taking Raw image files from Raw video - 1dx Mark III?

Do you think it is possible to pull Raw image files from Raw video? Theoretically, you could shoot raw video and pull raw image files and edit them. This way one person could do photography and videography at the same time... Do you think it is possible?

Any ideas?

Even if it's theoretically possible, the practical ramifications are that what makes for good video also makes for crappy stills in many cases - that being the effective shutter speed. Shutter speeds that make for smooth motion also make for blurry stills much of the time. And usually even the raw video files are much smaller in pixel dimension than a corresponding still image shot with the same camera, unless you've got something like 8K raw.

I see! You are totally right. Yes, I was thinking about the Canon R5 8k video... :)
