Hi community.

I have tried to find info but I have not found anything on this subject. 

I am facing a real problem and this is that,

before choosing which videos I'll import to my premiere pro project, which means that I have to copy them and organise them in my project's folder, I have to view hundrends of 4k clips and choose among them.

That means that in windows the only thing that I can do is, view in windows explorer my video thumbnails and if they remind me sth and I am almost sure that is the one I have to import, then I click on the specific video   which opens in VLC, I watch a few seconds and then I decide if I'll put it in my project or not. That means immense amount of time.

In adobe bridge it is the same thing. I can see the thumbnails and if I click in one then I can play it on the preview panel one by one or multiple, but it takes time with 4k. I even tried to put the playback resolution to faster but it does not work for me even if my laptop is powerfull.

I am wondering. Is there not any program where I can view my list of videos, and where their thumbnails play (like when we import videos to premiere pro, we see the small thumbnail and when we touch it #not click it# we can move fast forward and check if this videos suits our project).

Is there anything like that or similar ?

Thank you so much for your help in advance

it is really much appreciated

Kind regards

If you use the Media browser in Premiere and select icon rather than list view that will let you hover scrub the clip before importing.
