Does anyone know what program I can use to capture a frame from a DVD video? I have a computer with the DVD player. I would like to freeze a frame on the DVD player then import the frame into a graphics program so I can save it as a picture. I tried a screen capture program but the area where the DVD screen is comes out as a purple field. (was using Photoshop 5) What I want to do is just capture the window not the entire screen.
The reason is I need the pic at the highest resolution possible so I can zoom into details.

I've tried to do this as well, but with an MPEG instead of DVD. I also got the purple screen..

You might try selecting another window and then resizing it to be as small as possible, and then take a screenshot.. if the video window is the active one, the screen capture won't work. There's no guarantee that this trick will work either, but I've used it with other video sources in the past...
