In Adobe Premiere, I need sometimes to add some small custom masks. And I need to zoom in the video frame in this case. The only option I found is to manually drug a video panel border.

enter image description here

Are there special hotkeys for these actions (zoom in and zoom out video frame)?

Yes, well not for zooming but for maximizing and restoring the panel. These shortcuts may look different depending on the keyboard layout. On English layouts it's ` for the active frame, which is the frame with the thin blue border drawn around, and Shift+` for the frame under the cursor. The ` character is called acute or backtick.

If you use another keyboard layout and the ` does not work or you want to change the shortcuts, go to Edit menu -> Keyboard Shortcuts... Search for Maximize and you'll get "Maximize or Restore Active Frame" and "Maximize or Restore Frame Under Cursor".

Also, you can set zoom-in/-out shortcuts for the program monitor, but it zooms into the video and doesn't make the panel larger. Those shortcuts are not set by default.

  • Yes, zoom-in/-out shortcuts for the program monitor is what I was looking for. Thanks! Jan 23, 2021 at 11:45
