I am trying to get all of my newly created .ptx files from Picture Thumbnails Maker to work as animated thumbnails for my photo sets.

If I use DB Tools > Scan For Screenlists; Videonizer does not seem to pick up .ptx files.

If I use DB Tools > Rescan For Pictures; Videonizer does not pick up new images or .ptx files from existing photo sets.

Is there a way to get those .ptx files working for all of my photo sets?

Do you have "Settings" -> "File types to support" -> PTX checkbox ON?

Yes. That is ON.

If I turn that setting off Videonizer does not import the .ptx file when I first import files with "Rescan for Picture." Which is what I expected. So I'll leave that ON.

The problem is that, if the folder with the pictures is already in the database and I click "Rescan for Pictures", Videonizer will not pick up anything new that was added to that folder.
So I have no way to add the .ptx files to all the already existing items.

Should "Rescan for Pictures" be picking up photos I've added to existing folders?

If not, can we get a button to add newly added photos to the database entries for those folders?
