Enable Premiere Pro to make contact sheets of assets
I can set a thumbnail for my videos in whichever Bin the asset resides, after a shoot it would be great to be able to print a contact sheet of assets so that the client knows what's all there. Yes I "could" do a screen capture or some other work-around... but contact sheets are standard needs and it make sense to be able to hover over the clip, select the inpoint and use that as the thumbnail. Then allow me just like in Bridge to control the layout and make thumbnails.
*Note You can sort of do this in bridge, but can't change the thumbnail and often times the camera is rolling before the final framing of a shot.

Has anyone found any 3rd party tools that do this well?

Yeah, Bridge has a limitation that it cannot see inside subfolders. So using Red footage, for example, Bridge will not be able to drill down for thumb images. It would be great if Premiere would take the poster frames in the bin (even after manually set) and then have to ability to export to Photoshop for Contact Sheet II to make the PDF.
