This has probably been suggested before, but I'll put it out there again. In the DDR bin, I would like the ability to select the icon picture that represents that particular clip. If the first frame of your video is black (which is very common) the DDR icon will show a black frame which is very annoying. If I could select a frame from the clip that I want the icon to be, it would be extremely helpful in identifying that clip very quickly.

This has probably been suggested before ....Only about 500 times, Wink (maybe only a handful of times by you though) ;)
Seriously, this is something no-one will disagree with, but given all the file formats that have to be dealt with, it's non-trivial. That said, I live in hope.

Hi Steve. I wonder if (engineering wise) it would be easier to designate the center frame in a clip to be the icon as compared to the first frame. At least you'd see something instead of black. If I remember correctly, I think that's what the VT's used to do.
