Uploading and Loding Picture ...(0/1)

Is there a way to pull a photo from a video? As in, pause a video at a good spot and do a sort of screen capture or something like that to get a picture of that moment?

And is there a way to include a photo in a video? I use Davinci Resolve but could use another app if needed.

Thanks for your help!

Beautiful pic, by the way...

Just play the video frame by frame until you see the frame you want, print screen and either save to Paint or if you have One Drive installed, it is in your OneDrive's pictures/screenshot folder.

That is how I get my stills
If you need the picture enlarged for wall posters, I use this online enlarger:

You should be able to split the video where you want to put the picture, drop the picture in the spot and it should default to either 5, 7 or 10 second duration adjustable frome there.

Thanks so much! Do you mean print screen of the computer itself, or within the video app? Do you lose a lot of quality that way?

your video editing software should have the ability to export a frame as a jpeg. for DaVinci Resolve:

1. Scrub to the image that you would like to export.
2. Click over to the color workspace
3. From the menu bar choose "View > Stills > Grab Stills"
4. This puts a still over in the Gallery area
5. Right click (secondary click) on the image that was just created and select "Export"
6. Choose Export settings and then save the file where you would like

to import you can do this by a setting in the Storage section, dots at top, in the media page.

Hmm, I grabbed the still up to step 3, but can't find the picture anywhere in the gallery or elsewhere

Sid,

I have not heard about DaVinci Resolve.  The functionality is very impressive.  It also appears there is a free version.

Questions:
1) Are you using the free version and does it have enough features that makes it worth using?
2) It looks complex.  What is the learning curve?

Thanks, Mark

I am definitely an amateur at video editing but have found Resolve to be fairly easy to use thanks to tons of instructional youtube videos and the manual, and a friend that does a lot of editing says it's an amazing app equal to the ones that cost hundreds of dollars - even the basic, free app. The pro version is only needed if you really are a pro.

I use Premiere Pro, but all video editors have a learning curve. The experience is similar to learning to drive a car. You are trained on one car and know that pretty well. If you drive another car you have to get used to the peculiarities of that car. All editors are doing pretty much the same thing just have different ways a presenting their options.

Once you learn the mechanics of editing the rest is your creative input and how you tell your stories.
