premiere pro jog wheel

I’m trying to use one of my dial knob on my controller to step through the video frame by frame as you normally do with a jog wheel controller. I can figure it out how to do it but I can’t. Can someone here point me to the right discussion or give me some advice? Thank you!

Hi Steve,

I solved the problem changing the settings of my dial knob from absolute value to relative. That way, turning left will send always the same value so I can assign it directly to my keystroke. Same story if I turn right. Thank you that you let me think about the absolute value!!! And thank you for your idea. It may come in handy next time.

Glad to have helped. Yes endless relative encoders are best for this type of application if you have them.

Hi, from your answer it appears that your knob is sending absolute values 0-127 on cc101.

If this is the case, there are a few options

  1.  Left/Right of center.  In this option if you move the knob right of center it we set a timer to output continuous right arrow until you move it back to center. If you turn to left of center, we output continuous left arrow until you move it back to center. That way you never have to worry about running into an end point and not being able to turn the knob further. In my mind this is he cleanest option but there are a few things to consider. One is how fast to send out arrow keys.  Faster makes it more responsive but you can sometimes overshoot your target. The other is how much wiggle room do you want on your center point.
  2. Temporary suspend method – In this scenario, when you get to an end point you push and hold  a button them move the knob to the other end, temporarily disabling movement. You then release the button and now you have more room to move the knob in the direction you want. Of course this requires another controller.
  3. Reverse direction.  In this scenario you reverse the action of the direction when you hit the end points so that when you get to the end (say to the right),  left becomes right and right becomes left. Of course there would need to be a way to manually switch this behaviour if things get messed up. Perhaps another button. Basically some form of re-calibration.

There are probably more options but this is what comes to mind right now.  Now if you have a knob that buts out relative messages such as 65 for any turn right and 63 for any turn left or maybe 1 for right and 127 for left, then it becomes much easier since there are no end points. So if you can program your knob this way, it is your best bet. Let me know what option looks most appealing to you.

Hi Steve, sorry for the late reply. What the knob sends is a Control Change (cc101) and I would like to scroll frame by frame through the timeline (left arrow/right arrow). I thought it’s something I can achieve using the RULES. Like comparing the values and if the value is > it means it has to go forward (keystroke: right arrow) if it’s < it has to go backward (keystroke: left arrow). I watched your tutorial but as long as I’m using a mac it doesn’t work for me. The x, y positioning is not an option in my case (I move quite a lot the windows around). In one of your post, I found something that maybe can work for me ( https://www.bome.com/support/kb/problem-with-dial-behavior?backlink=L3N1cHBvcnQva2I%3D ). Do you think it’s the right way to go?

Thank you for your support and fantastic software Steve. I’m quite slow to reply but I’m super interested in solving this issue.

Hi,

I think I did something similar in the below tutorial. If you are still stuck after reviewing this tutorial, please post your project file here and I will have a look.  Could you tell me what your knob sends when turning it and what the respective Adobe Premier Pro application expects in the way of a keystroke?  I can look it up but knowing both the incoming message and the expected outgoing message should speed things up.
