Player Panel / Preview Window

It also calls "Preview Window". The Player Panel shows how you play the video in the Timeline. The position of the playhead is shown in the time code in the lower right corner.

You can enter a new time code to jump to a specific point in the video.

Below the time code, you'll find the Snapshot button, which can save a full-resolution still frame and automatically add it to the Media Library as an image.

The “Vertical Screen” option makes it possible to change the preview player to 9:16 portrait aspect ration for better preview when creating short videos.
