    How do I capture a paused dvd frame to a picture?

    Does anybody know if it is possible to capture a paused dvd recording from my camcorder and make a jpeg image out of it? I have made a dvd from our vacation and would like to make a still photo of a couple of things.
    I have Windows XP and have tried to do it with media player and movie maker, but couldn't figure it out. I also tried using the Power DVD player and it had a button with a picture of a camera on it and it said "capture". I clicked on "send to file" and "send to clipboard", but nothing ever showed up.

    Thanks for any help you can give me.

    Re: How do I capture a paused dvd frame to a picture?

    If you play the DVD can you pause it and use the screen capture? (Ctrl+Print Screen and paste into Paint, etc.)

    VLC can do this for you.

    VLC media player - Open Source Multimedia Framework and Player

    This is the only video player I use.

    Did you go to the location where you sent the file, and did you paste what you sent to the clipboard?

    You can also try ctrl + Print Screen, then paste the image into a photo editor (even Paint will work), and crop to your satisfaction.

    That's because you've only copied the contents of the screen. You have to open Paint, then hit Ctrl+P to paste the capture so it can be saved.

    Ok, I opened paint and pasted, then it just shows the "Power DVD" blue title bar at the top and a black screen that was pasted to paint.

    OK, now I got it. I used ctrl + P instead of ctrl + prt scrn and it worked.

    Thanks!

    Shift + print screen captures the frame on the screen NOT ctrl +print screen.

    Screen Hunter 4.0 Free will capture anything on your screen. It will capture the entire screen or just the active portion.
