previewing clips in browser
on Nov 26, 2009 at 10:59:14 am


I'm working with many clips and have set my bin view to 'large icons' so I can easily identify them visually.

What would be great is if I could also 'preview' them from within the bin - ie maybe click and drag across the large icon in the browser and have the clip scroll through so I can see the rest of the footage other than just the poster frame. (kind of like what iPhoto does with photo albums)

Does this make sense? Is it possible? Am I being ridiculous?

Thanks for any help,

Activate the hand scrubber tool and use that, underneath the zoom tool. Or in list view use Show Thumbnails and you can scrub there as well.

All the best,
