The thumbnails represents the file that it’s attached to. Thumbnails look different in BulletProof for each kind of file.
Let’s say you have imported a folder with MOV, MXF, MTS, AVI, WAV, PNG, RAW, EXIF and TXT files. You will see a thumbnail preview of the MOV, MTS, MXF and AVI videos. You will see a thumbnail for the WAV files. You will see a generic preview of the PNG and RAW images. You will not see a preview of the EXIF files, but it will have imported. The TXT files will not display because they weren’t imported.
In the Thumbnails panel, you can apply a Star Rating, Color Label, Circle Take or Flag Status. These Label settings are tracked as metadata in the Metadata panel. Learn about metadata
NOTE: Color Labels are useful when organizing clips within BulletProof, but do not get transferred as metadata to Premiere Pro or Final Cut Pro on export.
Use these handy shortcuts when working with thumbnails:
Visually group and sort clips in the catalog. To do this, use the View> Group Clips By and View> Sort Clips By commands. This grouping/sorting doesn't change the physical location of the clips, just how you view them in the Thumbnail panel.
Group Clips By. These options organize your view of all clips in a folder or catalog by the chosen group. The default option for grouping clips is by their folder name in ascending order. This choice sets the group header that you see above each group, like Star Rating or the folder name.
Sort Clips By. These options organize your view of all clips within each group. The default option for sorting files is alphabetically by file name.
Sort Clips By will arrange the clips within their Group Clips By category. For instance, if clips are grouped by Color Label and files are sorted by File Type, then the files in the Yellow folder will get listed by .JPG, .MOV, and so on.
