Software to extract images from DVD
Can anyone recommend software to extract video images from DVD's one frame at a time?

I have Premiere Pro 2.0 but it will not load on my laptop. I also Have Pinnacle 8.0 but this doesn't seem to work with DVD as the source.

Should I try to convert the DVD to AVI or MPEG (what software do I need to do this?)?

Thanks for your advice

Is the DVD copy protected? Most commercial DVDs are.

The DVD is ours - made by us. Pinnacle is looking for MPEG and avi, or DV from a camcorder.

If you made the CD, don't you have the source of the video?

Courtland - yes, but I need the screenshot saved as an image to insert in my letter. Whenever I pause the video and do a printscreen, it copies the link to the video, not the image.

JohnWill - the video was taken a while ago by one of our techs, but I believe it was erased (from tape). I am trying to find the original tape now - the program I have will work with DV

Snagit 8 does video capture. I haven't used that feature of it, but it's supposed to do the trick. I know it's a really handy utility for my work with standard screen captures, very slick.

Most video playing software has this feature, in Windows Medai Player press ctrl-I which will put it on the clipboard. Paste in your favorite image editing aplication.

Well that's a new one on me, do you mean a link (creates a shortcut) to the DVD on the drive?

Anyhow right click on your desktop and select properties>settings>advanced>troubleshoot and slide the hardware acceleration slider to 0. Now try to grab it using prt scrn. Make sure to slide it back to 100% when you're done.
