Remove the Thumbnail Drag when moving clips to the timeline.

PostWed Apr 08, 2020 12:05 am

I am finding it frustrating that when you drag a clip onto the timeline the clip can often be obscured by the "thumbnail image" that is floating in front of it. I would love to see this "thumbnail" image removed so that you could see the clip better when editing.

I would not vote for this. I think you need to zoom in a bit more to see things better.

Zooming doesn't change the fact that it obscures the view of what you are doing. By the time you drag the clip to the timeline there is no need for the thumbnail. In fact if your timeline is larger you will see that same thumbnail on the clip. So the "dragged" thumbnail is now not only covering up the clip constrainsts but also covering up the thumbnail that is on the clip.

I can understand the need for the thumbnail when dragging onto the overlay in the record monitor. But once you get into the timeline area it doesn't serve any purpose and hides vital information.

I know this is an old post, but is there an option to remove this yet? It literally covers my in point on the clip. Notice the screenshot.

Front edge of the clip you're inserting is hidden under the thumbnail

The yellow circle shows the video clip being dragged onto the timeline and I am trying to cut away to this shot right between 2 words in the dialogue. You can see where the cut point is in the waveforms, but you can't see the front edge of the clip that you're dragging down onto the timeline. So you don't know where it starts.

Now normally I have the CTI / playhead at the cutpoint and just do an insert. But in this case I don't want the audio to insert as well just the video.
Basically a manual edit is useless here unless you use the playhead to align your insert. Even if the thumbnail was translucent so you could see through it that would be a better option. I guess there's just no solution as this thread has been dormant for months now.

I can certainly understand the problem, but I thought I would post this anyway in case it helps anyone. The pic show a zoomed in view with a clip dragged from the Preview window. The clip thumbnail has not increased in size.

If the size of the audio track is increased you can move the thumbnail down and hopefully out of the way.

Upgraded from 16 to 17 studio and I have the same problem, it's really annoying and not found out where to turn this off. Zooming in is not a solution for me, it would be better to turn off if it's possible.

The "workaround" is to watch the mouse cursor—the beginning of the clip is in line with it's point.
