Using MovieDek is simple.

The preferences options currently available are as follows:

• Scale: Move the slider to specify the percent scaling of the output images.

• From Frame: Start at this frame (numbering starts at 1).

• To Frame: Stop at this frame. Leave blank to go to the end of the movie.

• Get Frame Count: Get the frame count of a movie file.

• Image Type and Quality: Select an output image format and compression quality for formats that support it.

• Append Frame Count to Filename: Select this option for image names of the form "Image {n} of {m}" where {n} is the current frame and {m} is the total number of frames.

• Copy to: Select a default destination folder for the output images. Use the "Choose..." button to navigate to the selected folder, creating it if necessary.

Ratings and Reviews

Cool tool


I usually pull screen grabs from my film projects manually, but this automates that. If only there was a way to select a screen grab from a particular time in the sequence. It is cool that it captures every screen though..

Well worth the money

This app is excellent. It is very intuitive, and simple to use. It is a massive time saver for someone wanting to create some photos from a video.
