Chapter 9. Editing Still Pictures > Creating a Still Clip from a Video Clip

Creating a Still Clip from a Video Clip

Thousands of still images flicker by as we’re watching video—sometimes too quickly. Perhaps you’d like to linger on a sunset or highlight the one short moment when everyone in your family was looking at the camera. You can create a still clip from a single frame of video.

To create a still clip:

1.
Position the Playhead at the frame you wish to use.

2.
Choose Create Still Frame from the Edit menu, or press Command-Shift-S. A new 5-second clip appears on the Shelf, named “Still 03” or similar—iMovie sets the number in the title (Figure 9.6).

Figure 9.6. A new 5-second clip appears on the Shelf when you choose Create Still Frame.
