    How to locate my snapshot file ?

    ryan_khoo Level 1

      Hi there,

       

      I know this is an easy question but I am stuck.

       

      I just did a snapshot & it has a camera click like sound. (I click on the small icon below the window).

       

      Question is, how do I locate the file ?

       

      Thanks a lot.

       

      Cheers

          Are you talking about the Export Frame button in the Program Monitor panel in Premiere Pro?

           

          I suspect that you're not---that you're actually talking about the Take Snapshot button at the bottom of the Composition panel in After Effects.

           

          The reason that I'm confused is that you're asking in the Premiere Pro forum, but you mentioned the button making a sound, which happens in After Effects.

           

          Anyway, if you're talking about After Effects, the snapshots aren't written to disk; that's not what they're for. See this page.

           

          If you're talking about Premiere Pro, just click the button again, and you'll see the path to where the exported frames are written.

            Sorry Todd for the confusion.

             

            I am actually talking about AE & I posted on the wrong section.

             

            And thanks the answer is Compostion > Save Frame As

             

            Thanks again

              Ryan,

               

              Hey, I just learned something from your post - did not know that the Export Frame/Snapshot button in AE made a sound. Now I know, so all is not lost.

               

              Good luck,

                  That is correct. However, I have not spent as much time there, as I used to. Just been too busy to be on that many fourms. Heck, I am even seldom posting to my favorite wine and food forum nowadays.

                   

                  Good luck,
