I don't know if this is worth the time and effort.<br><br>Most likely, you'd have to export to DV, then export from QT to a series of still frames, then retouch each individual frame (30 per second), then reimport the way you came..<br><br>At least that's the only way I can think of to do it right now..<br>What exactly are you looking to do? Retouch blemishes on someone's skin or color-correct? Because FCP's color-correction is pretty decent...<br><br>

Exporting numbered image sequences<br> <br> A numbered image sequence exports your edited sequence as a series of numbered image files stored in a folder. Each image file contains one frame of your video. If your frames are interlaced, both fields are together in this file. <br> <br>Most numbered image sequences are exported uncompressed, so these files can be quite large.<br> <br> To export a numbered image sequence:<br> <br>1. Select a clip or sequence in the Browser or open a sequence in the Timeline.<br> 2. Do one of the following: To export the entire clip or sequence, clear all In and Out points.<br><br>To export part of the sequence or clip, set In and Out points.<br> For more information about In and Out points, see Setting and modifying In and Out points.<br><br>3. Choose Export from the File menu, then choose QuickTime from the submenu.<br><br> 4. Choose a location and enter a name for the file.<br><br> 5. Choose Image Sequence from the Format pop-up menu.<br><br> 6. Choose a setting from the Use pop-up menu.<br><br> 7. To select custom video, audio, and Internet streaming settings, click Options. In the Export Image Sequence Settings window, choose your settings, then click OK.<br><br>Format: Choose an image format from the pop-up menu.<br><br>Frames per second: Enter a value or choose an option from the pop-up menu for the frame rate for the images.<br><br>Options: Click here to set additional options, such as alternate bit depth or compression settings, if they are available for the selected format.<br><br>8. When you're ready to export, click Save.<br> A dialog box shows you the progress of the export. <br><br> Each file of the image sequence is named in the form of "Filename 001.ext," where "Filename" is the name you gave, the number (001) is the number of the frame, and ".ext" is an extension indicating the format.<br><br>From there you can open each frame in the sequence in Photoshop and do your retouching or whatever. Save your changes back into the same folder for later import to FCP.<br><br><br><br>"640K ought to be enough for anybody." - Bill Gates

Well, actions would work if you're doing something generic to each frame- like a color change or a brightness adjustment or whatever- but like I said, FCP3 and up has color correction tools built-in, and I would take a serious look at those before killing myself with 10 kajillion frames in Photoshop...<br><br>If you have to do something like remove a mole from someone's face in a video, good luck, because you're going to have to manually do it again and again and again using Photoshop...<br><br><br><br>
