    FASTER THUMBNAILS - was Thumbnails keep changing

    2018.12.9 on OSX 10.14.1

    I just started a project and the thumbnails I see in either Frame View Tab or Script View Tab keep changing.  And when the change they are Thumbnails from other clips!!!

    Any ideas?

    Jef

    EDIT:  I THINK I MIGHT HAVE FOUND IT.  I noticed that Faster Thumbnails was on.  Turned it off and they seem to have gone back to what they should be.  Will keep an eye on it.

    Ok that was definitely the issue.  BUT ....  This feature seems to be turned on in ALL my bins.  I can not figure out how to disable it globally  HELP!!!

    This feature should REALLY not be on by default as I believe it is.

    Re: FASTER THUMBNAILS - was Thumbnails keep changing

    Ok, this is really messy.

    I now think that something is wrong beyond the Faster Thumbnails feature.  My project is just randomly changing thumbnails to one of two thumbnails from other clips.  Toggling Faster Thumbnails can sometimes cause them to change as I watch.  I tried flushing the memory cache to no avail.  I have tried new user.  Nope.

    Stumped.

    I have just located and trashed all thumbnail files.  I set up a new location on a SSD drive for thumbnails going forward.  As I open bins in the offending project I see the thumbnails being built.  They seem correct.  Now I wait and watch .....

    I'm seeing the same in 2018.12.11.

    I think there is a problem with the thumbnail cache somehow.

    all different setups in various editing suites. my own: MC 2018.2, OSX 10.12.6, iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, 2017), 4,2 GHz Intel Core i7, 40GB RAM, Radeon... [view my complete system specs]
