    Extracting still images from an MPEG file
    My specs:

    OS 10.4.1
    Powermac G4
    single-processor 1.25 ghtz
    80 GB hard drive
    768 MB RAM

    Dear experts,

    I work at a nonprofit and we're doing an annual report for another nonprofit organization. We'd like to use some images for this report, but theyr'e on an MPEG file. Is there a way to extract still images from an MPEG file, or do we need to buy a utility of some sort? And if we do, is there one that's inexpensive?

    It can also be easily done with FCP

    cmd+shift+4 always worked for me... If there is any motion in the shot you can take it into PS and use the video filter to remove the interlacing.
