thumbnails

When I export shots from an sliced clip or a sequence, all the shots gets the same thumbnail....

I just found this comment in the ftrack_base_processor.py about the thumbnail...

 # TODO: pick frame from mid length clip or cut
 
Having the right thumbnail is crucial !
 
Any clue how to fix this ?

Hi @guiramalho , this seems to be a file from the nuke studio integration .
The code for the thumbnail in there is quite simple and pick the mid frame, 
please feel free to drop an email to support with suggestions on how it should behave and we'll be looking into it.
Cheers.

Hi @guiramalho, I'm in the process of checking if there's any better way of doing the frame extraction, but what you are seeing are the default settings used by Hiero for the PosterFrame (which is what we are currently using internally)

There are various ways you can define which frame to be used for now, either on the source clips:

Or on the project settings:

I'll reply to your ticket when I've more news about updates on the code side.
Cheers.

This is the problem ! This changes the frame but they still the same.

I don´t want to use the poster frame.

I have an sliced reference clip the thumbnail must came from it´s cut´s in or mid point, not the original clip poster frame.

Cheers.
