I just recently asked that same question recently. It's:
apple key + shift + 3

and it'll show up on your desktop as a PDF

Try either downloading a free VLC (Video LAN-Client) media player or buy SnapZ Pro X (about $69).

Or Apple Key + Shift + 4, and you'll get the crosshairs which you then can grab just the part of the frame
you need.

There's another freeware app called SnapNDrag. Very easy to use:

If anyone has a PC, Cyberlink's PowerDVD is really easy to grab frames. You can specify where to save them under preferences and then there is a button to click on the player that will grab the frame.
