Along with the new playlist functionality, VideoBox added some options to Clips yesterday that I think are a nice upgrade to an already cool feature.
If you haven’t tried out Clips yet, you can check out my quick guide to how to use them to get up to speed. For those already familiar with the feature, you may have noticed two new options when you create a Clip: Select a List for This Clip and Select an Image for This Clip.
As you may already know, you can make favorites lists for your Clips the same way you can for scenes and DVDs. Now, when you create a clip, you can add it directly to the list(s) of your choice – which means you can make a custom playlist of clips for your viewing pleasure.
Occasionally, I’ve made a Clip and didn’t feel that the auto-generated thumbnail really captured the action. Now, using the slider above the Save button, you can pick the perfect image to display for your clip.
Sometimes the little things make a big difference and I think these two features are pretty snazzy. So get out there, make some Clips with custom thumbnails, put them in a Clip playlist and enjoy!
