Chapter 5. Working with Still Images > Capturing Still Images

Capturing Still Images

To capture images from your camcorder, you need to have everything connected, tested, and turned on (see Chapters 3 and 4). Operation is similar for digital video (DV) and analog camcorders, so this section covers both. Studio can also grab still images from movie files on disk, whether previously captured within Studio or sourced from another location.

When it comes to capturing still images, DV cameras have one killer feature: the ability to pause on a single frame for multiple seconds without distortion. This makes frame capture from your DV camera frame-accurate. In contrast, most analog camcorders can't pause for more than a moment or two without some image distortion, making it difficult to capture the precise frame you're seeking. For this reason, when you have images you'd like to grab on DV tape, go ahead and grab them from the camera.
