The Source Monitor and Program Monitor contain several controls that resemble the playback controls on a video deck. Use the Source Monitor controls to play or cue a clip. Use the Program Monitor controls to play or view the active sequence.
Most playback controls have keyboard equivalents. When you want to use keyboard shortcuts to control playback, make sure that the monitor you want is active. Click the video image in the monitor you want to activate.
The playback controls are customizable with the use of the Button Editor. If the button you wish to use is not available, click the “+” sign in the lower right of the monitor. After the Button Editor launches, you can drag the button of your choice into the button bar. For more information see Customizing the monitor panel button bar.
