Using Photoshop to create an image sequence from video

 

It is possible to use Photoshop to create an image sequence from a video, in other words to convert video to a sequence of images.

 

I covered how to do this using Premiere Pro in this post but it is easy to do the same without leaving Photoshop.

 

In that post I covered using a timelapse but here it is standard video.

 

Here is the process.

 

❶ Open your video in Photoshop

  • The Timeline window should display below your video, if it doesn’t then go to Window>Timeline
  • Drag the sliders at left and right to set a work area, here I have chosen approximately 6 seconds but you could use the whole video clip

❷ Render Video

  • Go to File>Export>Render Video…

 

File>Export>Render Video...File>Export>Render Video...

 

  • Click on Adobe Media Encoder and then choose Photoshop Image Sequence

  • Here you can confirm various settings, you can choose the Range - set here to be the work area from Step  or you can choose All Frames or even a selection.
  • I have left Frame Rate to be the same as the original Canon file by choosing Document Frame Rate
  • Adjust the JPEG quality settings if necessary

  • Click on Render

 

 

❸ Check Folder

  • Here this folder contains the individual frames, for working from

If you need to create images from a piece of moving footage, then this method can help to narrow down a section to work from or, as mentioned in the post link above, to create a long exposure from a video - see here.

Thanks for the post. Very useful. Just want to mention than when exporting asimage sequence, there are a number fo choices when it comes to file formats. It doesn't have to be just JPEG, there are options for PNG, JPEG2000, TIFF, and Photoshop

Thank you very much for the post. I have applied it as an illustration for my longboard website (https://longboardbrand.com/)
Before that, I took screenshots and the quality is quite poor, now it's better.

Thank you again very much!
