I've recently bought a new camcorder (Sony TVR 285E).Can you please suggest me softwares(most preferably 'Freewares') for cutting clips and extracting pictures from a video?

Eagerly awaiting your answers...

oh damn. I was gonig to say movie maker but linsky beat me to it! windows movie maker is great for taking stills from images. if you don't have xp then just watch the video in media player, and when the part comes where you want a still, pause the video, press print screen on your keyboard, paste it into an image editor, crop the image so you can just see the video, and save.

Yes, and if your image editor supports it---deinterlace it (video is interlaced and looks pretty bad as a discrete frame).

Extracting still images by pausing is working fine.Actually I tried pressing print screen before but I committed only one mistake-I didn't pause it.By the way,thanks for the tip.

@Cyps,all my videos are not in DVD format.Can you suggest me anyother freeware that can cut videos to several pieces efficiently?

Thanks in advance.
