AVT VideoStills is a powerful tool to extract still images from video files.
You can extract the images at different sizes including the encoded pixel size for videos with non square pixels. That can be useful if you want to use the still images in your video editing software with other footage with the same dimensions.
You can extract still images with a fixed number of images or at a given time interval. If you want you can also place markers at the images you are interested in and let the app extract only those marked images.

Supported Video files:

• QuickTime movies (mov)
• MPEG4-movies (mp4, m4v)
• DV Streams (dv)
• 3GPP (3gp, 3g2)
• MPEG (mpg, m1v, mpeg)
• AVI (avi)**

• Windows Media (wmv)*
• Matroska (mkv)**
• Flash Video (flv)**

* Windows Media files need the installation of "Flip4Mac".
** Matroska and Flash Video files need the installation of "Perian".

Does what the title says

This is a great app for grabbing a series of still images out of a video file. You can configure how many images to grab, or the rate at which it grabs them. You can control the size and type of the output files. It works quickly and reliably.

There is one small bug: if you try to grab still images from a movie shot on an iPhone in portrait orientation, the images will out distorted. The fix for this is to open the video in Quicktime and export it. Grabbing still images from the exported file works great.

Was looking for something like this

Nice piece of software. The full version works on ProRes, can be set to pull stills at intervals, or a set number per clip, or by setting markers on a timeline. Simple but effective for this one task and lightning fast. Excellent work!
