Hour 4. Importing Source Images > Importing Still Frame Captures

Importing Still Frame Captures

If you have a digital video camera, you can work with single frames from your favorite video. Save your video in a compatible format such as AVI, WMV, MPEG, or QuickTime, and choose File, Import, Frame from Video, as I’ve done in Figure 4.10. Click Browse to locate your video. It will open in the window in the dialog box. Use the video controls to steer to the frame you want to use, and click Grab Frame as it goes by. It will be copied into an Elements window, ready to work with and already labeled with a name similar to the video file. Continue grabbing as many frames as you like, then click Done to close the window.

Figure 4.10. This is a frame from a TV commercial my husband worked on. (Used by permission.)
