Hello,

When Posting a video, Tik Tok asks you if you which frame to use as a thumbnail. But when I go to select the frame I'd like to use, it doesn't show the text or filter I had applied in the prior step. Is there a way to get that treatment applied to the thumbnail, or can I take a screenshot myself and upload that?


Windows / Chrome 108.0.0.0

I can't see any still image working because TikTok uses a short segment - a few frames - that it runs back and forth for active thumbnails.

Is there any way to get it to choose a segment AFTER processing? I don't understand why it would ever work any other way. I mean, it seems really weird to have a filter on the video but not the thumbnail, so I only see the option of doing any FX or filters offline, and then submitting to tik tok, which essentially makes its own filters completely useless.
