Trying to get jpg from video, right mouse click not doing anything, can any one advise?
I love Filmora, but the snapshot and freeze frame options are lacking behind other editors. I do instructional videos and require a stop-explain-and move on...and it needs to be fluid. The ideal way is to get it from the editor, because you can place it exactly where it needs to be...making a fluid stop and go. But resolution is awful in final video. So, I went the route of extracting the snapshot from the original source. Great resolution, but REALLY hard to place it in the video EXACTLY where it needs to go. Many times I have a stop-explain-go with jump (shot not in right place). I use another editor that is great in fluid freeze frame from the editor (with matching resolution). I save the clip and bring it into the Filmora timeline. However, the other editor is upgrading so well, and I'm getting tired of using 2 editors to get the results I need, I am slowly using the other editor more than Filmora now...just because of this one issue.
So what I wnt to do is not to find one frame but to actually convert the whole video to frames. I think there are some free websites that would do it. But I'd rather use watt I've already paid for with Filmora. Can Filmora convert a video file down to the frames it's made of?
What you said is true, but the most important thing is do not drag and drop the video clips in the timeline before you preview it.
The most important thing is do not drag and drop the video clips in the timeline. Select the video in the media library, play it in the preview window, find the frame, click the camera icon to get the screenshot. The screenshot has the same resolution as the original video clip. And then you can drag and drop the screenshot to your video and set up the duration of the screenshot to get a freeze frame effect. You can try it and let me know if it works for you.
It would be better if we can get the screenshot in Filmora directly. I have tried this method: Select the video in the Media Library (DO NOT DROP IT TO THE TIMELINE) and then click the Play button in the Preview Window. Take a screenshot when the video is playing simply by pressing the Snapshot/camera icon or via pressing CTRL+ALT+S. You can try it and check if it works.

You need to make the video full screen, then find the frame you want and then click the camera button
Laffer - I don't know what flash and hold is good for our how it works. But you don't need to play the video in full screen, and you don't need print screen. Just go to your media library within the program, select the original video. Play that. It's not a preview of your work. It's the original video. Find the frame you want to snapshot and then take the snapshot. The snapshot should now be in your media library, to use in the rest of your work. If that's not clear, please let me know.
Jason - you mean play the original video full screen, find the frame, then snapshot it using Print Screen, save that image and drag it back into Wondershare as a high rez image? That completely defeats the purpose of the Flash and Hold tool, don't you think? Forgive me if I misunderstood your comment, and thanks for sharing.
