Snapshot image location?
on Sep 7, 2011 at 12:27:52 pm

Hello everyone,
One question, I wonder where the image taken when you click the snapshot button to take a snapshot of the screen in an After effects CS5 project screen goes; ie where is the image from the snapshot stored in?

Snapshots aren't stored anywhere that you could get them, actually. This page [link] has all the info on snapshots. Make sure you also read the comments at the bottom for multiple suggestions on how to get a snapshot stored somewhere.

Yeah, that link to helpx.adobe.com is about as useful as udders on a bull.

The snapshot button is just to compare 2 frames. You can't save the snapshot - which you should be able to do. If you want to save a frame: It's composition>save frame as>file

It was very useful four years ago, but Adobe's rewritten it since then.

The new link should be this one [link], but it still doesn't cover how to save a still image...which is annoying.

This is exactly what I was looking for. More steps than premiere, but does the job.
Thanks.
