1. Go to FILE > NEW PROJECT and then go to STILL IMAGE.

2. With your one still image opened in AlamDV2, add the effects you want.

3. After adding all the effects you need, click on the first frame that you want exported.

4. If you only have one effect that is one frame long, and you want your exported file to be only one frame long, go to MOVIE > SET OUT FRAME. If you want your film thing to be 2 or more images, but less than 10 or something, and not the 1 minutes worth of images you would normally get, skip to the next step.

5. If your image is more than one image or the effect is more than one frame, select the first frame you want exported and go to MOVIE > SET IN FRAME. Then go to the last frame you want exported and go to MOVIE > SET OUT FRAME.

6. Now that you have set the in and out points of the image/images, you can now go to EXPORT > EXPORT IMAGES. Then choose your settings for that done!

That's it. Now you are done and it will only export the frames you select and you do not have to continuesly hit Esc or close the program to stop it where you want it.. I tried this out because Ada wanted something called a Single Frame Exporter for the next version of AlamDV, so it would only export one image, and not over a minutes worth of images like AlamDV2 does now. So this feature really does not need to be added into the future versions of AlamDV, as it is simple to do yourself. It is only 2 really small extra steps. Its that easy! I hope this helps all those people out there who want to only export one frame and not alot! Bye! biggrin

It because, alam will become more pro, but i think when alam do that in the future, why not when we rendering the footage, we can set the start frame and the end frame, if we whan only one image just click start frame 1, end frame 1 or 2, 2 or 10000000, 10000000 etc. biggrin
