Hi Guys

What's the easiest way to capture still frames and save them as jpeg's from avi movie files?


Cheers

Well AVI files arent exactly great, or clear

The picture will only be as good as the original. If the original is crap, the pic will be too

It's never gonna by crystal clear, but from experience, you seem to get better results with VLC than print screen.

I sometimes use a small utility called Image Grabber II.

If you want it I can email it to you.

Thanks Watterus. Just finished capturing the images using VLC quality wasn't to bad all things considered.

Thanks for the offer though Digby.

I 'capture' in Nero Showtime - but I suspect it is a form of printscreen capture. It's OK, but not wonderful. :)

There is a great need for a decent image grabber program, like Image Grabber II, but with a few more features.

Any Graphics coders out there ? I could give you the specs and be a tester.

And split the proceeds 50/50.

You could also try Photoshop CS3 which can import video clips which it then puts each frame on its own layer which is also handy if you are wanting to adjust individual frames or just capture one frame.

Use Xnview. It has an "extract movie frame" option. The extracted frame can then be saved in whatever format you like

Media Player Classic can also do frames or create a thumbnail page with frames from throughout the clip.

Virtual Dub (http://www.google.co.nz/search?q=Virtual+Dub&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a). Its got a frame capture option. Worked wonders in the day of divx encoding.
