I’ve gotten a few questions about my keyboard layout, and what shortcuts I use, on a day to day editing basis. Believe it or not, I don’t use a ton of keyboard shortcuts, as the ones that I use are precise, serve a very specific purpose (speed up my overall workflow), and don’t take long to set up, this way, if I take them on the road with me, I’m set up and running in no time flat! Enjoy!
