frame capturing software???

hey all, i wanted to know if anyone knew of a way to convert a single frame of a .mov file into a jpg, thanks

Why not just take a screen shot of the frame?

Pause the mov at the point where you want to take the picture, press the “print screen” key, then go into some photo program (even MS Paint) and click “edit” and then “paste”.
If the movie is not playing full screen you can then crop around the movie to get the extra stuff out of the picture.

I’ve had the same problem with mov files. Mango’s solution didn’t
work, the area where the vid was playing (paused) appeared as black. I
ended up pausing the video, taking a shot of the screen with a digital
camera and editing that. It worked, two examples are at the bottom of

The Apple’s QuickTime player for Windows will do it. Pause the video and go Edit -> Copy. That will copy that frame to the clipboard. Paste the picture into your favorite graphics program and save it as a JPG.

Hey sorry fellas. You’re right, the screen shot of a mov does just leave you with a black box. :frowning: I just assumed that since it worked with avis that itd work with movs. ohh well

I can back up John Childs’ response. I just tried it and it works just fine.

Sorry once again. :slight_smile:

Thanks all, that really helped!
