(This idea comes what what we’ve heard here in this community as well as from other customer feedback methods we utilize. The feedback we gather here will help us gauge how well it fits our users’ needs. Please let us know what you think)

The Problem:

Making a image from a frame is hard to find and not intuitive.  Having a frame would make it easier to extend the duration of my video clip or reuse in a different portion of my project

Potential Solution:

Add a right-click option (or hotkey) to save the frame which will put the frame in the media bin and on the track above for easy manipulation.

We see this idea having some overlap with the Ability to extend frame by dragging idea in that it’s a way to allow for extending a visual to match audio length. Due to the higher priority items we’ll be addressing ahead of this idea, we are keeping this idea under consideration for future development. We’ll keep you posted it’s status if that changes.

Here are the definitions of what the statuses mean for Ideas.

Here is the overall vote count for the rest of the Ideas in this round up.
