Dead pics


Just was wondering Alex, how do you grab stills from a DVD to put up on the site?

 I guess a DVD Rom in the old computer is a start right? emoticon

Re: Dead pics


A cheap(as low as $[sign in to see URL] US) video capture card would do the trick. Unless I'm mistaken, most stand-alone DVD player's have composite/RCA outputs that readily hook up to these cards. Resolution may not be great in doing that and you'd have to give a PCI slot.
There are also adapters that allow video transfer from any device with composite hook-ups to a computer or vice versa. Many of these adapters come with software for video capture/editing. Dazzle Multimedia makes a lot of products with this purpose in mind which cost less than $50 US Dollars.
Hope this information helps.

[sign in to see URL] use a DVD-rom drive and this program called PowerDVD to capture stills and play the movies etc.

Simple really, you don't have to be a genius to get stills!

Thanks guys, that helped me out. But I actually just found out that one of my buddies has a DVD Rom so it looks like I'm set. Now I can make some sweet ass desktop wallpapers. emoticon

Re: Dead pics


I don't know if this would work, but while watching, pause on the scene you want to capture, do print scr, and then go to paint, go to the dotted rectangle, then go to the blank area, press paste... thats the only way i know [sign in to see URL] gay though..

Re: Dead pics


I use powerdvd to make screenshots. With the programm MGI Photosuite I put off the matted parts of the screen so I only have picture. If I do this the file will be a lot smaller to. Sometimes I let the black parts of the screen on the picture so I can use it for desktop wallpaper emoticon
Most of the time I make screens from day otd, too bad some cool parts are too dark to see anything, like Rickles running from the zombies. But this won't be a problem with the SE dvd. It's also so bad the screen is matted, a lot of screen is deleted this way. And on the SE dvd it's still matted, emoticon such a shame. When I paused the film and use the scroll function I can just make every single screen emoticon, so I can make 25 different screens of the headblast emoticon By the way, don't download stuff to make screenshots of your computer screen. I did this first but if you use it on a dvd, however the movie is running or paused, you'll only get a totally black picture. emoticon I'm happy I can make screens by myself, now I don't have to search the web for cool fragments. I'm only looking for stills but with the SE dvd this won't be a problem any more!
