Need help with creating screen caps [Feb. 5th, 2005|03:09 pm]

What's the best method for getting screen captures from DVDs?

What I tried first was pressing the pause "button" on the DVD interface, then pressing Ctrl+Print Screen and pasting the results into MS Paint, but that method just didn't work. When I first pasted the image into a graphics program (either MS Paint or Paint Shop Pro) it ended up invariably getting cropped differently than it appeared on screen, and then when I reopened the image it was just empty black space. I've been told that Windows Media Player has a "save image" option when the DVD is paused, but I haven't figured out how to activate that.

Hi, i'm Natalee. I photoshop, i do charcoals, i LOVE creating mini-movies although i need better software besides windows movie maker stuff. I've got a very lovely Kodak digital camera 5.0 MEGAPIXEL, and my sony digital camcorder (DCR-TRV140) and the newest edition is my hp pavillion dv1000 series notebook. That's basically my main hardware i work with mostly, although it took me two years to buy the usb the camcorder was supposed to come with. *rolls eyes*....damm sony. I have a first-post question, what is a good site where i can purchase lighting equipment? i'm going to be shooting my first "official" small independant filmy thing in a few months and i really need good lighting...i HATE yellow light in my movies!! well, thanks everyone!!

Need help with creating DVDs [Nov. 6th, 2004|08:52 pm]

OK, so there's these two video projects that have been taking up entirely too much space on my hard drive for a while, so I figured the best thing to do was burn them on to DVDs to free up the disk space. The two biggest obstacles I've faced so far are:

1. I have CD- and DVD-burning software called RecordNow!, but as near as I can tell it'll only let me burn DVDs for the purpose of copying pre-existing discs. Is there a way I can create "original" DVDs with RecordNow!, and if not can anyone recommend reliable (but fairly cheap) software that will let me do that?

2. When I activate Adobe Premiere's MPEG convertor function, it actually ends up creating two files: an MPEG file (with the .m2v extension) with no sound, and a seperate .WAV containing the project's soundtrack. How can I be assured that when I burn a Premiere project onto DVD, the video and sound will be properly synced up?
