how do I capture full sized still images out of 4 K video using Sony ar 7 ii camera?

How do I capture full-still images from 4 K video using Sony ar 7 ii camera?  I would like an app to be developed so that I can capture still images in camera.  I cannot find a post processing softward that does not down size the still image.  The down sized images cannot be printed in large sizes without lack of image quality.

Hi StephanieHazen,

 

Please make sure to set the highest quality video option available on the camera.

 

You can use the Sony PlayMemories Home software to capture stills on a video:

 

 

  1. In the PlayMemories Home menu bar, under Edit, select Edit/Convert.
  2. Select Save Frame on the Edit/Convert Videos menu.
  3. Click the video you want to edit, drag and drop it into the area on the right, and then click Next.
  4. In the Save Frame window, move the slider to select the frame you want to capture and click Save.
  5. In the Picture Saved window, click OK.

N) Filter: For videos that contain markers, you can select the markers to be displayed.
O) Trimming: You can set the aspect ratio to be trimmed.
P) Autocorrect: You can correct the brightness and contrast of a photo to the most suitable levels for that image automatically (The default setting is "Standard").
Q) Preview: You can see a preview of the photo that is cut-out.

Anthony,  the 4 K video I made today from my Sony ar7ii was 4 k and the file was .mov which is not supported by Sony Play Memories video editing software.  What to do?

The A7R II can save movies in any of the following file formats: XAVC S 4K, XAVC S HD, AVCHD, and MP4. The "mov" file you've got is a result of processing one of these files into a QuickTime movie, presumeably on your Macintosh computer.

 

PlayMemories will work with the movie files straight from the camera, not the files you've created from them.
