Using Thumbnails in Browser in Final Cut Pro

You can save a lot of time in Final Cut Pro by scrubbing through the thumbnails in your Browser window to see what a particular clip contains, without having to load it into the Viewer.  First of all, in order to see your thumbnails, right-click in between the columns at the top of the Browser window titled, Name, Duration, In, Out, etc and you will see a whole list of options.  Choose Show Thumbnail

It is important to note that when you have the Thumbnails column in your browser, you cannot double-click on the thumbnail to load it into the Viewer.  The thumbnails are just there for preview purposes, but using them for scrubbing can be a huge timesaver and a great organizer.
