Just some little thoughs about those thumbnails:
Having thumbnails on strips can serve differenet purposes, they don’t all need the same things, so depending the user’s goal there are ways of displaying thumbnails which are more efficient thant others.
Just off of my head I can think of those needs:
- Identify / differenciate strips’ content
- See more or less preciselly the evolution of the strips’ content
Just with those two considerations, there is a huge difference of needs between them:
In the second case, you basically need to see as mutch thumbnails as possible through time. While in the first case, you need only one thumbnail at the begining of a strip, or a few thumbnails spreaded along.
Depending the user’s needs, the amount of needed thumbnails can be changed quite a lot, and such, the thumbnails’ generation.
So it’s nice to have some kind of control on that, let the user choose what he needs, as well as adapt the feature to his hardware.
