Thank you in advance.

Hello, Ale!

An ExtendScript script (.jsx file) or HTML5 panel (which calls ExtendScript) can do that. Please write me directly, and I'll get you a sample script (and panel) which do so.

Hi Ale,

It should be possible using scripting.  Bruce Bullis can share more details.

If .png is okay, you can just use PProPanel's exportCurrentFrameAsPNG() function:

https://github.com/Adobe-CEP/Samples/blob/master/PProPanel/jsx/PPRO/Premiere.jsx#L62

If you'd like more control, use encodeSequence(), as demonstrated in PProPanel's render() function; set the in and out points to the beginning and end of the frame you want, and use a still-related .epr file.

Thank you,

I've tried using exportCurrentFrameAsPNG function and it had no effect. the function inside, activeSequence.exportFramePNG returns false. it was on premiere 11.1.2

First I tried copying the function from the example, after that didn't work I downloaded and installed the whole PProPanel, and even there any function that uses exportFramePNG doesn't work, for example the button that exports frames from markers moves the playhead along each of the markers, but still nothing is exported.

Is it broken? Is there a replacement function?

Thanks

I've confirmed that PProPanel loads and runs, and exportCurrentFrameAsPNG() is working correctly. Check your ~/Desktop for .png files.

Perhaps you didn't have an active sequence, when you invoked it?

Hi, where and how do you define "presetPath" when exporting as png? It's not defined nowhere in PProPanel. At least I didn't find it.

Thanks!
