Sequence thumbnail appearance in footage bin - is this possible?

One really annoying (but simple) thing for me is that the appearance of the sequence thumbnail is too similar to the clips in my bin. I know there's a different icon in the corner but it doesn't really help - it's really difficult to scan over it and differentiate them.

 

Anything would work. Even if there's a way to disable the video preview for just the thumnails.

 

Does anyone feel the same way or have any workarounds?

I don't store sequences in bins of media. I store sequences with sequences.

Hi Niel, if I only have 5 or 6 clips and one sequence it doesn't make sense for me to make bins for everything. I just use the default bin that's created. It just makes it really hard to identify quickly because they all look the same (even the same name as the first clip I dragged onto it).

I would upvote your feature request. Have you made one yet, Harry? You need to head to User Voice for that. Here is the link.

Thank You,
Kevin

I understand we all work differently. One editor teaches four others and supervises their work for three years. At the end of that three years, you have five different editing styles and practices. Who can work under a prescribed system as directed, but each has their own ways they would choose to work.

 

It's simple quick organizational stuff, and I'm not always the most organized editor. But I always rename sequences and quickly drag/drop them to Sequence bin which takes 3 seconds to do. Saves time and frustration.

 

It would be wonderful if you filed a UserVoice request as Kevin noted, and they actually made the change.

 

Until then ... I'll take the five seconds to rename the sequence and three to drag/drop to the appropriate bin, out of sheer practicality.
