Creating a Still Image from a Movie

With QuickTime Pro, you can export a single frame from a movie as an image file.

To save a still image from a movie:


Move the playhead to the frame you want to export.


Choose File > Export.


Choose “Movie to Picture” from the Export pop-up menu.


Click Options and choose a format from the “Compression type” pop-up menu.

To export every frame from the movie as a series of images, choose “Movie to Image
Sequence.” Exporting every frame can generate a very large number of files; you may
want to export to a folder rather than to the desktop.
