Hi, I’m wondering if there is a way to select a screen or custom image for upload to Instagram? It needs to be more appealing in an IG feed than than the black screen currently appearing.

Yeah same for me as well.

Hi Michael, while I am working on a way for you to be able to export custom thumbs, you don’t really need it for this purpose.  The placeholder images on ClipScribe are nothing more than just a way for you to know your video is there and it is playable.  The thumbnail choice part happens on Instagram.  They have a spot for you to either choose a thumbnail, or upload your own.
(Unless something has changed…)
Let me know if that doesn’t appear to be the case any more.
Thanks!
