Very quick tip in Lightroom – how to preview videos super quick

How to preview videos in Lightroom

A very quick tip in Lightroom.

I have just found how to preview videos super quick in Lightroom. You can see the video on my You Tube channel.

Watching videos in Lightroom can be a painful process. But check this out. I recorded this hand held on my iPhone so excuse the poor quality footage but this really is a fantastic timesaver that I wanted to share as soon as I came across it.

The rough video is on my YouTube channel.

In the library module using the grid view all you do is move your mouse across the thumbnail and it shows you the video!

How cool is this?

It does not work, rather bafflingly, in loupe view.
