Is there a way to make it bigger?

The more I learn, the more I realise how little I know.

I have never seen any documentation on enlarging the thumbnail. Sorry.

Sounds like a good feature request [link] to me.

Hard-coded pixel values like a 64x64 thumbnail aren't indexed for pixel inflation, so as screen sizes increase, their utility decreases. Making these values dynamic would be an improvement.

I know this is an old thread but I was looking for something on Project Window Thumbnails for a while, so I had to chime in.

Wouldn't it be great to have a thumbnail view option in the project view just like Premiere uses.
Is there some reason that evades me of why this would already be the case?

I often get images from clients that are generically named
ie: image001.jpg, image002.jpg, image003.jpg,,, etc.

I need to click one at a time to see it's thumbnail, or open a windows explorer or Bridge to view the entire lot at once.
It works but it's a pain to go back and forth like that.

Anyway... just my two cents
Keep the change

As Walter said, you should file a feature request.

The AE team is very small, so they only focus their time to things that are important. Well, not always (ray-traced 3d anyone?), but that's their intent.

The more people who file feature requests, the more likely the AE team will be able to put their resources towards implementing that feature.

I agree with this thread!
a way to preview, at different sizes, thumbnails... and a way to scrub through them easily. I get multiple shots with similar names; it would be nice to stay within After Effects, rather than popping up a finder window to preview which specific shot I need to use.
