Frame Grabber window

The Frame Grabber is shown whenever a video file is selected after selecting a video file in the Open file dialog and is used to acquire still images from the video file.

To use the frame grabber DirectX 9 (or higher) is required (it can be downloaded from Microsoft website). Also you should have the proper video codecs installed to display the video file. As a rule, if Windows Media Player can display a video file properly, also the Frame Grabber will be able to open that same file.

The acquired frames can be shown on screen or saved as BMP images.

Capturing to the screen *

Use Take a Snapshot button to open frames as image files. Each time it is clicked the current video frame will appear beneath the Frame Grabber window, as a new image window. Depending on your system configuration, Bersoft Image Measurement can open more or less image windows at once. If you want to capture many images at once try capturing them to files instead taking snapshots.

Do not try to capture to the screen dozens of frames at once, or the program may respond very slowly or fail.

Capturing to files

The Multiple Frame capture button pauses the video and opens a dialog for selecting the folder where the captured images will be saved and how many images are wanted. Images will be saved as Bitmap (.bmp) files with consecutive numbers.

Navigation controls

Use the navigation buttons at the top of the Frame Grabber window to play, stop,  or pause the video reproduction. The button will advance frame by frame (will not work on .asf files) and the slider adjusts the volume.

To go to an specific point in the video file drag the position slider at the bottom..

* Only the registered version can capture frames to the screen.
