This script displays a palette with controls for jumping to different times in the composition. There are buttons for jumping a specific number of frames forward or back from the current time, as well as 7 favorite buttons for capturing different times (set from the current time) and jumping to them easily.

Change the frame offsets by entering new values in any of the four fields.

For the favorites buttons, captured times are in seconds. Also, although you can capture negative time values, After Effects restricts the minimum time value to 0 seconds (start of the composition); the maximum time is 10,800 seconds.

Your frame offsets and captured time favorites are saved as settings for use in subsequent sessions.
