How to Take Video Screenshots

Do you blog about movies or TV programs and need an easy way to add illustrations? Or maybe you need to grab a screenshot from a video to include in a presentation? The traditional approach of using the print screen function is not very convenient; it takes too long and sometimes needs assistance from third party programs that are fraught with potential pitfalls. That’s why Movavi has developed an easy way to capture frames from video and save them as image files. Movavi Video Converter for Windows and Mac supports a huge range of video formats, so you can use it to take a picture from any video you want.

Start by downloading Movavi Video Converter and then follow our step-by-step instructions below on capturing “photos” from video.

This guide is for the previous version of Movavi Video Converter. The information will be updated in the near future. You can download the latest version of the app here.

Step 1: Install the Video to Picture Conversion Program

Double-click on the downloaded file to start the software installation process, then follow the on-screen instructions.

Step 2: Add the Video

Click the Add Video button and locate the file you want to use for your video to frame conversion. You can also drag and drop the video into the program window from the folder in which it’s stored.

Step 3: Find Your Frame

Once the file has been added to the program, go to the preview window on the right side of the program interface and move the marker along the seek bar to find the specific moment you want to save as a screenshot. You can also view this process in Full Screen mode – just click the appropriate button under the seek bar.

Step 4: Capture Image from Video

To save the selected frame as an image, click Take a Snapshot (the camera button under the seek bar). A dialogue box will appear in which you can specify the output format for the captured frame(s) and the folder in which you want to save them.
