If you are like me, you often run into cases where you want to take a screen shot of a video but don't trust doing that screen shot in a generic video player. Using adobe Premier to capture a screen shot is recommended if you want a crisp shot.
Step 1: Start New Project
Open Adobe Premier Pro and start a new project
Step 2: Name Project
Name your project and save it either to the default file location or the location of your liking and click on the OK button.
Step 3: Select Video
Choose the video file from the media browser. If the media browser is not displayed double chick on edit at the top of your screen. Make sure that you double click the video file so that it appears in the video player.

Step 4: Extend Viewing Area (Optional)
Change the size of your viewing screen by dragging the borders of the video player. The zoom on the video can also be adjusted.
Step 5: Find the Frame and Get the Shot
Play your video until you get to the frame that you want a screen shot of. At this point press the stop button. You may also drag the blue position finder. Now select the little camera icon to complete a screen shot.
Step 6: Save Your File
Now name your file and click OK.
Step 6: Retrieve Your File
Retrieve your photo by going to the file location that you chose earlier. If you chose the default location and are using Windows, go to:
Documents►Adobe ► Premiere ► Pro ► 12.0
