    Shit I had this same thing happen.... I'm trying to remember how i fixed it. Try it with the video full screen and then try it with it 200% or whatever. I think that might have been it. It pissed me off though.

    very generally and from what i can remember...here is the explaination:

    there is this conceptual thing called a video overlay provided by your video card. for performance reasons, computers draw things like digital video to the video overlay. when you take a screen shot, the pixels are read from the normal video buffer and not the video overlay buffer.

    i forget the actual names of all the devices and buffers, but thats basically what happens.

    Tried it with all sized but could not get it to work

    Clockworks so you mean its impossible to do it? Atleast without different software.

    I think you need to save the video file to disk, then open it with a video editing program if you want a still cap from it.
