Batch export of still frames of all markers
on Sep 4, 2015 at 2:15:51 pm

Hello Great Hive Mind -

I have a client that requires a PDF booklet containing still images of every scene in a fairly large video. My current workflow is to place markers on the sequence in PP and then export each frame as a still image. Then I use Acrobat to make a booklet with all those PDFs. This works fine, but the current project has nearly 200 scenes, so I'd like to find a way to automate the process of getting still frames of every marker out of PP. Is there a way to do this in PP or Media Encoder? Or perhaps some other tool if something else would be a better way to do it. I'm not apposed to buying a plugin or other app if necessary.

Thanks!

I'd also love to know if this can be done.
Anyone?

Hey all,

Through all my searching I have not found this script for Premiere... but one exists for After Effects. I just used it and it worked well. The only complaint I would have is that it exports the title as total frame number instead of hh:mm.ff, so I'm having to manually change the names. But it's far easier than exporting every single frame by hand.

Here is the script download, name your own price: http://aescripts.com/render-frame-at-markers/

Could we get this script to work only on AE, or also in Premiere?
Thanks

I didn't create it, unfortunately, so I'm not sure.

Hi folks, I work on a Mac and I used Apple Script to create a script that works basically using the Premiere hot keys to go to the next marker then another hot key to export the still. So I'm sure something similar could be done on a PC.

The script looks like this, just update how many times you want to repeat to go for roughly based on the number of markers you have. It'll save to the last location you saved a still from your programme window to.

Paste this into the Apple Script Editor:

activate application "Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2018"
repeat 5 times
tell application "System Events" to keystroke "m" using shift down
delay (random number from 0.5 to 2)
tell application "System Events" to keystroke "e" using shift down
delay (random number from 0.5 to 1)
tell application "System Events" to key code 36
delay (random number from 0.5 to 2)
end repeat

I'm not a coder at all but it works a charm. Best M
