    Hello all,

    I've taken some high-speed (~1000fps) video footage for a project I'm working on. I've recorded it all onto VHS, such that it can be played back at very slow speed through a normal VCR on a TV, so that I can analyse my experiment. In real-time there's only about 30 seconds of actual footage but this equates to about half an hour when played back on a normal TV.

    Now I've used a TV tuner card to import my video onto my computer (it's now a nice big MPEG file), and I need some software to basically chop it up into small sections (seperate files) and 'grab' the occasional frame to use as pictures in my report.

    Does anyone have any recommendation for software I can use? The simpler the better (ideally I'd just be using Windows Sound Recorder for this, but it doesn't do video!). I tried using Windows Movie Maker but it kept crashing, possibly because when I imported my MPEG it split it up into a few hundred short clips and the overall file size is almost 2Gb.

    Thanks in advance!
