[quote=CDan;2088836]In preferences, clip editing, there are 4 settings for “user setting” on the thumbnail display. I have one set to “1 frame”. In the editing window, right-click and select “thumbnail display settings” and select that user setting.
This should give you frame-based thumbnails. You can also use the “pause step” button to move one frame at a time.
I’m not sure what is displayed under the thumbnails for time stamps, but this gives me 30 thumbnails per second on 30 fps MPEG.
If you don’t make any changes to the clip properties (other than aspect flag) or output video settings, and smart rendering is enabled, you shouldn’t see any re-encoding except for edits. How long the output takes will depend on the length of the clip and number of edits, but a 1-hr video should take about 10 min to render on an average system. IF re-encoding, it would take well over an hour.[/quote]
I did go through the settings as you mentioned and did set the thumbnail interval at 1 frame.
I get 10 thumbnails displayed, however the time stamps are not every second. Here is an actual example.
2:23, 2:26, 2:30, 2:33, 2:36, 2:40, 2:43, 2:46, 2:50, 2:53
And the time/frame counter that is between the main video window & the thumbnails displays exactly what is on the â€œhighlightedâ€ thumbnail.
I can “move the playhead to the next frame” by clicking on the proper screen icon or by using the keyboard arrow key. But this makes the thumbnail move to the next displayed frame, not the next real frame.
Perhaps the trial software version restricts this.
