Exporting a PNG rather than a PDF

Often a frame capture is needed for all sorts of documentation (Doc, PowerPoint, Help files, marketing collateral). Many types of illustration files.

A PDF is not designed for this. A PNG is.

Please add an option to export to PNG, like export to PDF works.

David, this feature is in VideoScribe (with a subscription)... and to give you choice you can also create a JPG sequence as well!

When you publish a scribe if you scroll through the format options you'll see those 2 options. 


I did this and got thousands of PNG files.  Is there a way to just import the last shot?

You should export a pdf if you just want 1 screenshot

A png sequence gives you 25 pngs for each second of video. To get fewer pngs you would have to reduce some or all of your animation, transition and pause times.

This is marketing and educational presentation tool.

Grabbing a frame as a png or jpg at proper resolution for use in other media is an essential. A PODF is perfectly unusdable.

You can do this in other tools likeCamtasia or ProShow Producer - capturing a single frame as a hi-res image out of a video or animation.

This is a missing piece - like kerning. Hoping it's improved.
