Feature request - cache thumbnails

I film events, weddings and documentaries. As such I am working with 400 - 800 clips every project. Whenever I load up a project and open a bin in thumbnail view I have to wait for the thumbnails to populate. I primarily use h.264/h.265 so this takes a while (i dont have the time or data resources to re-transcode everything to prores or DNxHD). I have to do this every single time I open the project and I have to keep scrolling up and down the bin to get premiere to generate all of the thumbnails. I can set a "poster frame" in a preview window but that doesnt affect the thumbnail view and this is flushed the next time I enter premiere.

Please can we have a setting to cache the first frame of each clip (In point ideally) as a thumbnail. Premiere is obviously doing this to an extent already. When I come back to the bin during the same session the images are all still there... It just gets flushed when you close the project. An option to prevent that flush would be a Godsend for people like myself that edit with hundreds of clips.

Thanks

Hi @Pyromk1 ,

Sorry for the problem. We have added GPU support for thumbnails in the latest beta builds, and we believe thumbnails generation should be quicker and more efficient now. 

Please check out the latest beta build version from the creative cloud and let us know how it goes there.

You can download the latest Beta builds from Creative Cloud --> Beta apps

If you still face this issue, please share your project files(&media) here https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/help/share.html and we will check on our end.

Thanks,
Mayjain
