All I have is 'Windows Movie Maker' which I believe is using ROXIO

Further to previous. What I am trying to accomplish is making a print of a single video frame. If I can't do it, using WMM, what do I need to get?

So why not pause on the frame and tap PrintScreen?

Then paste that into your photo editor?

Print screen did not work, all I could get was a Black screen, but this one did, except the image is so small that you can't do much with it without a significant deterioration of quality. Does anybody have a better idea? I'm quite willing to purchase special software if need be.

This sounds promising, thanks for the link. Will let you know if it worked for me.

It looked so promising, but when opening WMP I do not see 'Tools' anywhere, so unless there is another solution, I think I'll give up. But thanks for your help.

The old way still works.

Reduce Video acceleration to none. Printscreen and paste to your graphic app and then undo the video acceleration.

At this point I hope you see why omitting details makes this long and drawn out. Few would write how to given no OS or which app!

Here's another hint that it matters.

Is it Windows Live Movie Maker?
by KenHusveg / November 17, 2011 7:29 AM PST
In reply to: Here's a note

Is it Windows Live Movie Maker? If so use Windows Movie Maker instead.
Click Tools, and then click Take Picture from Preview.

or
Use VLC player.
Media --> Advanced Open File...
Open Media --> Add file --> Play.
Video Menu --> Snapshot.
Check your My Pictures folder for your Snapshot.
If it's not there, you'll find the directory in Video Preferences.
Tools --> Preferences --> Video --> Video Snapshots.
