Instead of giving us limited options and forcing us to select thumbnail manually on each site, or not giving us an option at all, every agency should recognize the poster time / frame and set it as the thumbnail on their sites automatically. This would make it easier for both sides and it would potentially increase sales (we all know how much the adequate thumbnail means for a video).

For anybody who doesn't know, you can set the poster frame / time in After Effects (composition > set poster time) and in Quicktime pro (view > set poster frame).

So that's what that does?! Eleven years using AE and I never knew! I click it all the time when I accidentally miss 'composition settings' in the dropdown, but as nothing seemed to happen, I never knew what it did! Thanks!

The thing is whether or not will poster frame be used as the thumbnail is up to each individual program. For example, poster frame is the thumbnail in Adobe Bridge, but it isn't in Windows.

If you ask me, everything should just use the poster frame instead of making it's own interpretation. That would be better for everyone.
