Hi all,

I wasn't sure where to post this. I'm currently compiling still frames from my DVD collection for lighting reference. This was fairly easy on my old PC, as most of the software players I used like PowerDVD had a frame grab utility. Now I'm on a Mac and the DVD Player app. does not allow you to grab still frames. So I'd like to know how you Mac users get around this - is there some trick to get it to work, or do you have to use another program?

Thanks guys.

You need the "capture" widget, which goes into dashboard.
