Change the preview to Best (Full) and then take a snapshot. Even better - change it to deinterlaced as well.

The scripting options will make all these changes for you and then reset everything back after taking the snapshot.

Do you not have the option to do it in-camera?

I love that function in the Z5 for quick and easy production stills.

For the best quality, you will need it de-interlaced too. Note that it will not work so well in high motion situations as you're effectively working at what would be a stills shutter speed of 1/25 sec (1 frame PAL) or 1/30 sec (1 frame NTSC). Also, your maximum image size is obviously limited to your original frame size unless you resize and interpolate.

First of all, I should note that scripts only work in the Pro version so anyone with a "Movie Studio" version can't use scripts.

The script I use for this purpose is Excalibur which has a BUNCH of snapshot options. However, it isn't free. There are some free snapshot scripts, though. Here's one free script: Save Snapshot at Cursor

Nothing to change. Just use the script to generate the snapshot and then print as desired.
