How to Capture a Still Frame from a DVD.

When designing a DVD label, I like to use some screen shots from the DVD itself. The DVD I am referring to is the one I create for a client.

The fastest way to capture a DVD still frame is to use Nero Show Time.

Insert the DVD into the DVD drive. Use Nero Show Time to play the DVD. Search and Pause at the position of the desired frame. Then right click on the picture. A menu will appear. Select "Capture frame".

The picture will be captured and saved in the clipboard.

Next I will use my favorite image editing software and select "paste". A beautiful still bmp picture will appear.

Nero Show Time is part of a whole package of Nero 6 DVD creation software.

How to Draw Anime/Chibi Using ONLY a PC and a Mouse.

Just did a web research last friday on how I can use the PC to draw anime characters, or rather chibi characters (big head small body).

Most of the tips given over the web require you to draw on paper first, then scan it and finally touch up with photoshop.

Why go through all that hassle, when you can draw it directly onto the PC.

That is what I did over the weekend.

Boy! Was I surprised. why didn't anyone tell me this trick earlier.

Can you believe it? I drew "Robin and Marian" using only the PC, MS Paint and the mouse. No extra equipment was used.

YES! MS Paint! The under-rated program that come free with every PC!

Email me if you would like to know how it was done.


UPDATE: 18 months later...

Look what I did with amazing MSpaint and mouse.
Watch how I draw a manga, not anime or chibi.
