Exporting a Still Image JPEG from Final Cut Pro

| | TrackBacks (0)
If you have a particular frame or image in your Final Cut Pro video that you'd like to make into a still image or jpeg, it's a relatively simple process.  Maybe you want to use the still image as a promotional item, or as a background picture for your DVD menu, or maybe you need to email it to someone for approval, or use on a website, or you just really like the picture to put into a frame; whatever the use you have for it, it's super easy to do.

  • In the Timeline, park your playhead over the frame where you want to make a still image from.
  • Go to the File Menu and choose Export > Using QuickTime Conversion

  • Then click on the Format box and choose Still Image

  • Click Save when you are ready to export...and you're done
If you want to export a still image or freeze frame from interlaced video, you can add a De-Interlace filter to reduce any flickering or shaking in the image.  Be sure to check out this article that tells you similarly how to create a freeze frame for your Timeline that will display as a still image that lasts for several seconds in your movie.
