Download Video2Photo
In a recent tutorial, I provided instructions on grabbing a still image from a video file using VirtualDub and Windows Movie Maker. Another free option, recommended by subscriber Elfi, is Video2Photo. The app accepts input from a variety of “live” sources, including digital video cameras, live streams, TV tuner cards, and Webcams. Video2Photo also processes AVI, MPEG-1, MPEG-2 and still image formats. Essentially, you locate the section of video you want to grab a still, apply some effects (like deinterlacing and color correction) if desired, and outputting a finished image file. A pre-buffer option is available to capture high-motion images. Free registration is required to get rid of nag screen and image watermark. [Windows 9x/2k/XP $0.00]
