Generate Thumbnails in the Media Bank

When you import media into the Media Bank, often it displays only the file-type icon. MixEmergency 2.6 adds a right-click pop-up menu to the Media Bank that allows you to automatically generate a thumbnail image for these items.

Selecting Generate Thumbnail will generate a thumbnail image for the media that you've selected, while selecting Generate All Thumbnails will generate a thumbnail image for all of the media items in the Media Bank.

If you don't like the thumbnail, select Generate Thumbnail again and it will create another randomly generated thumbnail.
