3. If you want to capture a specific moment in time, use the “Time-Lapse” feature on your iPad Pro’s camera app to take multiple screenshots at once, allowing you to choose which one looks best afterwards.

4. To get an even better shot, consider using an external microphone or headset with noise cancellation capabilities for improved audio quality when recording video footage on your iPad Pro’s camera app.

5. When taking screenshots from videos, make sure that there are no distractions in the background such as other people or objects that could detract from what you are trying to capture in your screenshot image.

6. Consider using editing software such as Adobe Photoshop Express or Pixelmator Pro for further enhancing and customizing your video screenshots after they have been taken on your iPad Pro device
