Is there a way to crop within a SINGLE frame and then keeping the crop as a still image?
Right now I have a footage of a puppy. When I select a single frame to crop the puppy, the still image of the puppy doesn't stay stationary as the video plays.
It simply plays the video WITHIN the cropped shape. How can I prevent this?
I thought that the question was a bit different---that ectobuilder wanted to take a movie, extract a still frame from it, and just have the still play.
In that case, you'd just export a single still image and then use that as the source for a layer in your composition.
I'll recommend again that it is best to work one's way through the basic materials first.
