  • 1.  Thumbnails in Xpression

    Posted 12-02-2021 10:56
    Hello Xpression Users, 

    I'm having trouble seeing a thumbnail/preview frame for some of the graphics I've recently built. These graphics are using video files exported as animations, so the first frame is empty before they animate on, and that's the only frame that it shows me (my full page graphics have thumbnails as they just start in full right away).
    I'm new to Xpression and the scene director feature is still confusing to me, but I know it has something to do with that. 

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

    The easiest way to do that is to go to the scene director and scrub until you see the frame you would like to use as a thumbnail. Then click anywhere on the timeline without an animation controller so you have nothing selected. Then right click >>Markers>>Preview Frame>>Set. I just tried it and it works great.
