    • This includes DVDs or BluRays you own. Even if you own the DVD or BluRay, it is still technically illegal under the DMCA to break the encryption. While some may argue otherwise, until the law is rewritten or the US Supreme Court strikes it down, we will adhere to the current intent of the law.

Series of still images from a movie

What is the easiest way to get a series of images from a movie?

I have seen much posted on getting 1 image at a time, but I need something that will take a movie and automatically grab images from every x seconds, where I can set x to be whatever I want it to be.

I have seen programs that do this but create almost a mosaic or montage - but I need individual images.

If I can watermark, all the better, but it's not a show-stopper.

Thanks in advance for recommendations. :)
