When you import an EDL and reference movie file with the Import App, the Version that gets stored in Shotgun is linked to the parent entity. The only way that the Shot thumbnail uploads using the Smart Thumbnail feature is if the Version is linked directly to the Shot. At this time, it's not possible to chop up the original offline to create individual Shots. To get a Version from the edit for each identified shot in the EDL, you must create individual QuickTimes uploaded to the Shot.
I created my cut with the Import Cut app using an EDL and reference movie file, and I have Smart Thumbnails turned on. Why don’t I see thumbnails and Versions on my Shots?
