Thread: export single frame

  1. Default export single frame

    Is it possible to render or export a single frame as a jpeg, png or other image file?

    I'm using vegas pro11

    Yes.
    Ensure the frame you require is under the timeline curson (and hence displayed in the previwe window)
    Immediately above the preview window are a number of icons. The floppy disk icon (rightmost on my Version 12) is "save snapshot to file" - click and follow the prompts.

    Follow Tims advice but also make sure the preview quality is best full, this will give you the best quality image.

    I thought I'd read that snapshots were always exported as best/full now. But maybe I'm mistaken and/or maybe this was in version 12. I can't find it in release notes noew other than the following for release 9:
    "Copy Snapshot to Clipboard and Save Snapshot to File now deinterlace interlaced images and operate at Best (Full) resolution if the Video Preview is set to (Auto) size and Good quality if set to Draft or Preview. "

    So - I suggest you do what Midnight says!

    Tim,
    it seems that the snapshots are indeed exported as best/full since v 10. As of v 10, when you save, you see the Preview Quality flash to best/full.

    I'm sure you are both right but it didn't work for me yesterday using version 12 ! perhaps I was just expecting it to not look as good, so I just didn't see it as looking as good.

    Good, I've not fully lost the plot just yet. I've just tested it again and found that preview half snap shot is a smaller or lower resolution image to the one done with best full. The "quality" may be the same but it's a smaller image.

    That's to be expected - the snippet I quoted says the snapshot will be "Good quality if preview is set to Draft or Preview"

    the easiest way is to take a still picture of your screen by command - Shift - 3
