Setting the Clip’s Poster Frame

The first frame of a clip doesn’t always give a good indication of what a clip is about. Premiere Elements uses the first frame of the clip as the poster frame to display in the Preview area, but you can select a different frame so you have a much better idea of what the clip contains when you are viewing your clips in the Media panel.
