    Is "export frame" the highest quality?

      Hi.  Sometimes I want to have a video clip freeze.  That is to say, the final product will have two or more frames that are identical, taken from a single frame of a movie clip.

       

      The way I've been doing this is using the Source or Program monitor to find the relevant frame, export it, and re-import it as a still.  Yet, it occurs to me that when watching videos in the Source or Program monitors, I am not watching the video at its highest quality.  When I finally render my product, I will render it at highest quality.  Does this cause a mis-match between the exported frame and my final product?

       

      When I "export frame", does Premiere take the time to render that frame at best possible quality?  Or am I just getting a preview-quality frame?
