Somehow, there is a difference in the thumbnailing of one individual movie file and multiple movie files. With the latter, some movie files will fail to get a thumbnail or ThumbsPlus will even crash. I have long ago stopped looking for the cause, and Cerious could never reproduce the problem.

Nowadays, when I want to thumbnail multiple movie files, I simply select them and press INS ('tag file'). That causes them to be added to the Tagged Images gallery, which in turn makes ThumbsPlus thumbnail them in 'individual mode', without crashing or otherwise failing (well, usually). Afterwards, I press Ctrl-INS to remove the tags. So, my suggestion is that you use this as a work-around.

ThumbsPlus v10 Questions / Re: Black dots when viewing animated GIFs
« Last post by aslaksen on 2021-12-05 10:34:54 »
I have solved my problem, so I'm posting in case anybody else has the same problem. The reason for the problem is that the background is transparent. I use Gimp and do Filter > Animation > Unoptimise. I then check the "As animation" box when exporting, and all works well!

ThumbsPlus v10 Questions / Problems with batch video thumbnails
« Last post by aslaksen on 2021-12-05 10:14:43 »
I use K-Lite Mega pack, and I can play all my videos. However, if I open my video folder and select scan folder, the process hangs on a small number of files, giving me an error saying "The background task failed". However, if I click on them individually, I can make thumbnails.

Since they were old files, I thought that I could just use a program like Freemake Video Converter to solve the problem, but batch thumbnails still hangs.

Any suggestion? I'm attaching the log and exc files. I honestly do not know what the problem is, and I'm afraid I don't understand those files.

Thanks!

ThumbsPlus v10 Questions / Re: transfer data from tp5 to tp10
« Last post by Daan van Rooijen on 2021-11-20 15:05:08 »
You could download v10, install it in a separate folder and use its "Convert .TD4" function (1) to convert your database to the v8+ format. Then use the converted database (2) to see if everything is still there and works as expected.

(1) main menu: Database | Advanced | Convert .TD4

(2) main menu: Options | Preferences | Startup | Initial Database | Specific Database (with this, you can make TP10 load the converted database at startup).

but can i migrate all my tp5 stuff to tp10?

Nice releases, indeed! The Z9 is not something I can use for night photography, but the technology will hopefully trickle down. And the new lenses are great, too! :)

Good to hear that it could be solved!

As for your screenshot, these must be exciting times for a Nikonian! (yesterday's Z9 announcement + Z lens roadmap)  :-)

Thanks Daan,

I changed the background to black using the Options-Customize-Colors option
The Windows theme makes no difference.
The last option you list is what caused it. Unchecking the Use Vista/Win7 option fixed it, now it looks good.

Thanks!

How did you change the colors from their defaults?

Either way, the color options that I'm aware of are:

Window | Theme

Options | Customize | Colors (also note the option in the bottom left corner of this dialog)

Options | Preferences | Disks & Folders | Folder Tree Options | Use Vista/Win7 tree appearance   (unsure if this makes a difference)
