A small discovery

Today I happened to find a new useful shortcut in Premiere Pro, even though I thought that I knew them all – well, almost. It turns out, that the backslash key (“\”) not only zooms your timeline out to allow you to see the whole sequence (FCP equivalent is Shift+Z), but it also remembers the zoom ratio when it was first pressed. So you can not only zoom out, but then move your playhead (CTI) to a different spot, press backslash again, and voila! You’re back at the zoom level that you started from. A neat small feature that can sometimes help us navigate through the timeline faster.
