Is there a way to playback at 150%

Postby RickTarrant » Thu Jan 29, 2015 18:17

I see that with my TANGO controller I can rotate the jog wheel and get 150% playback as long as I continue the rotation.
Also I've tried the shuttle slider on the transport section of PMX and it will playback at 125% for a few seconds.
Is there a playback setting somewhere so I can listen to dialog faster than real time (without wearing my wrist out)?

You might try enabling the "Shuttle when more than 10 seconds shown the Timeline" option in the Jog/Shuttle settings. Of course, this means you may have to zoom out. You might want to play about with of the Jog, Shuttle and Navigate sensitivity values. There's also the Job Speed ceiling.

Conversely, there is the Scan Back/Forward (CTRL+F7 or F8 or NUM keyboard 1 and 2, 3 is Play, 0 is Stop) option, which zips through the material audibly.

Then there's the Machines menu > Active Machine > Play Special > Play 2x or Reverse 2x or Play 4x or Reverse 4x - any of which are just begging for a keyboard shortcut.

None of these will give you 150% specifically, but perhaps you might accommodate to the faster speeds.
