Movie2Shot

 

Mac software Movie2Shot

 

Description:

 

Take movie snapshots with just one click.  Movie2Shot allows the user to take movie snapshots quickly and easily.  All you have to do is set your default export settings (rescaled resolution, graphic format, export destination...).  And drag and drop a movie file onto a media drop box.  Then scrub the movie and click on the export button or press Command + T.  Find another frame and click on the export button.

If you are too busy scrubing a movie to export snapshots for yourself, let Movie2Shot do the job automatically.  Movie2Shot allows the user to generate movie snapshots in a simple manner like every 30 seconds or every 200 seconds not just on a single movie but also on multiple movie files at a time.
