Hi,
I need a video editing prog for its ability to go slo mo fwd or backward, or allow me to frame by frame fwd or backward, or better still go key frame fwd or backward as KF's give best still images.

Can I get it to go fd or backward to just KeyFrames ?

I drag drop my .mpg to timeline, hit 'home ' key to set it to 00:00:00
hit play and then when neeeded hit Ctrl P and get a still image (I have turned off the naming prompt)
IT STOPS THE MOVIE FROM PLAYING THOUGH.

I want to sit back and watch it play and make stills as it does so, not have to start it running again.

What setting makes it carry on playing as opposed to stop as I need to find that setting !

Cheers

There is no setting to change. PD can't continue previewing because it takes several seconds to save the full resolution screenshot.

If you want to mark where in the timeline these frames are while not interrupting playback, use shift + M at each location to place a timeline marker.

Then you can use the shift + left arrow and shift + right arrow keys to jump to the previous/next marker and make the actual screenshot.

Hi,
When I hit the capture button in Jaksta the sound continues, the video is paused for a moment and starts again in sync with sound a sec or two later, so a sec or two is lost, but it doesnt stop, and its saving a 4K still image.

I am surprised that PD is incapable of doing the same as this free video viewer, especially as its not even saving 3840 but only 1920 from the 3840.

I will use the marker method and return to the markers. Is there a limit on how many I can have as I have asily a hundred or more to make.
