See "Selecting thumbnails" (page 110) for more
information.
Using the expand function to find scenes
The expand function allows you to divide a
selected clip into equally sized blocks, and to
display thumbnails of the first frame in each
block. This is a quick and efficient way to review
the selected clip and search for target scenes. You
can specify 12, 144, or 1728 divisions.
Note
The maximum number of blocks may be other than 1728
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.
See page 109 for more information about thumbnail
screen operations.
1
In the clip thumbnail screen, select the
thumbnail of the clip that contains the
scene you want to find.
2

The selected clip is divided into 12 blocks,
and a list appears in the expand thumbnail
screen (see page 104) with the first frame of
each block displayed as a thumbnail.

Select the thumbnail that you want to
expand further.
4
Repeat steps 2 and 3 up to twice, as
required.
Note
Thumbnails cannot be further expanded when they
already have the minimum duration (1 frame).
To return to the previous expansion level
Press the DISP SEL/EXPAND button with the
SHIFT button held down.
To display the expand thumbnail screen of the
previous or next clip
With the expand thumbnail screen still active,
press the PREV button or the NEXT button.
