How to Batch Export Wide Still images

Hello,
I'm currently working on a project that uses Widescreen. I have no problems exporting the movie project to DVDstudio pro file, but when I try to Batch Export the Still Clips I took, it makes it into 4:3 size, rather than 16:9. Because of this, pictures look squished. How would I fix this since I didn't see any options in Batch Export for wide.
I'm using Final Cut Pro 5.0.4

As mentioned above, that is a possibility. You haven't said how you plan to use them. If quality is paramount I would advise against doing a "destructive" stretch on them unless you're moving them to a final definitive size as in web graphics. There's little enough resolution in SD video to start with.
If you're using them in the print world they will fare much better if they are stretched within the production app. Just ignore the aspect ratio and tell it they're an inch by 9/16ths, or 16x9 cm, or whatever system you're working with.
If you dig around in Photoshop, they have a system to identify and deal with with NTSC tall pixels, perhaps they have one for anamorphic as well. More confusing than helpful to me.

  • How do you export a still image from a sequence ?

    I could easily export a frame as still image in CS3 (File / export / ...)
    But how do you do this in CS4 ??... Adobe found another way of making something simple so difficult !...  I try to export media, then select a still image format, make sure ''export sequence'' is *not* selected, but when I look at the output, what I get is not where I had stopped the cursor and appeared on the monitor, but I get the first frame of the sequence instead.
    What am I doing wrong here ?
    Thanks,
    Rob

    Your way should work, it worked for me.
    Try reading this:
    Select a clip in the Project panel or a Timeline.
    Choose File > Export > Media.
    In the Export Settings dialog box, select a still-image format from the Format menu. See Export Settings Format options.
    If tabs are not visible below the Summary pane, click the Advanced Mode button.
    On the Video tab, deselect the Export As Sequence option (if it is selected).
    (Optional) To deinterlace the frame, select Progressive from the Field Type menu.
    (Optional) To correct the pixel aspect ratio for display on computer screens, select Square Pixels from the Aspect menu.
    Click the Output Name hot text.
    Browse to the location where you want to save the still-image file, type a filename for it, and click Save.
    In the Export Settings viewing area, drag the playhead to the frame you want to export as a still image.
    Click OK.
    Check no.10 did you drag the playhead in the export settings viewing area? Or did you do that on the timeline?
    Good luck.

  • Exporting many still images

    The thread on exporting a still image reminds me to ask how you can export a whole series of stills. I often want to export a lot of stills from a film to use in graphics programmes but wonder if there is a way to do this without having to work my way through each individual clip. On a previous editing system I used to create a whole lot of one frame clips and then exported selection of them all and they appeared as tifs (or whatever). Does FCP have something similar. I have feeling that I once did something similare using batch export but cannot remember how even when I re read the help.

    Yes it does. Once you've assembled the frames you want to export, set an IN and OUT point, the go to File->Export->Using QuickTime Conversion. In the export window, choose "Image Sequence" and then choose the file format you want from the OPTIONS button. Make sure you create a folder for the files to go into.

  • How can I export a still picture from a video clip?

    How can I export a still picture from a video clip?

    I'm able to export stills from iMovie without anything extra. I create a new project - call it Exports say. Now, in your event clip with the frames you want as stills, select a single frame and drag it into your project. Repeat for other stills you want to export. Then choose Share -> Export Using QuickTime.
    In the pop-up, choose Movie to Image Sequence. Click Options and choose the image format you want. Playing with the number of stills lets you pick how many stills you want from each second of video. Hit OK and the stills will be generated in the directory you choose.
    I've only done this with HD video. Don't know how well it works with lower res, interlaced vid.

  • Create and export a still image form video?

    How do I create and then export a still image from my video? Is it the same as freeze frame? It seems like that is different? I looked on youtube and a guy was telling how to do it, but he said to go up to share at the top and it is not there on my version. I think perhaps he was using an older version.. So to cut to the chase.. How do I create a still photo form my vdieo then export it to desktop or iphoto?

    You seem to have added to "Save Current Frame" option to the destinations, but you are not using, if what you are outputting is a video file and not a still image file.
    Now, click Next..., choose a file name and folder to save it on. That is just that.

  • Exporting JPEG still images in Final cut 5

    Just wondering if anyone can tell me how to export a still image from final cut?
    I used to have final cut 3 and it was as simple as file/export/quicktime...
    but now it only gives me options for a quicktime movie...
    Thanks...
    Jeremy.

    Instead of "export to quicktime" choose "export using qt conversion".
    Then in options selects the type of still you want.

  • How do i make a still image (photo) fit the length of the music? I record music and want to put the tracks to a video file with a still image of my business logo in the background. Any help?

    How do I make a still image (photo) fit the length of the music? I record music and want to convert the tracks to a video file with a still image of my business logo in the background. On windows movie maker you could just select "fit to music" but this program isnt as easy to figure out! Any help?

    Double-click on the still image in the project timeline to open the Inspector. In the Inspector, adjust the duration by typing in a new duration to match the length of your music. I think the limit for a still image is 10 minutes. If you need more than this, simply drag the image into the timeline again then adjust its duration. The two images will play seamlessly (no gap will be visible).
    See this iMovie Help topic:
    http://help.apple.com/imovie/#mov3a883915
    You can achieve more precision when entering durations by changing a preference in the menu item iMovie Preferences. Check (tick) the preference for Show Time As HH:MM:SS:frames. This will enable you to enter the duration of stills down to the frame level, rather than full seconds (NTSC is 30 frames per second; PAL is 25 fps). When entering times, type a colon between each time segment, such as 2:50:15, which represents 2 minutes 50 seconds and 15 frames. For 5 seconds 20 frames you would enter 5:20 and so forth.
    Note that the music will only run to the length of the video in the timeline (in your case, the still images). So, after increasing the stills duration you will need to drag the end of the music track as far as required. The stills can be dragged inwards to reduce the duration if necessary.

