Try VirtualDub, just scan through, find the frames and then copy to clipboard. You can also run various filters such as resize, deinterlace, etc.

If your using WinDVD on your computer, then press the P key when your on the scene you want. When you press the P key, it takes a capture of that frame and creates a .bmp and put's it in the C:\Program Files\WinDVD\cache folder.

The folder may not be called cache, it may be capture, I'm not at my system to verify it right now but it will be a sub folder under the WinDVD folder.


Oops, just re-read your post that you wanted to capture an AVI file, the instructions I gave are for DVD's but I'll leave this info here for anyone else that's interested.

WinDVD can also play AVI's and therefor presumably capture frames from them, as can any other player.. The problem is getting the exact frame you want.

VirtualDub would be much easier/quicker to scan through and find the exact frames which is why I suggested it.

tmpg can also do it. Just go into advanced settings source range and find the frame.

thanks for the help again chaps. Virtual dub sounds easiest, so I will use that one.
