Organizing your Footage > Setting Poster Frames

Setting Poster Frames

As described, when you work in icon view, each clip is represented visually in the form of a miniature icon. The picture used to represent each of the clips is called the Poster Frame. The Poster Frame is determined by the first frame of the clip.

A problem arises when the first frame of the captured clip is not representative of the shot. Look at the above example. The image on the left does nothing to represent a Seagull, whereas the image on the right says it all.

It is possible to set any image from within the clip to be the Poster Frame.

  1      Open the clip into the Viewer and position the Scrubber Bar on the frame you wish to display.

  2      Select the Mark menu at the top of the screen and scroll down to Set Poster Frame. Release the mouse button and the image on the thumbnail will now change to that which you have selected.
