Markers to output Screenshots for PDF/SLIDES/PPT

Whenever I produce video tutorials I always produce any accompanying set of printable/presentable collateral in the form of Google Slides/PPT/PDF

Was wondering if there was an opportunity here for the addition of functionality that allows you to place "makers" throughout the timeline for the appropriate "Screenshots" that would be required to generate this material.

Then the functionality to export this data (these screenshots) for use in generating accompanying material?

Or am I missing a trick/being a bit thick here?

well, you can always stick markers in the project where you need a screen shot, then use ctl-F to save a frame [as a png] of that location in the project

is that what you're looking for?

That is exactly what I'm after...........So - just confirming: I can place multiple markers and then ctl-F will save all those frames as PNG files?

yes; but you need to execute 1 at a time

perhaps try and see?

Aaaaaah, what I was hoping for was an "All at once" type scenario i.e. go through and place all markers and then execute.

Yup have just tried it and it is a 1 @ a time execute.......So I'll leave this Idea here.

But thanks for the tip - it does make life easier for me - MUCHLY appreciate!
