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.
