Is there anyway to refresh your edits to animated Photoshop frames inside of a project you have open running in Premiere Pro without closing and reopening the Premiere project? Is there a hotkey for refreshing your project files without having to reload?
  What I am trying to do is lip sync some animation frames inside of Photoshop so they can be used inside of a Premiere video project. I tried loading the .wav file of the audio I'm trying to sync it with but I can't see the waveform which would make it real easy to know what frame to start the mouth animation on. So I have been slightly changing the frame it starts on, saving, and then switching over to Premiere where the psd file is on an video track for preview/segment purposes. Then that Premiere file will be inserted into the overall video project file so that when I make edits to things in Photoshop, it will reflect in Premiere.
  It has worked so far, as long as I don't have the project I'm editing open in both at the same time. If I do, I have to save/reload the Premiere file again to reflect the changes when it would less time consuming to just refresh the file inside the project.

TL:DR Can you view a waveform inside a Photoshop CC timeline or is there a way to refresh a .psd file inside of a currently open project in Premiere Pro CC?

Premiere isn't my forte, but does Cmd-Tab/Alt-Tab back and forth not trigger an update?

If that is supposed to work, then it is not working for me which is why I ask if there is an alternate way.
