Freeze frames – Export a still-image sequence
Export a still-image sequence
To export a still-image sequence:
In the Export Movie dialog box, click the Settings button (Figure 1).
The General panel of the Export Movie Settings dialog box opens.
From the File Type drop-down menu, choose a still-image sequence format (Figure 2).
CompuServe GIF, TIFF, Targa, and Windows Bitmap formats support sequences.
Using the Range drop-down menu, specify how much of the program you want to export (Figure 3):
Entire Sequence: Exports the entire selected sequence.
Work Area Bar: Exports only the part of the sequence below the work area bar.
Set the following options: Open When Finished: Opens the rendered movie automatically upon completion.
Beep When Finished: Alerts you when the rendering process is complete by making your computer beep. If you don’t want to use these options, leave them unselected.
If you’re exporting a CompuServe GIF sequence (also called a GIF sequence), you click the Compile Settings button in the Export Movie Settings dialog box to access additional options.
On the left side of the dialog box, click Video and specify the options you want, such as color depth, frame size, and frame rate.
On the left side of the dialog box, click Keyframe and Rendering to access these options.
In the Keyframe and Rendering panel of the Export Movie Settings dialog box, specify the following options:
Fields: Choose how to export video fields from the drop-down menu. For most DV projects, choose Lower Field First.
Deinterlace Video Footage: Select this option to remove interlacing from each frame before exporting. This option reduces resolution but may be desirable to remove field artifacts.
In the Export Movie Settings dialog box, click OK. The Export Movie Settings dialog box closes, and you return to the Export Movie dialog box.
Specify a destination and file name and click Save (Figure 4).
A Rendering dialog box appears. Adobe Premiere Pro exports the range of frames as a sequence of still image files in the format you specified.
