Movie to stills on A7 iv?

Ok, no laughing!

I only shoot stills, but I keep hearing that the A7iv can shoot 4k video. Well, I generally crop my still images down to 4k because that's generally the maximum definition of most tv's and monitors.

I also understood that a single still frame can be produced from a video stream, so what confuses me is there is all this talk about the FPS still shooting limitations of the A7 iv, when the video streams are available.

I presume that video is shot at more than 10 fps, @ 4k, and we can take as many single shots from that video stream as we want, so isn't the single shooting FPS not a true limitation? I realize that the video stills are not in raw format, but are they in a format similar to jpg? Remember. I said No Laughing!

Thanks for enlightening me :>
