I’m frequently asked how to extract a section of video from a DVD without having to bring the entire movie into a video editing app. One of the easier tools to use is Chopper XP. It’s been around for awhile, but it still does the job better than most. The interface makes it simple to open a DVD file from a disc or from VOB files on your hard drive, drag to the exact position in a movie you want to extract a clip from, mark the start and finish points, and output the file to your hard drive as another VOB file. You’ll still need to convert this new VOB to another format to do anything useful with it, but this is a decent way to grab a few frames of video without messing with convoluted interfaces and bloated software.
