    Dear Bridge Users,

    Have you tried setting the following Preferences?
    Edit Menu→Preferences→Thumbnails→Do Not Process files larger than 1000 MB. Change this to 1 MB.

    Also, on the right hand side of the folder navigation bar on top, drop down next to the triangle (Option for thumbnail quality and previews) and select “Prefer Embedded (faster)”. Screenshot attached.

    Let us know if this helps by commenting on User Voice.

    Adobe Bridge would be a great tool to manage large amounts of footage, but preview generation is killing my workflow. In my case Bridge takes around 10 hours to load 1000 clips, and while generating thumbnails and previews, Bridge completely freezes. I have around 200.000 clips stored in my hard disks, and all of them are organized with keywords.

    Now we have the option to export cache, but importing it is slow too (much faster but slow anyway).

    I ask for a button to disable Preview Generation and another one to disable Thumbnail Generation. A contextual menu to generate Thumbnail would also be great.

    I think this would improve a workflow for video based on keywords. Concretely Video Preview is useless in my workflow. Thank you.
