Default Use Pinch Mode on a Trackpad to zoom Edit Window

I just launched my new YouTube channel "Music Tech Explained - the visual approach"



https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxu...P6Q28iV6a8a2tw

These in-depth instructional videos, using motion-graphics and produced in 4K UHD resolution, are enriched with diagrams and illustrations to help explain topics about Logic Pro X, Pro Tools, and audio production workflow tips.
They are easy to follow and fun to watch while learning tons of new things about those topics.

In the video about the Trackpad, I show how you can use the Pinch Mode on a Trackpad to zoom in and out horizontally in the Edit window (instead of using the R and T key command)

Enjoy and don't forget to subscribe

PS: I also set up a Patreon page for anybody who is kind enough to support these free YouTube videos

So the linked video does not explain how to setup pinch to zoom in edit window (like r and t)...? How to do it?

It is in the video @24:06

You have to use the BetterTouchTool utility app and assign the Pinch Gesture to those key commands. You can see the screenshot in the lower-left corner

Default Re: Use Pinch Mode on a Trackpad to zoom Edit Window

I know this thread is very old - but I figured I would post an update - after downloading the above software - the pinch zoom was like pressing the the "R" or "T" button on keyboard - not a smooth type zoom.

DEFAULT TRACKPAD - Zoom w/keyboard modifiers
The zoom in/out does in fact with by default via keyboard modifiers.

Shift + Option + two finger slide up/down = zoom in/out horizontal
Shift + Option + two finger slide left/right = zoom in/out waveform vertical

I haven't figured out the track height + trackpad - that would be nice. IF someone knows that modifier combo please share...
