Regenerating Thumbnails

You can get the most up-to-date thumbnails in the Thumbnails view. As you draw, a series of small images (thumbnails) is generated. These thumbnails are automatically refreshed based on the refresh duration you set in the Preferences dialog box (Advanced tab, Delay Before Updating Thumbnails parameter).

You can choose update thumbnails immediately. This flushes all cached thumbnails in the Thumbnails and Timeline views, and forces new thumbnails to be regenerated.

To regenerate all thumbnails:

  1. Select File > Regenerate All Thumbnails.
  1. In the dialog box that opens, click Yes.
IMPORTANT: This cannot be undone and will flush all existing thumbnail images in the Library.

All thumbnails are flushed and replaced with the regenerated ones.
