Still Image Capture (Video Editing Software)

  bear73 12:00 12 Feb 2005


I have a question about still image capturing. I recently used the software that came with my Sony Handycam (Image Viewer for Sony) and was pleased to find a tool that allowed you to take a still image from the video footage that is playing. I managed to get some nice images but they are tiny. Having never used image editing software before I have no idea if this is a usual feature and if they usually come up so small. I can't find any options withing the software to change the size of the still images captured.

In my image viwer the still images captured are only 320 x 240 pixels and if you make them any larger it toally distorts them. I just wondered if anyone had any advice or coud recommend any other softweare that would allow me to capture still images but of a larger (normal photo) size.

Many thanks

The bundled Sony software is not very good, but they have a dv editing suite which is about 60 quid and is excellent. You can take stills much bigger click here
