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?


Thanks,
Carl

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.
