|Subject: Screen Cap Comics for the technologically impaired|
|I have lots of ideas for a Matrix webcomic, but I can't seem to figure out how to capture screen shots from my VOB file. I don't suppose you can walk me through how to capture movie images and crop them?|

|I'm not sure what OS you're using.|
For myself, I'm on Linux, and I have a large array of tools that I use for this.
On Windows, I think the common approach is to use something like DVD Shrink (http://"http://http://www.dvdshrink.org/") to rip the DVD to your harddrive, convert it to an AVI, then perform screen captures on it (in Windows, Alt+PrtScn works wonders).
Doom9.org (http://"http://www.doom9.org") has some good resources for ripping DVDs and converting them to AVIs. One that it mentions is CloneAD (http://"http://www.clonead.co.uk/"), which looks like what you want.
As for resizing pictures, a good general purpose image editor is IrfanView. However, if you're going to make a screen capture comic, you'll need to learn a more powerful editor, like Photoshop or The GIMP.
Let me know if you need any more details.
