    Hi to all ,

    I try using GetMoviePosterPict but don't work with some kind of movie files.

    I read some documents and i get the conclusion to use GWorld to get
    the frame image.

    These is what i think :

    SetMovieGWorld(Movie , GWorldPtr , NULL);


    PixMapHandle pixmap = GetGWorldPixMap(GWorldPtr);

    The problem is that i tried to code these a lot of diferents forms and
    any works.

    Anyone can help me?

    Couldn't you setup an area rectangle for the width and height of the movie within the controller and have it save an image from that?

    E.g. - Get Movie Width and Height
    Get Player location
    Set boundaries
    Take a picture of whats in the location of the boundaries
