BEST Format for QT exported STILLS????
on Jan 21, 2011 at 3:59:25 am

Hello all,

If you have time, please address the folowing export q:   How do I obtain the best quality STILL IMAGE from a .mov file? (.TIFF, JPEG, photoshop, bit depth, millions of colors, etc.)

Scenario:
-I have HD movie footage shot with my Sony HD video recorder.   The footage is not compressed.
-I want to create a still sequence of about 8 seconds, for Photoshop editing.
-Software I own that could be used for this task:  FCP (Compressor, the whole FCP suite)/Quicktime Pro 7, Quicktime 10, Photoshop CS3, etch a sketch (actually don't have one anymore).


Basically, I want to take 8 secs (240 frames?) out of a movie, and alter/add each frame, place in order, and voila! - create a 'new' 8-second .mov (HD).

How do I do this?

-Bob

If I understand correctly what you're doing try this:

Take your MOV into QuickTime Pro, set an in and out point for your 8 seconds, select "trim to selection", then export as an image sequence using TIFF with no compression.

Note that your images won't lose resolution this way, but they won't gain any either ... in other words, video stills will never be 300+dpi print resolution.
