    Hi, ive been trying to find a SIMPLE SMALL tool to take a screen shot of a movie trailer and i can't seem to find one. NOT VIDEO(like camstudio). I have tried vlc player and nero 7(nero is my main editing soft.) but the quality they give is horrible. I asked this guy what he uses
    and he said intervideo windvd. I've looked it up and it seems like a very HEAVY LARGE program...i cant have that. Is there any SMALL app that will allow me to take HIGH RESOLUTION screenshots of trailers in there NATIVE SIZE(instead of resizing like nero). Thanks very much to those who help.

    you want JUST PICTURE screen shots, use the "Print Screen" button on your keyboard (Top right corner) then go to paint and Ctrl + V to paste it and save it as a jpeg, there is your screen shot

    I use a program called Snag-It. I use it for video capture/screen shots.

    Dunno how harsh it is on resources though.

    I like snagit too. But not sure if it possible to record the video with HIGH RESOLUTION. You'd better have a free trial before buy. Hope it helps.
