This would be very useful because I tend to put the slate in front of every camera before we start rolling, that way, by looking at the thumbnail we can tell which Shot/Take it is.

The only problem is that sometimes the slate looks too small and is hard to read.

This is VERY useful when cataloging footage.

I'm referring primarily to the Tiles View, but this could be equally useful in the List view.

Premiere allows you to make those tiles pretty big, and they're scalable, but I'd settle for an Extra Large size or two.

Hi Val.

We just added extra large tiles in the upcoming 11.2 release. In the mean-time, you can manually increase the size of your large tiles with a little bit of text-file editing; if you open the config.dat file (which resides in the same folder as the lightworks executable on Windows) and add the following line :

large_tile_height 150

your large tiles will now be the same size as the new extra large ones. There's no limits checking, so it's probably best to resist the temptation to go crazy with numbers much bigger than that.. Make sure to add the new line between the opening and closing brace lines.

Worked like a charm. 150 is definitely better, but it'd be nicer to have them even larger (sometimes the slate is smaller on the screen).

Thanks a lot for this, it's a huge time-saver to not have to open each clip just to be able to read the slate

I tried bumping the size to 250, and so far so good. Looks much better on my 1080p screens

Hey, thanks

I am now. The teasers were cut with Premiere. But when I'm done cataloging the footage, I'll be cutting the official trailer and feature using Lightworks, yes
