Thread: grabbing a single frame as a jpg/gif

    Default grabbing a single frame as a jpg/gif

    OK, I know how to grab a sequence of frames using a script but how do I capture a single frame.

    Say I move the curser in the timeline to a specified point and want to capture as a jpg/gif exactly what is displayed in the preview window.

    any ideas anyone!

    Just click the little floppy disc icon in the preview window. Job done.

    Yep, I know the feeling. I think it saves eaxctly, size and quality, what you see.

    yeah! I already set the preview to max when I capture frames. I spent ages looking through the help files for 'single capture'. Just goes to show that sometimes it is right under your nose.

    I have alway assosiated the 'floppy disk' icon with 'save project/file'. If only I had run the mouse pointer over the icons for the tool tips... ah well!
