A CS4 Question
Hi, gang! Because I do video as a sideline, I haven't been able to afford the upgrades to CS5 and/or 6, but I have a question about how to do screen grabs of my video footage? I want to pull grabs in order to create still images to use as headers for various web projects (site, blog, banners, etc). The more recent versions have a camera icon on the source monitor, making this easy, but how is this done in CS4? I scanned the Adobe sites and they're not very helpful. Once you're more than 2 versions old, they don't care about you any more.

Thanks for the assist!

Re: A CS4 Question
For unknown reasons, Adobe made it hard in CS4 to do a simple task. Do file>export>media and select either tiff or windows bitmap (or GIF or Targa, big whoop) when AME opens. Yeah, I know, no jpeg. The frame that should show up in the Adobe Media Encoder preview window should be the same one that your timeline indicator is on. You can scrub the timeline indicator in AME to fine-tune your choice. CS6 has a simple framegrab icon, the way it ought to be.

Re: A CS4 Question
and for bitmap to jpeg, download GIMP (free) and do a "save as"

Cheers, Ian
