How can I grab a still image from the Program Output stream ?


At times, all you really want to capture is a still image from the current Program Output video stream. This is the purpose of TriCaster’s Grab function. Click the Configure button (gear) next to Grab beneath the Program Output monitor to open the Grab Still Configuration panel.


The options presented are similar to those of Record Configuration, though a bit simpler. Again, enter a Base Name. The name you supply which will be numerically incremented as required. Enable the Add to Graphics 2 Playlist switch to automatically include newly captured clips at the end of the current Graphics 2 module playlist, ready for immediate playback during the live production. Grabbed image files are stored in a folder named for the session, inside the main Still folder. ( for more information see User Guide Chapter 3.7)
