Creating an Extract Action

The extract action will extract keyframes from your asset. You can specify how many keyframes you wish to extract from assets you import, while configuring your extract action. For example, you might want to extract 10 keyframes during the import, and then choose which one will act as the poster keyframe for your asset.
