SnapMotion : Easily extract images from video

By JeremyCreation

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


This version is specially made for OS X 10.7, 10.8 and 10.9.
A new version named SnapMotion 3 is available on the Mac AppStore for OS X 10.10 and later.

SnapMotion is an application which allows you to extract images from videos in a quick and simple way. Extracted images are in the best possible quality and can be resized before being saved.

With SnapMotion, you can manually extract an image from any point in a video, or, they can be extracted automatically every at intervals you define.

Moreover, SnapMotion includes now a batch processing window. You can extract images from multiple files and then export them with a watermark and a custom output name.

The application can play and extract from all videos which can be opened in Quicktime

SnapMotion does its job

Overcomes the problem that Quicktime7 exports .pct, which can’t be opened by Photoshop any more. Does take a little time to load source videos, but is simple to use, and the batch processing works great. You can select a bunch of pictures from a bunch of different videos and grab them all at once. Capturing can be automatic (every so many seconds/frames) or manually. Files are numbered by time - either seconds or HH:MM:SS:MS. You can set output file as .jpeg or .png and they come out in the video’s native resolution. Nice extras are that you can add a watermark and save settings for re-use later. Big problem solver.

Great app!!

Found this app after a few failures with others and couldn’t be happier. For what I’m working on I specifically needed JPEGs as screen grabs won’t cut it due to the poor res. Unless I’m missing something, I’ve got exactly what I need to meet the criteria. I saw a prior review stating video load time was long. I find it takes about 3 seconds and it’s there and ready to go. Perfect to me. No complaints there. The app has stopped on two occasions. For $3.99 it’s still not too much of a headache to quit — sometimes force quit — then pull it back up in a second. And go again. Love it.

Great app for the money

Very pleased, does everything I expected plus a lot more. Very nice to be able to just set the controls to take pictures every second, Every three seconds, or what ever amount of time you want to program it for all the way down to .1 second. I am in event videographer and this makes A nice optional add-on once you have the edited master. The only negative thing that I would have to say is the help menu leaves a lot to be desired. But if you play around with it for a while you should be able to figure out most things.
