Bins Clip thumbnail image from selection in out ?

PostWed Feb 28, 2018 3:48 pm

Hi People, maybe is a dumb question but I couldn't figure out yet.

I'm new to davinci, old video editor but just switching to resolve. I couldn't find a way to show the clips inside a bin with a frame from the selection range of the clip instead of the first frame or last frame I scrubed. is there a way to achieve this in resolve?

I usually make a quick preselection in a full camera timeline then drag and drop that selection to different bins my goal is to be able to see the first frame of each cut on each clip. I found this method very useful to quickly see all the cuts. but davinci is showing me first frame on every clip so if there 5 clips that were splited from a original footage this 5 clips shows the same first frame on each clip...
what I want is all those 5 clips to show the first frame of the cut (the in)

Thanks

Thanks Hector,

I knew about that way to change the thumbnail, but I got around 100 clips per bin. I was wondering if there is an automatic way to switch the thubnail to the in point of each clip

Hello, yes, we are trying to figure this out as well. ...

We have a bin of selected clips. But the thumbnails all show the first frame of their PARENT clip. - So it's not helpful visually to glance through the bin and pick a select to work with.

Is there a way to change this? ...to see the thumbnail as the IN POINT instead?

Thank you!!
