I need a screenshot of Rachel about to fall into the well!
I need a screenshot of Rachel when she's about to fall into the well--you know, when she has her arms outspread right after the TV hits her? I would do it myself with my copy of The Ring on Kazaa, but Kazaa has decided it doesn't want to work for me. Would a nice person please get me a screenshot of this scene? I need it for my website :/ Thanks, all!

Samara: Well, I'm back from Eola. They've helped me to cope with you and understand you. How are you on this fine day?
Alex:Well, I found this really disturbing video tape, and I decided to alter it some. It's really pretty now!
Samara: .......

Re: I need a screenshot of Rachel about to fall into the wel
The most obvious way would be to simply find a good screenshot program, and use that. I ought to find a good screenshot program myself one of these days.

I'm sure there's other programs that'll rip a frame directly from the .avi, but unless you already have one of those, just taking a screenshot would be easier.

Ido it the hard way: Print Screen the paused player, paste to Paint, crop and clip into Photopaint and from there convert to jpeg. Problem is, the rips have very poor quality and a blue tinge.

Re: Screenshots
The easiest way I've found to take screenshots from an AVI is to use VirtualDub. You can quickly scan through the keyframes by holding shift and moving the slider. When you get close, you can use the arrows to go to the exact frame you want. Then all you have to do is go to "Copy source frame to the clipboard" in the Video menu. Paste it into IrfanView (another great program) and save it as any format you want.

Before you die... you GOTTA see The Ring!

A request
As many of you probably don't know, I was the winner of the Ebay auction for Aidan's "over the bed" picture. (The one that spelt out his name.) So I'm looking for someone that has a picture of it (doesn't have to be a screen capture) that they can send me/post. Obviously, the clearer, the better.

Re: google?
I would recommend doing a search for "+the ring -lord -of". The plus adds "the" which otherwise would be ignored as being too common. The minus ignores hits with those words.

Re: google?
I use Soundforge 6.0 to extract any frame from films and any audio segment. It is actually an overkill because it is a pro audio and video editing software with DirectX and it is not cheap. I use it for mastering, recording, and editing.

Yeah baby...groovy
