Pinnacle12 software -- how do i convert videos to still capture photos

I am a new private investigator who has been asked to shoot video surveillance footage, download to my PC and then still capture photos out of the video frames for inclusion in a printed report. I bought Pinnacle 12 and managed to get the video loaded from the HDD of my camera to the HD of my computer. I was able to play the video clips but am completely stumped (even after the tutorial and several cold beers) to figure out how to do it. I need help fast. I have a report due to a client in the a.m. and need stills from the video.

There is a frame grabber program in the video section of the tool kit. As you playback the video, press the button on the left side of the screen. Still image will be save to a folder.

Then you create a new video using the stills. I haven't used version 12 yet but previous versions don't do a slide show that can be controled by a program. You have to create a new video around the still shots and change the timing accordingly.

Nero has software that can take stills and create a slide show from them that can be controlled through a program if thats something you need.

Best way to share camcorder video to website and blog


More and more people likes shooting video about their life to share, recording clips about their companies, products, services to make promotion and win more attention and customers. In deed, great video is more powerful thousands times than text, picture, word. However, how to make great videos and where to place or share these videos, you could gain the expected result.


First, how to make great video:
1. Choose a camcorder to suit your needs;
The following has listed some camcorders for you, according to your needs, choose the most suitable one:
Mini DV camcorders are cheap, reliable, and widely compatible, shooting standard-definition video;
Mini DVD camcorders can shoot video with lower-quality than Mini DV camcorders and play back video instantly on it or a DVD player. The produced video is more difficult to edit.
AVCHD camcorders have ability to produce high-definition video, with high price and the hard-to-edit shot video.
Flip Video Camcorders are portable, easy-to-use solution for capturing everyday moments that happen anywhere, and sharing them with family and friends everywhere
If It was me, I would choose an AVCHD camcorder or flip video camcorder.

2. Shoot video with your chosen camcorder
Before shooting, you can refer to some basic camcorder shooting tips: http://camcorders.about.com/od/videorecordingtips/a/ShootingTips.htm. Well prepared, you can shoot your video with your camcorder.

3. Perfect your capturing video
After you capture videos, you can perfect them with some video editing software. The best recommended ones are iMovie, FCE and FCP. But if you are unsatisfactory with them and own flip video, there is another great flip video editing software, Doremisoft mac flip converter, which can easily edit your flip video on mac.

Second, Where to place or share these videos
Youtube is the first choice to share home videos for most people. Youtube accepts a wide range of video formats, as following: Windows Media Video (.WMV), .3GP (Cell Phones), .AVI (Windows), .MOV (mac), .MP4 (iPod/PSP), .MPEG, .FLV (Adobe Flash), .SWF (Shockwave Flash), .MKV (h.264). Please check the format before you upload your camcorder video to youtube for share.

Actually, to share products video to make promotion for companies and organizations, alternative method to get more attraction is to embed video into website to add your product videos to your company home page so that it can win more visitors and traffic.

So, how to embed camcorders video to website? If you own AVCHD camcorder, please visit the Guide: Publish video to web from AVCHD to Flash on mac. For Flip video camcorders users, visit Guide: Put flip video to web page from Flip Mino&Mino HD, Flip Ultra&Ultra HD camcorder. Another camcorder users, refer to Embed video in website.

Next: Create free flash slideshow for website with photos.

Converting video to pc


2 ways. If you have a fireware port ieee 1394, at the front of cammera, below the microphone, you have a plastic door. Open it, There are tow connectors, the smallest is for 4 pines fireware connector. At the other side, you have a 6 pines fireware connector. Insert this at the ieee 1394 cpu connector (at the front or back of cpu). In xp the cammera is reconognized like other device, and you can open the video shoots. Other way is with a video capture hardware. The otrer connector (the bigest) is for S-Video. Use an apropiate cable, insert in this, and the input of video capture (maybe internal or external at the cpu). Run the video capture utility of your hardware, and you can campure video from the cammera in real time or from the cassette.
