Is there a way to batch out multiple still frames from one project (timeline)?

Automator would probably do that pretty easily.

Just set up keystroke equivalents for "next marker" and then choose whether you want to export a frame, or maybe make it simpler and have automator drag a fixed selection based on window position and grab a screenshot from the interface?

Just thinking out loud, but I often forget about Automator - but it's a good tool to be familiar with - and if you own a Mac, you already own it!

In FCP prefs, you can also set one of your 'Share' destinations to be the current frame, and also set the file type of the saved frame. That, combined with the Automator idea seems like a pretty tidy solution.
