Extract High-Quality Still Images from Video

If you need to create still images from video — for a DVD cover, for example — try Aquafadas’ SnapFlow. You can easily navigate through your video frame-by-frame to select the best shots, compare them, then extract single images (or a series) which can be grouped into project folders or assigned a star rating.

SnapFlow also includes several filters for improving the stills, such as Unsharp Mask, Saturation, Brightness, and Contrast. This $129 utility supports all QuickTime formats, including HD, as well as raw HDV/MPEG-2 and AVCHD footage.
