Hi everyone!

 

I've searched the forum and many have asked the question but there doesnt seam to be the answer.

 

When i create a video with PP, the chosen thumbnail for file preview and social media start image appears to be totally random.

Sometimes the automatically chosen thumbnail is inappropriate, how can i choose the frame that is used?

There's a keyboard shortcut I think ... or perhaps a context menu item for this. Can't remember, there might be both, and I'm not at my computer to check.

 

Right-click on a clip, see if there's an option to set preview thumbnail.

 

And search the keyboard shortcuts dialog for "preview" and/or "thumbnail" ... I think those would get anything like this.

PeruBob to the rescue!

 

Yes, they're called "poster frames" in Premiere ... which has some weird terminology at times. Like Resolve calling masks "power windows" ... right ... it's a freakin' mask ... well, "poster" frames is maybe a leetle more to the point than a power window ... maybe ...

 

And as noted in my post, you can do this either via the right-clicking of a clip in the Project pane, scrolling down to 'set poster frame' ... or by setting a keyboard shortcut in the Keyboard shortcut panel. Which I've done long since.

The player determines the thumbnail not Premiere.

As e.g. YT you can set your own thumbnails.

File Explorer shows you thumbnails for all files unless it's a file it doesn't recognize. Videos almost always have a thumbnail and unless a specific thumbnail is set for it, Windows 10 will use the first frame as the thumbnail. This may, or may not help you identify what the video is. You can set
