I see a lot of awesome icons around LJ taken from various television shows, movies, etc and am wondering if anyone knows of any (preferably free) programs one uses to take screenshots/segments from DVD's they own. I have a Jasc animation free trial that will run out soon and I am not sure if I can use that for such a huge file (transporting one episode just to shorten down to a couple frames takes a loooong time).
I'd ask for certain poses of a certain show if someone else had those scenes but I am very precise in what exact frames I need so I need to do this myself, really. I tried to look for avatar making communities on here but couldn't find what I need. If anyone has any advice or knows of a great site/community that would answer my questions that'd be sweet.
