If some videos created by other people have a Ken Burns effect, is it possible for me to remove it and get static full screen view?

From Wikipedia:

The Ken Burns effect is a type of panning and zooming effect used in film and video production from still imagery. The feature enables a widely used technique of embedding still photographs in motion pictures, displayed with slow zooming and panning effects, and fading transitions between frames.

In theory you could take screenshots and stitch them together. Any photo editor that has a panorama stitching feature can do this. The question is how sharp are those individual screenshots? It may be necessary to go frame by frame to find the sharpest.
