Google Chrome Now Lets You Copy Video Stills For Easy Sharing

The “Copy Video Frame” feature will create better-quality images.

Google Chrome now makes capturing video stills easier than ever after a new feature was added to the popular web browser.

The company acknowledged the struggle users previously faced when trying to capture video stills, noting that screenshots often produced low-quality images with the video progress bar shown at the bottom.

Today, those issues are gone, and for users of any Chromium-based browser (Such as Chrome, Microsoft Edge, or Brave), capturing high-quality stills is as simple as hitting pause, right-clicking, and selecting the “Copy Video Frame” option from the menu.

After trying the new feature ourselves, we noticed that it does have a few issues. For example, you’ll need to right-click twice on YouTube to access the menu: One click will bring up YouTube’s own menu, while the second click reveals the correct Chrome menu with the “Copy Video Frame” option.

Once a user copies a video still, they can paste it directly into another app, such as Google Docs or Apple Notes, for example.

Right now, there’s no option to save a copied video frame directly to your desktop as a standalone file. The feature is also limited when used on videos from streaming services, with many sites restricting the ability to capture their content. So far, we’ve had the best luck using “Copy Video Frame” on YouTube, which is no surprise given that Google’s parent company, Alphabet, owns the video-streaming giant.

The “Copy Video Frame” feature is available now on all desktop platforms that can run Google Chrome, including MacOS, Windows, Linux, and ChromeOS.

Adobe Teases New AI Editing Tools And Updates In Premiere Pro

The video editing app will be enhanced with a generative extend tool, text-to-video, improved timeline waveforms, and more.



adobe teases new ai editing tools and updates in premiere pro

After launching the generative AI model Firefly last year, Adobe is now showcasing how the technology will be used in upcoming versions of the editing app Premiere Pro. In an early sneak peek, the company demonstrated several new features, including Object Addition and Removal, Generative Extend, and Text to Video.

The first new feature, Generative Extend, targets a common video editing problem by using AI to “Seamlessly add frames to make clips longer, so it’s easier to perfectly time edits and add smooth transitions”.

Meanwhile, Premiere Pro’s Object Addition & Removal tool will leverage Firefly’s generative AI to “Simply select and track objects, then replace them. Remove unwanted items, change an actor’s wardrobe or quickly add set dressings such as a painting or photorealistic flowers on a desk,” Adobe states.

Adobe also showcased another new feature that can automatically generate new film clips using a text prompt. To use the content creation tool, editors can “Simply type text into a prompt or upload reference images. These clips can be used to ideate and create storyboards, or to create B-roll for augmenting live action footage,” Adobe explained. The company seems to be commercializing this particular feature extremely quickly, considering generative AI video only appeared a few months ago.

The new additions to Premiere Pro will be added later this year, but Adobe is also introducing smaller improvements to the editing app in May. The changes include interactive fade handles to enable easier transitions, an Essential Sound badge that uses AI to “automatically tag audio clips as dialogue, music, sound effects or ambience, and add a new icon so editors get one-click, instant access to the right controls for the job”, along with effect badges and a new look for waveforms in the timeline.
