    Please forgive the silly question :P but is there a way to take a picture from a movie after it has been compressed?

    you could always use the print screen button on you’r keyboard then paste it into paint.

    Compressed to what? If it’s just an avi then you can just run that through VideoMach and export a certain jpg. If it’s in RM, run it through TINRA to make an avi and follow the steps above. If it’s in DivX, well, I don’t know about that. If you want to do it the way Nate described, AnalogX Screen Capture is a good program for capturing the entire screen. You just would need to edit the picture in paint to have just the film, but the capturing clarity of the program is great.

    If this film is one of yours, I suggest that for the future you keep ALL FILES used in the making of the film even long after it is compressed. If you have a CD burner, that’s a great way to keep that information organized. If this film you’re talking about is not done by you, then just disregard this paragraph. :D

    Hali uses some screen capture software to get the pics for the Directory, but I don’t know what it is.

    Thanks guys. The movie was a .wmv. I deleted the original footage (oh well :roll) I think I’ll try to download AnalogX screen capture when (if) I get my good computer online. :P
