Exporting single frames
Oftentimes, you’ll want to export single or multiple frames from your video projects. Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 has a new simplified workflow for still-image export, as well as the tried-and-true multiple-frame export via Adobe Media Encoder. Let’s look at the new Export Frame function.
Exporting a single frame via the Export Frame function
Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 has a new, simplified workflow for exporting single frames. Note that you can use the Export Frame function both in the Source panel, with content selected from the Project panel, and in the Program Monitor, with a frame selected from the active sequence. When using the Export Frame function from the Source panel, Adobe Premiere Pro will create a still image that matches the resolution of the source video file. When using the Export Frame function from the Timeline, Adobe Premiere Pro will create a still image that matches the resolution of the selected video sequence.
- In the Program Monitor, click the Export Frame button on the lower right.
- In the Export Frame dialog, choose the desired filename, still-image format, and path, clicking the Browse button to open the Browse for Folder dialog.
- Click OK to export the frame.
