    Hi!
    I would like to create a still frame from my movie, in imovie, and then print that image...
    How do i do that?
    Because when I do create still frame from the menu, and then drag the still frame clip to the desktop, it makes a ".dv" file, and not a printable jpeg file...
    Help?
    THANKS YOU!

    Instead of using Create Still Frame, use Save Frame.... from the File menu.

    another way to do it:

    iMovie, along with the project file, creates a quicktime movie (approx 100kbytes) which willl hold references to the actual .dv files, and will play them exactly as if you were playing them through iMovie. So, If you open your movie from that file, you will be able to save any frame you want!
