There are many uses for these snapshots. You can use these video pictures to create title slides. I like to find an interesting video scene that seems to symbolize my movie and capture a snapshot of it. You could also add a title directly to the picture using a photo-editing program. You could e-mail hi-light pictures of your video to friends and family. Not everyone can receive or view videos, so these pictures are a great alternative (and they don't take as long to download). You can also use the snapshot feature to transform your camcorder into a low-resolution digital camera. Simply point your camcorder at your subject and later you can go through your video and take virtual snapshots directly off the captured video. The actual process of taking these snapshot is quite easy. While viewing a video clip in the preview monitor, pause the clip at an appropriate spot, and click the "SnapShot" button under the preview monitor. Program will then ask you where you would like to save the picture.
