In this course, author Ashley Kennedy focuses on getting you comfortable with each aspect of the editing process in Final Cut—from preparation and organization, to editing and refining, to audio and effects, to media management and exporting. Each stage of the postproduction workflow is explained thoroughly and concisely, and uses real-world examples from both narrative and documentary workflows.

In this movie, we will take a look at how to export a still image from anywhere from within your project or Event Library. So I am going to come up to my Event Library, and let's go ahead and export one of these frames from the Farm Scenery keyword collection. How about my orange here? So I am just going to park here, and then I am going to come down to my Share menu, and then I am going to choose Add Destination. Now I'm going to choose Save Current Frame. I'll go ahead and double-click, and I get this window here where I select the type of file I want to create.
I want a high-quality file, so I think TIFF is good. And you have this box here, which you will almost certainly want to check, Scale image to preserve aspect ratio. A lot of video formats actually compress an image horizontally. So you wiill want to check this to prevent from ending up with a 4 by 3 image, rather than a 16 by 9 image, which is the aspect ratio of our video frame. Okay, so I am all set here, I am going to close this. And then I can come in and choose Save Current Frame which is what I just added. And I have here some information that I can change some settings.
Again, I can change the type here if I want to. But then I just hit Next and then choose where I want to save it. I'll go ahead and do that and minimize Final Cut, and there it is. We have got a high-quality still image of our video frame.