  • Export to Still Image only exports PICT. PICT not supported in 64-bit

    Quicktime Player Pro 7 only exports still images as Quicktime compressed images in a PICT container. However, neither Preview nor Photoshop CS5 read PICT files anymore. (There don't seem to be any 64-bit PICT handlers)
    So I can export a still image out of a movie?

    Yes. Either use Leopard OS for QT 7 Pro export as a PICT and Preview to covert to another format or use MPEG Streamclip (free) to export the frame directly to JPEG, TIFFF, and/or PNG formats under Snow Leopard OS.

  • How do i get a still image to fade the same way and at the same time as a video?

    I have a video stacked on top of a still image. When i add a transition, the still turns to a black screen while the video fades in accordance to the transition. How do i get the still image to fade the same way and at the same time as the video?

    I do. I've applied it to both the  still image and the video. Say i used the lens flare transition. If i apply it to both the video and the still image, the video will dissolve in to the next frame, but the still image will go to a black screen and then jump to the next frame. Its almost as if i inserted a black frame instead of a transition, but only for 2 seconds. Below is kind of a peek what it looks like.

  • How can I take a still image from a video?

    How can I take a still image from a video?

    I'll assume you want to create a still to use outside FCPX, not a still frame within FCPX.  It's kinda hidden in the "share."  Go File/Share/Add Destination.  You want "Save Current Frame."  After you've created that destination, it'll be there for you in the future under Share.

  • Action batch export issue with image trace

    So, currently I'm working on batch processing jpeg sequences using illustrator's image trace and distortion effects. I have batch exported the image traces of the sequences via Adobe bridge.  Now I'm trying to create an action which opens the .ai files containing those image traces, apply a graphic style to the trace, and export a png from that.  I'm banging my head against the wall trying to get this to work right now. If I do the steps (step by step... not using a recorded action) I want on a single file, it works great, but the moment I batch export using the action I've created, it puts the original .png image that the image trace was linked to, on top of the image. The result is a bunch of .png exports that look exactly like my original image sequence.  If I add a "save" function to the action and open the resulting .ai files, I can see that the image trace vectors are in the file. The "linked png" however visible on the layer above those vectors.  Anyone have any idea what I'm doing wrong? How do I get rid of that pesky linked image.
    Also, for anyone who might be thinking that it has something to do with expanding the image trace before applying effects, this issue I'm running into, I've determined, is happening higher up in the hierarchy of the actions... If I simply make an action to open the image trace illustrator file and save it back out, the same issue occurs... placing the .png "linked file" on top of the vector image.
    While I'm at it, I might as well ask if anyone knows how to change the illustrator default image trace preset.... Without being able to change it, or much less specify in the action sequence that I'd like to use a user created image trace preset rather than the default setting, it's greatly overcomplicating my workflow. Makes what could easily be one-step batch processing into two. Seems pretty silly if you ask me.
    Please, if you guys have any insights on this, let me know. It's super frustrating... By the way, if you're wondering what type of effect I'm going for, the idea (as well as some explanation into their own process) starts at 12:44 of this video (http://vimeo.com/77427470).
    THANKS!

    Just wanted to let you guys know, for anyone who might be having my same issue... My home computer, even after a fresh install of Illustrator, was still placing the linked jpeg over the traced vector shapes when batch exporting... I did however find a workaround.  Rather than using Bridge CS6 for the batch image tracing, I used Bridge CS5 to trace in Illustrator CS5. Then, I used Illustrator CS6 to batch export an action that imported and applied an effect to those image traced sequences.  When you do this, it forces you to expand the tracing on import (because of the difference in Illustrator versions I'm assuming).  This way, when you batch run the action, it's already working with expanded vector shapes.  Not sure why this works, but it does.
    Also, I was having some issues getting Illustrator to apply the graphic style when batch exporting. I got it to work by copying an object with that particular graphic style to the clipboard, then adding in the action I was running a "paste" command, followed by a "clear" command.  I can only assume that Illustrator was having issues loading custom graphics styles while batch exporting. The paste/delete technique is annoying, but gets it done.
    Anyways. Just wanted to check in on this one. I'm happy I was able to muscle my way through it all.

  • How to output video as still image frames?

    Hi there,
    We need to convert a movie file which has something like 375 frames into 60 still image files. How could we go about doing this using After Effects?
    We have a lot of movie files to convert, is there a way to batch process this so that we can have it processing over the weekend?
    I'd really appreciate anyone's help!
    Thanks!
    Abi

    That link is helpful.
    So if I wanted to render a batch process, I simply add all the movie files into the render queue and then specify for each of the files where I want them to be outputted to... And then once the render button is clicked it will do all of the items in the queue?
    For example, for one composition I have 'Best Settings' selected for 'Render Settings' and then for the 'Output Module' I have it set as 'Based on "Lossless" '...
    The 'Output Module' settings I have as the format 'JPEG Sequence', 'Post-Render Action: None', 'Video Output' is ticked; 'Channels: RGB', 'Depth: Millions of Colors".
    I am outputting it to a specific folder.
    Are these settings more or less correct for what I want to do?
    Apologies for basic questions being asked, I don't want to start the process for it to go wrong when I am not here to oversee it!!!
    Thanks!
