Hello World,

Can any one help me in converting mpeg4 video to frames.

I am trying to use them as a background image of my animated 3 D obj.

I'd appreciate it if any one can post an example file for me since I have no idea in using Adobe Premier or final Cut Pro.

Thanks in advance.

Cheers,

Steve

What you want to look for in your export settings is "image sequence." In Premiere, bring up the export window by hitting ctrl+m or cmd+m on mac, change the format to an image format like TIFF, PNG, or JPEG, then check "Export as Sequence" in the video tab. Click export and you're on your way!

EDIT: I forgot to mention, if you're unfamiliar with Premiere, you need to place your video clip on the timeline and trim it down to size before exporting.

Thank you very much.

I am still puzzled.

Would you please post an example premier file for me using any short mp4 files or whatever? I'd appreciate it.

Cheers!

"if you're unfamiliar with Premiere, you need to place your video clip on the timeline and trim it down to size before exporting. "

Is that to say, " trim it down to the one frame desired "? . . . And how does this apply to AVCHD compression which " creates " video frames to fill in between actual photographed and stored camera frames?

I often use stills from my videos as DVD backgrounds. To do this, I first position the timeline marker so the monitor shows what I'd like to use for a still.

 

Then I do File--> Export --> Media and change the format to jpeg in the export settings box.

 

I change the name and destination as necessary by using Output Name also in the export settings box.

 

Click queue to open the Media Encoder

 

Start the encode by using the "Play" arrow in the upper right corner.

 

Should be done quickly. It often takes a few tries to get just the right frame.

 

Hope that is what you're looking for.
