image grabs

Good Morning,

I am working on a project and I wanted to grab stills out of the video footage. This is dead easy in elements, but in pro I have not sorted out how to do that.

so, how do I grab stills in pp1.5???

thank you

Ctrl + Shift + M

I think that will do it, at least in Premiere Pro V2.0.

Yeah, Dale. Move the timely marker to the frame you want to grab, then select export, frame, and select the format you want.

i'm having a problem with this actually..
I have a canon xh-a1 which shoots hdv @ 1440x1080 (1080i) but the aspect ratio is HD anamorphic (1.333).. looks fine in the preview window, exports fine, etc no problem.. but when i do screen grabs they export 4:3. i can manually stretch them with photoshop, paint, etc but its not really ideal as they dont really 'look right' with this method.

any suggestions/alternatives? i tried exporting frame with media player classic when viewing source material and same thing happened.. dont really understand since it worked before fine.

Hi David I've had this issue what I did was export the frame click the settings button click on video, then change the frame size to 1920x1080 and change the pixel aspect ratio to square pixels (1.0)
