Keep moving video forward and mark areas. Make sure you dont mark parts of video of the same place more than once else you will have overlapping images and looks odd if there is a person in that place.

Once you are done, click done and it will start analyzing your video.

You might have to crop image a bit so you can exclude parts of the image but it can be done on borders. Done this you can export your image in TIFF or PNG or HD or JPEG formats.
