Chapter 18. Still Pictures and QuickTime... > Creating Still Images from Footage

18.5. Creating Still Images from Footage

iMovie doesn't just take still photos; it can also dish them out. It can grab selected frames from your footage, either for use as frozen frames in your movie or for exporting as graphics files. (You might want a still frame to end a Ken Burns zoom, for example, so that the camera seems to hold still for a moment after the zoom.)

18.5.1. Creating a Still Frame

The Edit → Create Still Frame command creates a still image, in the Clips pane, of the frame currently indicated by the Playhead. You can use the resulting still clip just as you would any still clip: Drag it into your Movie Track, apply effects or transitions to it, change its name or duration, and so on.
