Video Snapshot Wizard is a lightweight software application whose purpose is to help you capture frames from movies. It works with various video formats, such as AVI, ASF, MOV, RM, RMVB, WMV, MKV, VOB, and MPG.

The utility makes a really good impression in the visual department. The GUI reveals a well-structured suite of features.

You can make use of the built-in video player for starting, stopping or pausing the current movie, stepping forward, and seeking for a position in the video streams. Clips can be added in the working environment using the built-in browse button (the drag-and-drop support is not implemented).

What’s more, you can preview the captured frames directly in the main window, thanks to the thumbnail view mode.

Video Snapshot Wizard gives you the possibility to capture a single frame or the next 10/50 ones. In addition, you can make the application automatically capture multiple frames after a certain number or frames or take a single photo at a custom time interval (in milliseconds).

You can embed watermarks to the captured photos. Text watermark can be added by tweaking several parameters related to custom text strings, font, font style, size, color, transparency, and position. Picture watermarks can be embedded by adding a photo (e.g. BMP, GIF, JPE, PNG) and modifying the transparency. Plus, you can crop and resize images, and preview the adjustments in a dedicated panel.

Video Snapshot Wizard lets you save all captured frames or only the selected ones to a custom location on your computer. You set up the output filename, choose the file format (JPEG, BMP, GIF, PNG), and adjust the JPG quality.

What’s more, you can create animated GIFs with the captured frames. GIF files may have a custom size, frame delay, and a certain number of loops. Last but not least, you can create thumbnails which can be exported to JPG or BMP file format, and set the selected frame as your wallpaper.

All things considered, Video Snapshot Wizard makes it easier for you to save frames from your favorite movies, and can be mastered by rookies and professionals alike.
