Premiere lets you export a still frame like a capture of what you've got going on here in your project very quickly with a touch of a button. Before I show you how to do that, let me show you why this is so great. I love this frame. It's just beautiful. The colors of the snowboard and the jacket against the sky, the composition of this, something about like the lines, I love this shot to death. So let's say we wanted to have a freeze frame on that where we ended up at 13:11, which is the cool frame here, and we want it to end on that.
We want to have a freeze-frame. Well, what we had to do in the past is split the layer and then right-click on the layer, go to Frame Hold, and then hold on let's say the out point or whatever, and it was so tedious. If you wanted to make a freeze- frame that way, you still can. It's good to know about that technique. But it is much easier to simply go to this camera icon and it says Export Frames. We will click on this and we will leave the name as is. Change the format to something a little bit more conventional like a TIFF or a Targa.
We will go to Browse, and we will go to Media, Stills, choose that folder, go ahead and click OK. Then we could double-click in the Project panel and go to our Stills folder, import that TIFF as a still, and then we could trim the end of our video to that point, and then drag the TIFF file right afterwards. Then we have thereby created a freeze-frame. Very cool, much easier than trying to do a hold frame and not only that but now you have an exported still from your video.
So if you want to show a client like color correction or how things are lining up, or a lower third or graphic that you have created, then this is a great way to do that.
