My primary goal is to implement customisable shortcuts for the Pitivi video editor. Users will be able to set their preference for every single currently existing shortcut in Pitivi, which will improve the usability as well as speed up their work.

I will extend Pitivi to use the new GtkShortcutsWindow for viewing of the shortcuts, as well as refactor the Preferences window in Pitivi to handle the customisation. For Preferences, I want the UI to be modern and sleek, thus I will use GtkStackSidebar.

Finally, I want to bring the JKL navigation shortcuts to the Pitivi timeline. Users will be able to playback forward and backward at various speeds (up to 4x), depending on the number of times they press the J or L key, and play or pause the playback by using K.
