Movie2Shot 3 is the 2nd major software upgrade to an existing software title. Its original objective hasn’t changed. And it’s designed to let the user save a movie screenshot at the current frame to their disk with a single click of a button without letting the application prompt them to name a file. Let the application watermark every movie screenshot you take. Let the application frame every movie screenshot you take with a flat color. Save random screenshots to your disk. Save frames only with human faces as pictures to your disk. Save movie screenshots… Well, Movie2Shot 3 offers you 5 different ways by which you can save movie screenshots to your disk.  


  1. Designate a volume or a folder as your shared folder to which to save all movie screenshots. By setting up a shared folder, you wouldn’t be prompted to name each screenshot.
