Editor timeline frame thumbnails get created every time I zoom in or out


every time I zoom in or out of the timeline in the editor the thumbnails for the frames are created from scratch.

Is there a function where you can create all the thumbnails at the beginning and then regardless of the zoom factor of the timeline you see the respective thumbnails immediately?

Thank you,

    @ahomecalledearth I don't believe there is a a way to keep thumbnails from regenerating. However, I would recommend setting your Preview Mode to Start/End. This will prevent the system from rebuilding all the thumbnails when you zoom in and out. This also speeds up software response.

    Setting to None will produce the best performance gain when working on the timeline.
