I just unpacked and installed my brand new Shuttle today and it works and I like it.
(If somebody comes to this forum and is just looking for setup-instructions, here is the link:
Personally, I never need play backwards (button 6) and I do not need play forward (button 8) because that is already/also on button 7 and on the very accessible space-bar of my keyboard.
But what I often need on long videos is a quick jump to the very beginning (ALT + left) or the very end to save time. So I put those on button 6 and 8 for now.
I also wonder why tin2tin left the positions for the two most extreme shuttle turns (left and right) “blank” by just repeating the J and L commands. Any user with more experience wants to comment?
I guess that each power user who spends a lot of time with Shotcut and who is spending money for a Shuttle thingy, might be rather opiniated about best workflow and personal best button-settings.
So I am not looking for “better” or “correct” settings, but I would love if other users would share here what they are doing and how it does make their work more efficient and more fun.
