How to extract frames from .mpg short movie ?

If you only need a couple of frames, then I think most playback programs should have some sort of 'Snapshot' capability that you can trigger at opportune moments. If they don't, then I'm very disappointed in them and they should go to their room.
Imagemagick is also a really awesome program for doing these sorts of things. Supposedly the command is...
convert sample.mpeg[N] frame.jpg
...to extract frame number N from an mpeg file.

Anyway, I got off on a tangent and started playing with ffmpeg, which is a very nifty program to process and convert video and audio streams. I searched all over the net but noone gave me a decent idea of how to extract all the frames, so I came up with a dodgy command that goes something like this in bash...
...where itsoffset is the starting point in seconds into the video (negative offset is actually forward into the video, ie: -4 is 00:00:04 into the video). So, running the command over and over making the offset progressively larger will spit out a whole group of frames into the directory where you run it. Excuse me while I go off and learn some basic bash scripting so I can automate this.
I know noone is interested in this but me, but whatever...

for me - the best soft! :-)
1. Add video files
2. Press F4 - select image output format, for example JPEG
3. Click on Grabber icon (left toolbar)
4. Select "Grab frames at reqular time interval"
5. Set time interval = 1 frm.
and click OK and run via press F5. All

But I for it use VideoCharge Studio.
It is tools no free, but have lot of function useful for me, for example:
1. You can work with any video files, and it is impotant :-)
2. You can work with some files (batch mode) and via command line
3. You can resize, crop, watermark, correct colors for created images.
4. You can select best frame from footage.
5. You can use Wizard for start!
