How to take still pictures from a 4K video shoot

Published in Production

With video cameras now sporting 4K video - that's the equivalent of 8 Megapixels, each frame is capable of looking like a pretty decent still photograph. This means that not only can you grab high quality frames from video to use in still image media, it might actually be the best way in the future to do still photography, because you will have a wonderful, 24 or even 60 frames per second to choose your stills from

Occasionally, one comes across a piece of equipment that one likes. This process is often unscientific, although anyone in a technical trade will usually grow to appreciate equipment that works well, particularly if it's competitively priced as well

Even though ML has done a great job in packaging their software, it's quite a technical operation. Some people might not want to try this on their precious cameras - and that's understandable.

With this in mind, RedShark contributor Chris Cory has made this "How To" guide for us. It's very detailed, and just what you need to get you up and running with this exciting software.

As ever, neither we nor Chris can take responsibility if anything goes wrong!
