A few questions about screencapping

I've checked the memories multiple times, so my answer either isn't there, or I'm not looking hard enough. Either way, I need help.

  • In Windows Media Player, I've followed all the instructions in this tutorial (I've turned off video acceleration and unchecked "Snap Slider to common speeds"), and I still can't take screencaps. When I paste, it still does that thing where the part where the movie is playing, the image doesn't move. (I know that doesn't make sense, but I'm sure some of you know what I'm talking about.) Is there anything I haven't done, or anything else I can do to make this work for me?


  • Is it possible to take caps with RealPlayer?


  • I read in the Memories that if I change a DVD file to divx, then I can play it in VirtualDub. How do I convert the file?


  • Thanks, everyone. :)

    A few questions about PSP - text and brush file and creating lines

    hi i have a couple of questions about PSP8

    1. does anyone have any advice for making text crisper and clearer i have problems making it really clear, like i created the icon below but the words aren't very crisp. i had anti alias on.


    2. Is there any way to organise brushes into folders or something in PSP so i can keep them in files according to the brush maker?

    3. I know how to create text on curves or lines, but i can't seem to draw the lines in the first place. Whenever i do it joins them together and fills in the area beneath to make a triangle or something.Like the icon below; i think i must have it set on the wrong setting but i don't know how to change it



    thanx for any help :)
