Searching with the Expand Function

The expand function allows you to divide a selected clip
into 12 blocks, and to display thumbnails of the first frame
in each block in the thumbnail list. When the CHAPTER
screen is visible, you can divide chapter segments between
essence marks into 12 blocks and display thumbnails in the
same way. This function is available whenever the
thumbnail list or CHAPTER screen is displayed. This
function allows you to quickly review the content of the
selected clip or chapter, and to search efficiently for a
target scene. You can repeat the expand operation up to
three times
( t 12 blocks t 144 blocks t 1,728 blocks).
The maximum number of blocks may be larger than 1,728
when the recorded duration of the clip is short. In this case,
the frame interval of expanded thumbnails is fixed at 1
frame. This allows you to view expanded thumbnails at
equal intervals.
To execute the expand function
With the thumbnail list displayed, select the clip that
contains the scene that you want to find.
Press the EXPAND (F5) button.
The selected clip is divided into 12 blocks, and the first
frame of each block appears in the thumbnail list.
