Simple Program Question.

ZephonateZephonate Registered User regular
Anyone know of an easy-to-use (hopefully free) program that's Mac-compatible for taking DVD screen caps of a good enough quality to make into wallpapers? Forgive my stupidity if VLC somehow has a function of doing higher-than-average quality ones that I didn't know about, or if Leopard's built-in DVD player can do this.

    well, you're not going to get 1:1 quality regardless because DVD resolution is 720x480 and the lowest resolution screen on a Mac currently is 1280x800 on a macbook.

    But ya, to take a screenshot I'd just use OS X's built in screenshot utility.
