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.

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.
