High Rez Stills?
People keep posting these high-rez stills from there footage...any idea how to do it? I've got FCP 4.5, and all I can get are 72 dpi, fairly small shots.

The stills they are posting are 72 dpi as well. What they mean by hi res is that they are screen shots of hi res, also know as HD, footage or SD progressive footage.

You can up res these in photoshop if you need to print something. The way you can get screen shots is to open your clip in QuickTime pro and export a still image. It will be saved as a .pict file.

Another way to do it is to open in QT and use OS X to do a screen capture by hitting appl, shift, 3. Your cursor will turn to cross hairs and you clip and drag around what you want to capture. The resulting image will be saved to your desktop as Image1.pdf, Image2.pdf, Image3.pdf, etc.

Thanks, Dave...I've been using FCP's Quicktime Conversion, but I guess I can cut out the middle man...

Command-shift-4 lets you drag and select. Command-shift-3 takes a shot of the whole screen.

I use a piece of inexpensive shareware called BTVPro for capturing video and playing it back for simple review. It invokes QTime. In capture mode there is the option to capture a frame (or a DV Stream or a QT movie). Press that button, an audible click is emitted by the computer and you have a JPEG file in 720 x 480 resolution. You can then do whatever you want with that image (uprez, deinterlace etc.) in a program like Photoshop.
