How to use Control Keyboard Shortcuts

This article refers to the use of keyboard shortcuts in Pixera Control, there are 3 types of shortcuts in Pixera


Edit: Opens the window in which shortcuts can be edited.

Export: Exports the current settings as a .json file. It can also be saved in this

Import: Imports a .json file with the shortcut settings.

Activate checkbox: Is activating or deactivating all Control Keyboard Shortcuts



for test purposes i have created two modules here a logger and a new one with an action with attribute


To assign the shortcut to the action Testing.test open the edit window and enter it there.


In Shortcuts we enter which shortcut we want to use, it can be single letters or combinations. It can be separated with + or with space. Upper and lower case is ignored


In Action we enter which control action should be used.


The Parameters are the ones that are passed into the action, here the value 55 and a true is passed to save the value.


In Tabs we can filter in which area of Pixera we want to use it and where not, if this is empty we can use it everywhere. It can be separated with , or with space


If we now press ctrl+k on my keyboard this function is executed with the set settings



As another example here I trigger timeline 1 play with ctrl+1. 
We use the action: Pixera.Compound.setTransportModeOnTimelineAtIndex with paramter 0,1

This allows me to trigger timeline 1 with ctrl+1, this only works when I am in the compositing or control tab. Parameters are passed 0 for the first timeline and 1 for playmode play
