Windows 7: How do I convert an mp4 video to a sequence of PNG images per frame?

How do I convert an mp4 video to a sequence of PNG images per frame?

Hi, I have an MP4 video that I want to be converted to PNG images (every single frame). I've downloaded a number of programs that claim to do this but not exactly how I want. One program I tried was Avidemux, which is almost what I wanted, but it only outputs to JPG.

I tried virtualdub but the file won't open in it.

So basically, I need something that can output all frames in the video to PNG images.

Thanks.

I haven't used Avidemux in a long time, but if the picture quality is good (or at least tweakable) you can export it to JPG anyway and use another tool to batch convert to PNG.

I remember using Bink (from RAD Game Tools) to watch video game cinematics outside of the actual game, and its video converter had an option you might need. Not sure, though, as I haven't used this one in a very long time, too...


Sorry if I wasted your time xD

Have you tried VLC, I found this - How to Make Screencaps in VLC

I don't think it does frame by frame but it says every 20, 25, 7 or 10 sec can be done, so you probably can set it for as low a 1 sec. It does say it supports png though.

As far as I know, there are so many related apps that can help you extract picture from a video. However, like what you said, most of them only generate JPG picture. It is really a great pity.
