Beginner's guide to Screen Shooting

Let's begin.


What is Screen Shooting?


The process of extracting frames from an episode, movie, animation, picture, etc. It's a tedious process that can be either Automated or Manual.


Wait...Manually?

Yup, some users aren't really up for the task that includes Math, honestly I would beg to differ because WELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Just tell me how to do it then?


Sure, just do the following:-


Download Player

  1. Download VLC Player [Lord of Video players].
  2. Install VLC. I really hope you know how to o-o

Download Episode

  1. Download the episode, I recommend downloading LEGALLY, LEGALLY, PLEASE DO IT SO THAT I DON'T DIE! Kidding, just download from Itunes. ;v;

Setting up your Desk

    • You got two options with VLC, Manual and Automated.

Manual Tutorial

  1. Tap on the view tab and check "Advanced Tools." Check-Advanced-Controls-in-View-Tab.png
or just "Shift + S" while watching a video. (づ。◕‿‿◕。)づ I'm literally crying. .-.

Advanced Tutorial

  1. Open the "Tools" tab. Vlc_Guide_%281%29.jpg
  2. Click Preferences and click that little thing on the bottom left saying "All", click the Videos and don't forget to click that Scene Filter part. VLC_GUIDE_%284%29.png
  3. Follow the tree to destiny and poke the twigs of integrity. (Follow the picture below) ♪~ ᕕ(ᐛ)ᕗ
  • Set the value the ratio to 150 for auto screen shooting every 3 seconds. Vlc_Guide_%282%29.png
4. Save your progress and boom, start watching the video because its gonna auto screen shoot for you, Lazy bum! (ノಠ益ಠ)ノ彡┻━┻

What is FFMPEG?


"A Cross-platform solution to record, convert and stream audio and video. It includes libavcodec - the leading audio/video codec library."


How will this benefit me?


Dude/Dudett, you're gonna strike up evolution with this tech. I'm pretty sure its close to those Area 51 stuff. ;3


Let's begin! [Windows]


  1. Download Ffmpeg.exe directly.
  2. Move it to a recognized Folder. I recommend making a folder in [C:/] named "Test"
  3. Open CMD, it can be found in [C:\Windows\system32] named as "cmd.exe"
  4. Run it as an administrator. PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY!. To run as Administrator, right click on CMD and boom. 650x292xWindows_1010-650x292.jpg.pagespeed.gp%2Bjp%2Bjw%2Bpj%2Bjs%2Brj%2Brp%2Brw%2Bri%2Bcp%2Bmd.ic.iz7SiMFGzS.jpg
  5. Type in the following in Order, assuming you moved FFMPEG to that a folder named "Test" in your C:/ drive and that you renamed the video as "Epi".
cd "C:\Test"
ffmpeg -i Epi.mp4 -r 0.5 Name-%04d.png
6. The above program would generate images for every 2 seconds, if you want to increase it, [x = 1/n] is the formula where 'n' is the seconds gap you seek and x is the value you're to set after '-r'. Remember that you must add the exact extension of your video. TIP: Tab eases finding stuff.
7. Click enter and let the magic begin! VLC_GUIDE_AGAIN_%281%29.png
8. Don't close anything while it's extracting the frames otherwise you're gonna have to restart. Other than that, you get this. VLC_GUIDE_AGAIN_%282%29.png
