I have not noticed this before but it looks like the thumbnails disappear when the clip gets below a certain width (scaled down).
CS6 shows thumbnails all the way.
BTW i am on Windows.
Don't know if this is by design, looks like it.
There is a thresh hold for generating thumbnails in Premiere pro CC. This works fine in CS6, but just to consume less processing power for generating thumbnails while editing in the timeline CC has this limit. You can fill the feature request form.
Thanks for the answers,
So this is normal and eveyrone is fine with it and dosent find it incoviniant? I find that hard to beleive...
No inconvenience here.
I only use a thumbnail at the head of Clips option.
I assume that it is inconvenient to you because you are editing in the timeline with the razor tool? Not such a precise edit method.
I edit from the Source Monitor and from th then on... I can see and work with the Program monitor to do whatever I need to do in the Timeline.
I don't find it a problem either. If a thumbnail is missing, I just zoom in a bit.
problem solver anyone???
it is very pest!!!
Funny. Basically you're saying it is the user's fault. Typical for a mac user.
Shooternz happens to be on Windows.
The clips have to be over a certain width to show thumbnails.
I don't think anyone is saying it is anyone's fault, I think they are saying that is the way the application works - there is a minimum width of clip on the timeline below which it will not display a thumbnail.
Why the authors of the program chose the width where the thumbnail toggles off I don't know - maybe they thought the resultant thumbnail would be too small to be useable . . .
but you can always add/file a feature request if you would like to see that threshold lowered:
This is typical of Adobe. Take away a feature that users/designers/developers are use to using, and then bring them back later calling it an UPGRADE! Ive been using Adobe products for 18 years, from Photoshop to Dreamweaver to After Effects and Premier. It just drives me nuts when they do things like this. Removing thumbnails is going to aggravate 50% of users and some level.
The thumbnails are EXTREMELY important Adobe! It help SPEED UP WORK FLOW! When the clock is against you and you're trying quickly to layer long complicated video clips and need to see where you are. Just having a coloured bar is ridiculous!
Take away a feature? This has been so ever since 7.0 we are now on 10.0
True. But I went from 7 to 10. Only just started with Creative cloud 6months back. Still using the old software on a new fast machine runs better.
