Can Adobe Premier Pro do this?

Hi,

I have a rather unique problem in terms of video editing.

I don't need to edit them at all, but I need something that can capture every frame and well save it as a JPEG or some sort of picture file in sequence.

The file formats are: AVCHD, MPEG 4, Motion JPEG.

Anybody knows if Adobe Premier Pro can do this? I'm considering getting it, but good to find out first since googling hasn't managed to get me what I'm looking for.

Thanks.

Oh, forgot to state:

Purpose of filming is for research. Split the videos into frames, and track instantaneous motion of the subject (no its not cars).

Setup:

- one Canon HG20 tracking the overall motion of the subject in question from a distance.

- 3 random compact digital cameras & Creative / Flip predecessors on video mode filming close up from different angles. They have a low chance of surviving in this environment anyway, plus my budget isn't very big, so might as well go for quantity over quality.

I heard about rolling shutter & stuff, my prof says its OK for the HG20 but for the others they all use CCDs for sensors so no rolling shutter.

I just checked the manual for CS3 and it says that you can output still image sequences as tiff, targa, gif, bitmap or filmstrip (flm). The last two formats are Windows only. It should be fairly simple to do as you can output an entire clip or just a segment.

It also shouldn't matter what the source format is.

Tripp is correct. You won't be able to capture as a still sequence in Premiere- but you can capture or import the video and then export that video as a still image sequence. If you have access to After Effects, you can export as JPEGs (if file size is a concern). If Premiere doesn't provide adequate exporting options for the desired file type, another option is to export as a TIFF sequence and then run an automated script in Photoshop to convert those TIFFs to JPEGs or whichever format is best for you. Hope this helps!

I'm using Premiere Elements 7.0, and it has the option to export the entire movie as JPG or TIFFs.
