extract photograph from video

Took a video and now decide to extract 1 of the many frames for printing. Is this possible?

Re: extract photograph from video

You'd probably need video-editing software to do that, but bear in mind the resolution of video frames is substantially less than full-frame so you will not get the same quality of print compared to a normal still photo.

IIRC you can do it with the free editing programs Virtualdub or Avidemux (Google is your friend!). You can also take a 'snapshot' with Faststone media player, and probably Irfanview - both also free.

Re: extract photograph from video

Olympus Viewer3 will do it. Its as simple as pausing the video and clicking on extract still. Will that work with your E-330(?) videos?

Not many seem to give much credit or thought to using OV3, but it does do a fair bit really, even if I can do more with Capture One for raw processing, I still use OV3 mostly & still capture from video is one of the things it does fine.

I have yet to try that. Now that you mention it, I did hear something like that when the OV3 was launch. Le me go try it out.

Re: extract photograph from video

This would work better if the framerate of the video is higher. A higher framerate is essential when doing moving video still extraction. If the video is slow moving or still- you're in luck.

Re: extract photograph from video

If you can play your video on your computer, any decent player will be happy to extract single frames.
My personal preferences are Gom and VLC : very easy.
You don't need to use a video editor.
