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.
