    Hi, been looking at your website and playing around a bit with this MAM. Can I add stills of the pict of a filmposter to a movie clip in a catalog? Maybe a script?

    I’ll pitch in what I know and get some factory folks to add on what I miss.

    If you’re in the desktop app there are several options:

    You can delete the thumbs and recreate new ones.

    You can set a new “Poster Frame” which changes the default thumbnail.

    And you can set a marker which gives you a thumb per marker. (This will increase the size of your db of course.)

    There is also a new feature in Web3 called filmstrips (I believe) that makes a little hover and playback film of stills for a clip.

    Finally, via API you can inject thumbs for a clip in the server.

    Describe your use case a bit more and I’ll bet there’s a workable answer. Also, what continent are you on?
