease by 10%: Ctrl+Shift+Alt+-
MOVE ALL selected clips:
Left by 5 points - Ctrl+Shift+Left Arrow
Left by 25 points - Ctrl+Shift+Alt+Left Arrow
Right by 5 points - Ctrl+Shift+Right Arrow
Right by 25 points - Ctrl+Shift+Alt+Right Arrow
Up by 5 points - Ctrl+Shift+Up Arrow
Up by 25 points - Ctrl+Shift+Alt+Up Arrow
Down by 5 points - Ctrl+Shift+Down Arrow
Down by 25 points - Ctrl+Shift+Alt+Down Arrow
Anyway, I think you get the point!
Excalibur not only allows you to assign shortcuts to ALL of your effects, transitions and presets, but it also allows you to 'fix' the horrendously crippled shortcuts that Adobe gives us such as 'Show Guides' and 'Show Rulers' that ONLY work if a specific window is active. With simple 2-3 step macros, you can fix these poorly designed shortcuts so that they work no matter which window is active! (see illustration for my solution to fix the "Activate Direct Manipulation in Program Monitor" shortcut that idiotically only works if the Timeline is the active window)
The bottom line is we need to depend on 3rd party plug-ins to fill in the gaps since the Pr team simply cares more about their ego-driven pet projects than they care about us users. I can't imagine using Pr without Excalibur. It's a massive time (and sanity) saver!

Come on Adobe! It's time to make this happen!

We're at the point where we can auto caption, but can't key bind presets or effects. Adobe in a nutshell.

Expanding keyboard shorcut availability is essential. Please add this feature. Especially, I'd like the lumetri controls to be available to shortcut (eg. a key to increase shadow slider value by 1) and clip properties to be available (eg. a key to increase clip scale value by 1%).

Please make this happen! :)

4 years and nobody still answered. In the meantime i switched to davinci.

What Adobe (and their reps) *aren't* saying is that it pays much better to license this functionality to product makers (Loupedeck, Tangent, et al) instead of making it easy for users to simply access effects via shortcuts. There's no money in letting us use shortcuts to control Lumetri, but there is a LOT of money in aftermarket controllers.

As an Adobe rep and employee Kevin, do you mean to say that even at 638 votes as of Feb 2, 2022, Adobe won't take this idea seriously because it hasn't garnered enough votes?! (keeping it "Under Review" for another 3 years?)
I know you're trying to encourage people to participate, but a message like that coming from an Adobe employee actually has the reverse effect for myself, one of the biggest contributors of new ideas on this platform. It sounds like we should all just give up and not participate since getting Adobe to listen to us is utterly hopeless... hopeless to the point that even 600+ votes is still not enough to get them to pay attention beyond an empty "Under Review" status from nearly 3 years ago. If that's the case, what chance in **** do perfectly legitimate ideas with less than 100 votes have of ever seeing the light of day?
I know that's not what you meant by your post, but it certainly does seem odd to hear an Adobe rep encouraging us to upvote, rather than simply stating something along the lines of: "We're looking into it. Won't be much longer now" Now THAT would be a LOT more encouraging than hearing that our 638 votes still aren't enough to be taken seriously. :(
It's time for Adobe to get real and stop treating its users like this!
By the way, as I've pointed out before a couple of times, this functionality is ALREADY available through the fantastic Excalibur plugin I beta tested extensively for the programmer. It isn't free, but well worth the cost. Native solutions are almost always preferable however.

Cool idea. Let's make it happen, people. Upvote!

Adobe is an incredible company BUT if they're listening...we need this...as others have said, Premiere is amazing from a quality perspective but the number 1 thing editors want is to reduce editing time and my past 4 month project could have been done in less than 2 if this existed.
victor ramos commented
Any update from adobe on this topic? Come on!! Its been 3 years, Is that dificult?
Anyone knows if Davinci Resolve have this feature?
tommo tommo commented
Wow, I'm just getting into PP and this functionality would have cut my editing time down 75% for the effects I'm using. Very disheartening to see Adobe doesn't think this is important. This feature seems like table stakes, especially for folks working with lots of effects or 360 video.
Brandon Carter commented
As others have said, this is a must have feature. Please add this @Adobe.
Mike Lisii commented
I agree this is a must have functionality but for the time I am using Excalibur plugin. It has a price (75) but belive me I am using it hundres of times per day (adding any effects or creating shortcuts for specific effects) or fill frame Its awesome but I wish Adobe would bring shortcut natively to effects and presets.
Nico Bekasinski commented
Guys at Premiere. Do you even want us to use this product?? This feature is a must have..
Ahmet Bice commented
I would like to be able to create hotkeys for certain effects in the keyboard shortcuts, so that the effect of the associated key can be applied to the selected clip
