Frame Capture Guide

Media Player Classic


Can capture image frame from fansubs.
Should function for those using only ffdshow.
It can be more precise than BSPlayer.


Can capture only one frame at a time.


1: Create a new folder to a subdirectory for later use.

2: Open video file and then seek to just before the location of the desired frame/s and pause video.

3: Using the Framestep and Framestep Back keys, (Right & Left arrow keys by default) seek to the desired frame that you want to capture.

4: Then on the above menu, click on File and then click on Save Image... \ The "Save As" tree should then appear allowing you to save the image as a BMP file. Save the file in the new folder that you had created in step 1,.. or if desired, choose any known location to save the file.
(SAVE AS its default name, "snapshotX", where X=current date and time. DO NOT save under a different name other than the default name! Saving under a different name other than the default name will still cause the image file extension bug. Renaming after the image save is no longer required to create following snapshots.)

5: Repeat steps 3 & 4 for every other desired frame that you want to capture.

[Tip: If the following frame looks exactly or is the same as the previous frame, skip over it until you notice a cell change/movement. Yet be sure to give added delay time in that animated GIF for that look alike frame, as to simulate more than one frame. This will help you cut down in total file size.]
