Constantly Reloading Audio Thumbnail

I have worked with Shotcut for some time with one huge annoyance that I can’t seem to find a way around. When I add a clip to the timeline, it loads the audio thumnail. When I reload the project later, the program has to completely reload these audio thumnails from scratch. This means if I close a project with 3 hour long videos, and come back later, it take 10-15 minutes for these audio thumnails to reload into the project before I can really work with them again.

Why don’t these audio thumbnails save somewhere within the project file(s) so that they don’t have to be reloaded? Is there any way I can make this happen? I have to assume I’m doing something wrong, or have some setting mis-applied?

Any help would be great. Thank you in advance.

The audio track does not have thumbnails, it has a waveform which you can disable. Right click the track header and uncheck it.


That does help, thank you
