I was so taken with the video montage from Chandu The Magician that I linked to a few weeks ago, I decided I'd like to make my own. I've got a great B-movie with lots of good photography lined up, I've saved it to the hard drive in .mpg format, and I've even found the music I want to accompany it. Now what I need is a program to capture still pictures from the film - screengrabs or screen captures, I don't know which is the correct term. Can anyone recommend some good, easy-to-use software I could download? I'd even be willing to pay for it, if it's not too expensive (I don't think I'll be doing this all THAT much). I think I'll use Windows Moviemaker to assemble the little video - I fiddled around with it and it seems pretty simple. So I'll be working on my Windows Vista program. All I need now is to extract the pictures I want - any ideas?
