View Full Version : How to see a list of all the key commands? Skip frame RAM preview?

Hi folks,

I'm an After Effects guy who's picking up Combustion, and I've got two quick questions.

First, is there a list somewhere of all the key commands available in the program? It seems like the quick reference card is a little thin.

Secondly, is there a way to skip frames when RAM previewing (hitting enter)? I'm hoping there's something like After Effect's shift+0.

Thanks!

You are not to first person to ask for a list of the HotKeys...
I created one and shared it below...

As for "skipping frames" in the Ram Player: No, Not that i know of...

As for the hotkeys: this is a partial list of all of the Combustion Hotkeys. I have included the full list in my Combustion Training Book, "Combustion V2: the On-Line Webwarrior Guide." (see below for info.)
