Just to bring some background info over the table:

In PremierePro 'Ctrl + Enter' is used to build a Preview* of the transitions and effects so that the timeline can play faster if there are heavy processing applied to clips.
Also in Premiere Pro and After Effects the Export Movie (rendering) feature is 'Ctrl + M'
In various 3D animation programs 'F9' is used as a shortcut for Rendering.

* basically small clips for the transitions are generated 'under the hood' and saved to disk, then used in place of the transitions. for clips with effects, the full clip is rendered and substituted (for playback purposes only). when a change happens in the timeline for a transition or an effect, the corresponding preview clip gets outdated and discarded. i.e. a new one has to be generated if the user wants it to.

Just a short remark; I personally would not expect it to be
Ctrl-Enter. Fullscreen shortcuts I've seen so far are Alt+Enter (DOS
and some games, still today), F11 (Firefox, several other programs),
and Shift-Ctrl-F (Not very sure where; perhaps Okular).

Ctrl+Enter is, for me, rather a «confirm this dialog now since Enter
is used inside the dialog already» shortcut (e.g. titler would be a
candidate for this).
