Capture a scene from a DVD - Is it possible?


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I'm trying to capture a scene from a DVD to use for a presentation for some friends. I have a Powerpoint slide show ready but this clip will be the 'icing on the cake' as it were.

I've tried various freeware and shareware/payware tools but I just can't seem to get it to work. I had a few thoughts on how to do this, maybe you guys can offer more suggestions?

- Copy the entire DVD to my hard drive and then somehow convert to AVI so I can use Adobe Premiere or another program to capture the clip.

- Use a screen recording program to capture the WinDVD/PowerDVD screen to record it (tried this once but just got a black player window in the recording.

Any help/suggestions are greatly appreciated.

i for one use vm ware.

install a xp on it play the dvd in the guest xp, pause it and go to the vmware menu to take a screenshot

its that simple

I hope you don't recommend things to newcomers because for them that is not simple. A very strange method.
