Fear me. I have PowerDVD. I can now do screencaps.

To be honest, it was already on my pc when I bought it over 2 years ago. The first dvd I tried was - here's a surprise - FOTR. The blue warning message came up, followed by the logo - then nothing. Couldn't find out what the problem was so abandoned it. Until a few weeks ago I decided to try again but this time I tried one of the discs from the Appendices and it worked! But this is the weird thing - it will play all the discs from the appendices, it will also play a couple of non-LOTR films I've tried, but it will NOT play any of the actual LOTR films. Does anyone understand this?

Anyway, I've been capping like a mad thing. These are mainly from the FOTR discs, mostly Fro, some Lij. Oh, and there's one of Sean and, er ... one of a cake. Some are a bit on the fuzzy side - please bear with me, I'm a capping novice. Also, Photobucket say that any images over 250k will be resized which could result in bad distortion. Well, these were massive but they don't look distorted to me - do they? Although they may be a bit on the blurry side compared to the originals. And ... there are rather a lot:) Right, enough with the technical stuff ...

LET THE CAPPAGE COMMENCE!!Collapse )

Hi Pauline,

It's Blossom here from KD, popping in to gaze at your beautiful screencaps. WOW! Great choice of pictures. He IS beautiful!

I wanted to say that the LOTR films all play perfectly well on my computer's PowerDVD. I must have made thousands of caps over the past couple of years, covering all three films - theatrical and EE's - and they have all worked OK.

I really cannot understand why only the appendices will play on yours. If I were you I would keep trying - I don't think there's any reason why they shouldn't play. Perhaps it's something to do with the programme settings?

Good luck, and thanks for sharing the caps.

Hope to hear from you sometime.

Hi Blossom - thanks for letting me know about your PowerDVD - it is very strange that I can't play the films. Don't know if you read the replies to my post, but there was one other, Green Ghost, who said she couldn't play the films either & she thought they may be coded in some way - but obviously if you can play them that can't be the case. I think I might try the PowerDVD help facility. I will be writing to you very soon, btw:) Glad you liked the caps!

You are a gem and a generous one to make and share these! Wow! So many caps that had just flown by me - yup, definitely time to see film and all the extras again. They look so very happy - and is that lad beautiful or what.

Thank you!

Glad you enjoyed the screencaps - and yes, the lad is extremely beautiful!! Btw, I was wondering why your name rang a bell with me & I notice from your LJ that you say you do LOTR art - was it you who did that beautiful pic of Frodo in blue? If it was, I'm sure you'll know which one I mean - if not, sorry for mixing you up with someone else:)

Hmm. I *did* do a photomanip of Frodo in blue, looking pensive. (see icon) And Shoesparks made a blue manip of one of my drawings, F/S, loving... But Annwyn just posted a gorgeous drawing of Frodo sailing, blue tinted. (Hobbitart lj and her own) So I don't know if it's one of my blue ones or not!

Were you on KD?

Thank you! It was one of my first forays into manips - discovered the program, and who better to play with??? LotR and the lads have inspired such creativity in so many - for me it has been the writing and starting this summer, drawing, as well.

KD!!! I was at Council of Elrond, then KD - mostly lurked at Faculty (fascinating) and some at Harem. Lovely people and wonderful discussions.

Hail fellow KD'er well met!
