This is a list of the keyboard shortcuts that I use most frequently in my day to day editing that help me edit faster. I’m a big fan of keyboard shortcuts. Many commands have keyboard shortcut equivalents, so we can complete tasks with minimal use of the mouse.
Of course, these are the default keyboard shortcuts that come standard in Premiere Pro CC. However, if you’re coming to Premiere Pro CC from another Non-linear editing software, you can set shortcuts to match shortcuts in other software you use.
