From EOF Productions:
FrameShots Video Screen Capture takes snapshots of MPEG, AVI, WMV, Quicktime, DivX, FLV, and other files to create thumbnails. Features include the ability to navigate frame by frame to capture a frame of video and the option to autotrim any black borders around your videos. The thumbnail creator allows you to copy entire frames or only the snapshot straight to the Clipboard for transferring to Photoshop or any other image-editing software. The frame grabber also has a batch mode, which will automatically make a thumbnail at periodic, set intervals during multiple videos. The program includes support for DRM-protected videos and command-line support for making screen captures out of your entire video library.
What's new in this version: Version 3.1 adds the codec installer to keep your system up to date.

"Did almost exactly what I needed it to do"
Version: FrameShots 3
It was quite intuitive to use and allowed very small increments between frames in order to extract the best possible screen capture jpgs.
Not quite enough information in the Help section to make it quite clear what the relationship is between the maximum output resolution permitted by the program and that available from the input video file.
It downloaded efficiently (not too big a file) and functioned well, especially once I'd found empirically how far I could push the output resolution. It was good to be able to choose settings for maximising the quality the screen shot by having Directx installed etc.
"fast, easy, quality"
Version: FrameShots 2.2.5
works fast with ease of use, auto handles most of black edge, batch option
didn't cut all of the black border off, just 90% of it.
"Terrific product! Big timesaver for me."
Version: FrameShots 2.2.5
The "batch" function is awesome. I select a bunch of videos, tell it I want 10 evenly spaced frame captures of each, hit start, and wait a minute... and they're all there, named properly, nice and clear! (If I wanted to, I could also ask it to capture frames each minute in the video.)
Since I publicize online videos, this is a great timesaver.
It also allows me to play individual videos and capture frames that way.
It's not as intuitive as I'd like, and I wish it would automatically name the jpg frame files in interactive mode as nicely as it does in batch.
But to me that's a tiny shortcoming to a great product.
"Pathetic! Don't waste your time"
Version: FrameShots 2.2.2
None at all... unless you like your computer freezing and playing games guessing what the programmers were thinking of when they wrote this.
I have no idea how this could come to be an editor's choice unless the competition is so bad there is no hope for any of us! The only help is poorly written and online only. Don't count on that website being there long when the public finds out how useless this program is. Program freezes up constantly with Windows XP. But that is not all. So much unnecessary clutter is on the screen you will wonder how such a simple task as grabbing a frame can be turned into a complicated nightmare. You will quickly see the reason why software programmers should never be allowed to design the human interface. They have no idea what a human is! Some mistake of nature no doubt. Download this program and you will have no further time in the rest of your life to do anything but initialise and babysit this program. Don't waste your time.
Version: FrameShots 2.0
For a free trial, this is perfect. Sure, the watermark is a bit annoying, but I can live with it!
