  1. I use VLC to do my capping. There’s a setting you can configure that tells it to take a capture every so many frames. I have mine set at 10. So before I leave for work, I start playing a file, and then when I get a chance, I try to weed out any unnecessary or blurry ones.

    As for right now I don’t have my TV hooked up to my computer, but I hope to before the year is out.

      1. Tools->Preferences->Choose the “All” radio button in the bottom left corner->In the left hand pane, scroll down to where it says Video and expand it->Click on the sub-menu named “Filters” put a checkmark in the option in the right pane that says “Scene video filter” ->Next, expand the Filter sub-menu and scroll down until you see the sub-sub-menu named “Scene filter”->In the options on the right, you can change your image format type (PNG, JPG, BMP, etc.), Image width and image height (-1 is default for both of them, and sets the size at the dimensions of the source file), filename prefix (in other words, each file will be named “sceneXXXXX.JPG” where the X is the frame that was captured, The Directory path prefix (where you want the pictures to be saved), and recording ratio (this is how often it will take the screencap. A higher number means fewer caps, a lower number means more caps.)->Click Save.->Close VLC, and then re-open it. (The settings won’t apply until the program has been restarted.)

        If you don’t want it to capture any further, you just need to remove the checkmark you created in the filter sub-menu.

      2. like so?

        after this

        I close and then go to that particular scene and record it or just let it run? After shutting down VCL media player and reopening it

      3. I see the problem. Where you have “woof.file”, it should instead be something like “C:/Users/duckhunter1/Pictures/screencaps/folder/

        You want to tell the program where to store the files.

      4. And you need to make sure the path exists. VLC won’t create folders, so if you direct it into a folder named “Folder1” but you only have “Folder” and “Folder2” you won’t get anything.

      5. Well, for starters, you need a / after the C:

        Otherwise there are three ways you can do this:
        1) Go Into your C:/ Drive in My Computer and create a folder named “Screen Shots”, and then just use C:/Screen Shots as your address (In other words, keep the address really easy.

        2: Click on your address bar and copy the address it gives you. As long as you’re not using a shortcut link, it’ll probably show you what you want. (This is Pretty reliable, but you need to make sure that it starts with a drive first–most likely will look like C:/ or D:/, E:/, etc.)

        3) Place a picture where you want the files to show up. Right click on the file, and select Properties. Then copy the entirety of the text in the area I have highlighted in the image below. Then add a slash after you paste it all in.

  2. when you get too it can you do Rewind Rewind when Josh is naked in the forest and Ray finds him

    1. I set my computer up to do caps before I leave for work, and then I just have to go through the caps when I get time. I’ve gotten up through episode 10 capped already (except episode 9 was corrupted, so I have to fix that). I just need to go through all the files. (Each episode is around 6,000 files.) I will have it at some point, though.

      1. okay what capping system do you use and is your tv hooked up to your computer

      2. All you should have to do next is play the video and move the pictures to where you want them.

      3. how do you move the pictures to where you want them it made a video of the movie I recorded

      4. When you’re in the “Scene video filter” sub-sub-menu, you should have put in a location you want the pictures to go to. Find that location on your hard drive and there should be image files there. To move them, you just select them all, cut, and paste in a folder named for what it is.

      5. I have a regular dvd player after I do everything the files should be in the folder i choose? What do you mean cut and paste shouldnt I play the video first? or record the video I want so the images to the file folder?

      6. After you’ve configured everything and have closed and reopened the program, VLC will screencap anything you play through it until you disable it. So all you should have to do at this point is play the file you created (or watch the DVD) and it will do all the work behind the scenes. But then you need to be careful because if you start watching something else and you haven’t moved or renamed the files from the first video, it’ll start writing the new files over the old files.

      7. I have done everything you said I record the video and it still a video and not taking the pictures or indival pictures. do I have to make the height and width a certain number

      8. You can put in dimensions for the height and width, but if you switch between a DVD (720×480) to Blu-Ray (1920×1080), the images won’t adjust to the new resolution automatically. That’s the benefit of the -1 in those fields.
