Converting still frames from iMovie

Hello, I took some still frames from iMovie (right click on playhead and say something like capture still whatev). I guess they are in .dv format which is fine for iMovie and iDVD, and maybe Final Cut Pro, but what if I want to take that still .dv and put it into photoshop to make a CD label? Photoshop doesn't do .dv, is there some converter I can get to convert from the .dv to the JPEG? or GIF? Thanks for the help.
I'm loving all the free software I can get for my Mac, so hopefully there's a free one out there.

Once you have created it, click on it to highlight and go to File > Save Frame As > and then save it as a .jpeg on the desktop (or wherever). Should be good to go then. I believe the default format is .jpeg.
Did that help?

  • Exporting Still Frames from iMovie

    I have managed to extract still frames from videos and put them back into iMovie. I would now like to export some still frames from iMovie and put them into a Word document. I can't seem to figure out how to do this. Any ideas?

    set playhead at wanted position of clip ..
    ctr-click, choose 'add still frame to Project'
    in Project window, click on new clip, ctrl-click, choose 'reveal in Finder'
    from Finder, copy .jpg to any other location of harddrive
    drag that copy into your document..

  • I need to pull still frame from video.

    How do you pull a still frame from imovie?  I saw a recent discussion about downloading mpeg streamclip.  But, that won't open. 

    Easiest way is to just take a picture of the frame you want. First, full screen the video. Then, pause it where you want the still. Take a screenshot by pressing command, shoft and 3 at the same time. It should save the phto directly to your desktop. Make sure you take the picture when it is on fullscreen. Otherwise, the photo will be bad quality.

  • How to create and export a still frame from a movie in iMovie 09

Apple encourages you to first seek a solution at Apple Support. The following links are provided as is, with no guarantee of the effectiveness or reliability of the information.

    Are you working in iMovie and realize that certain frames in the movie would be perfect as photographs? Here is how to extract them...
    *To get a still frame from an Event*, right-click on the frame and select "Add Still Frame to Project". The still will be added to the end of the current project. Right click on the still frame in the project and select "Reveal in Finder". You will see a jpeg file that is highlighted. Drag this jpeg file in the finder to the iPhoto icon on your dock.
    *If you want a still from a project*, rather than an event, the process is similar, except you right-click on the frame and select "Add Freeze Frame", and it adds the freeze frame at the end of the clip rather than at the end of the project. Right-click/reveal in Finder, drag JPEG to iPhoto icon in dock.
    *If you are not using iPhoto*, and just want to save to your desktop, click Reveal in Finder as above, then COPY, then PASTE to desktop.
    Hint: If you do not want to clutter up your iMovie Project with stills at the end that you would have to go back and delete, then create a separate iMovie Project just for your stills, and follow the instructions for capturing stills from an Event.
    Note: If you do not have a right mouse button, then control-click will work instead of right-click.

    First, click iMovie/About and see which version you have.
    Versoon 9.0.2 would be iMovie 11.
    Follow the instructions [in this post|http://discussions.apple.com/message.jspa?messageID=13065602#13065602]
    If you have Version 8.0.6, that is iMovie 09 and you should see the Reveal In Finder option.

  • How do i create a still frame from a clip in iMovie 11? thanks

    Good morning. How do I create a still frame from a clip in iMovie 11.  Thanks

    First, get an app called MPEG Streamclip, which is free. (google MPEG Streamclip from Squared 5)
    Open MPEG Streamclip.
    In iMovie, select the clip you need. Then, right-click/Reveal in Finder.
    Drag this clip into MPEG Streamclip
    In MPEG Streamclip, move the playhead to the frame you want.
    In MPEG Streamclip, click FILE/EXPORT FRAME.
    Choose JPEG, TIFF, or PNG and give it a name.
    You can then drag this photo into iPhoto.
    Here is a video I made that steps through this...

  • I wish to export several still images from iMovie as JPEG or TIFF. Is it possible to do this using iMovie, if so how? Any advice is greatly appreciated. I've already managed to add a freeze frame to extract the desired frame but I can't export it. Thanks.

    I wish to export several frames from iMovie as if they were images (like JPEGs or TIFFs). Is it possible to do this using iMovie, if so how? Any advice is greatly appreciated. I've already managed to 'add a freeze frame' to isolate the desired frames but I can't export it. Thanks.

    Ach... I found a solution thanks to previous posts which came to light after I'd posted what was obviously a question that had been asked before.

    How can I make a still photo from imovie?

    Let's assume you have iMovie 11 (Version 9). (If you have a different version, let me know. The instructions will be different.)
    First, get an app called MPEG Streamclip, which is free. (google MPEG Streamclip from Squared 5)
    Open MPEG Streamclip.
    In iMovie, select the clip you need. Then, right-click/Reveal in Finder.
    Drag this clip into MPEG Streamclip
    In MPEG Streamclip, move the playhead to the frame you want.
    In MPEG Streamclip, click FILE/EXPORT FRAME.
    Choose JPEG, TIFF, or PNG and give it a name.
    You can then drag this photo into iPhoto.
    I have created a short video Tutorial on how to do this. There is one error in the Tutorial, where it says that Command-click is the same as right-click. I should have said Control-click instead.

    The goal is when I export my movie to iDVD, I want to use still clips from my movie as the rotating images. Right now it either plays through the DVD in the rotating part or I can drag pictures from iPhoto into the slots.

  • Print Out Still Frames From HD Video

    I am importing HD video into iMovie 08. I have made a few still frames from the video for printing. I could not export them to iPhoto or Photoshop Elements 2.
    How can I make HD video prints? Do I need new software?

    I have made a few still frames from the video for printing. I could not export them to iPhoto or Photoshop Elements 2.
    Select the "still frame" sequence and use the "Reveal in Finder" option to take you to the saved "still image" in the named_Project package. If you then double-click the image, it will open in Preview. Using Preview, you can print the image or save it to any of the available image formats in any "visible" location for later access by whatever graphic application you wish to use.

  • How do I import individual frames from iMovie into iPhoto?

    How do I import individual frames from iMovie into iPhoto? Or how do I export individual frames from iMovie into iPhoto? My final goal is to have a DVD of individual photos from a video I recently shot. Thanks

    Here is one way to do it, although you will see there could be variations.
    1) Open iMovie
    2) Start a new project - name it Stills for iPhoto (or a name of your choice)
    3) Go to your EVENT. Find the spot with the cursor that you want a photo of. Right-click (or control-click if you don't have a mouse) and select ADD STILL FRAME TO PROJECT.
    4) The photo should be in the Project called Stills for iPhoto.
    5) Right-click (control-click) on the photo and select REVEAL IN FINDER.
    6)When the finder window opens, right-click and select COPY. Go to your Desktop or a folder of your choice and right-click PASTE
    7) Drag the photo from your Desktop to iPhoto

    It will be right next to the movie in your library and the jpg file will end up on your hard disk right next to the movie file. You can see the actual file by right (or control) clicking on the image in the library view and selecting "show in Finder/Explorer"
