Frame Advance missing on the transport bar - how do I get it back?

ken-dehoff wrote on 11/4/2018, 3:52 PM


A prior version 'bug' is that the next frame/previous frame buttons on the timeline require tedious clicking for every frame, while older versions of vegas pro would continue with click and hold. Fortunately for Vegas Pro 15, the Transport bar versions of these keys worked 'correctly' ie click and hold would continue to move the cursor.

But in Vegas Pro 16 the Frame advance/reverse buttons are missing - is there a way to get these back or some other mouse button to do frame advance/reverse with a single mouse click?

Note that alt-left and alt-right do not play every frame - skips frames.

I don't use 16 so don't kknow about missing buttons, but CTRL-ALT right or left moves one frame. or better yet, get a device like the Contour Shuttle.

Click the "hamburger", which is 3 horizontal lines to the right of the transport bar. Then choose "Edit visible button set", then check "Previous Frame" and "Next Frame" and click OK.

Further to that, in VP10 & VP12, if you click and hold on the "Previous Frame"/"Next Frame" buttons in the Timeline Toolbar, they continue to move the cursor in the same way as those buttons on the Video Preview Window Button Bar. That functionality was lost from VP13 onwards. The VP16 Help for the Timeline Toolbar still says "Click and hold the Previous Frame and Next Frame buttons to move the cursor multiple frames.", hence it's a bug.
