Extracting Still Image From Imovie

7 posts in this topic

 

Hi, Mac users! I'm hoping someone knows how - or if it is possible - to extract a single frame from a video in iMovie. I took the video last summer, when I was just learning how to use my new iPhone. I've successfully transferred it to both iPhoto and iMovie. But I want just two or three snippets, and no motion, to include in a layout. Is there a way to do this, or am I delusional? Any advice is welcome!

Hi Jo! Sorry, I don't know but I've always wanted to know the same so hopefully someone will come along with the answer. :)

I do this in Aperture, but I'm pretty sure you can do it in iMovie too. I don't use it though so maybe try googling "extract image from video in iMovie(your version#). I did a general search that came up with several methods inc one in iMovie, but the article was from 2010. Maybe you can find something more recent? There's supposedly iPhone apps that will do this too. Good luck!

MovieTolmage is the 99¢ iPhone app that has this capability. Ok, I'm done now. ;)

Thank you for the link! I did search iMovie help, but not Google or Apple. I've already deleted the videos from my phone, after transferring them to the computer, but the app sounds useful; going to get that!

Thank you again - I finally got the images extracted and cropped, ready to use. The link you provided was very helpful.
