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.)
-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).
