Photoshop CC 20.0.2: ProRes export codecs missing from Render Media on macOS High Sierra

These codecs are duly installed in AME. They simply don't show up under any Quicktime setting in the Photoshop Render Media dialog. The only thing I can export is "uncompressed," which translates to ProRes 4444, way overkill for my needs.  Worked fine in PS Extended. What's this all about? How do I get them linked?

Undocumented trick: Use the regular AME to create a QuickTime preset for ProRes with the frame rate and dimensions you want, save the preset, find it on disk, and copy it to your Photoshop Presets/Video/QuickTime folder. Restart PS and look for that preset in the presets popup in the Render Video dialog. Caveat: probably best to stick with the preset's dimension and frame rate in Render Video, and don't try to substitute other values there. If other frame rates or dimensions are needed, then make dedicated presets in AME.

Awesome, Jeffrey, worked like a charm.  Now if we could just get some humane keyboard nav shortcuts like JKL and arrow key frame advance without having to press Command and such...

I know, we're always complaining... but this was great!

Best, as always,
Loren

Do you have Enable Timeline Shortcut Keys enabled? http://photoshopanimation.com/2016/enable-timeline-shortcut-keys/

Sorry for the late reply. Yes, of course, I invoke the pop-up menu and enable Use Timeline Shortcut Keys.  And the existing list is largely about arrow keys. J-K-L simply does not work. It would be good news to hear I'm missing something, because this is standard timeline nav in Premiere Pro.

I've been missing this kind of obvious nav shortcut set for years. J= reverse; K= stop; L=forward. Also: JK = slow back; KL = slow forward. Along with existing arrow keys, it would be awesome to have this in the Photoshop Timeline, especially for detailed frame restoration work, which requires constant forward-back review, which gets real old using arrow keys.

Like many who started in Photoshop doing still restoration, I'm actually much more comfortable with this interface for this work than After Effects. The Clone tool is extremely useful. JKL makes this a powerful motion frame restoration kit.
