No you wont get any benefit of doing that vs just taking a photo and cropping it. Because of Video compression it will probably be even worse.

Thanks Tmjc

Sometimes image quality is not the only things that I go after.  I like airshows and have attended a few times.   Each time I try to get, among other things, image of a crossing of two Blue Angels (they flight fast in opposite direction and meet somewhere at show center).  I got close but never at the exact moment.  My thoughts: if I can record video this event at 30fps, (perhaps) I can pick and choose the precise moment.
