There's nothing more to say, simple I recommend you this tool!
Don't forget to buy an activate code, it's cheap, and worth to appreciate author for his fantastic work on developping VTM :) After unlocking, other functionality will be available...

* Version 3.0.0.0 and onward replace a frame of the contact sheet with the program's logo. A fact that is conveniently omitted from the changelog.
* I can't drag and drop files in the latest version, while this wasn't a problem before.
* All versions fail on random files (MP4, WMV, there seems to be no rhyme or reason), although the changelog says this is fixed.
* So I'm going to stick with version 2.1.0.6, because it works just as badly but at least it doesn't deface my contact sheets. Development of Image Grabber II.NET has ceased ages ago, and Media Player Classic doesn't offer any similar customization options or batch processing. So I'm afraid Video Thumbnails Maker is the best a 64-bit Windows user can do at the moment.

Great software. I have a large collection of WMV/Xvid videos that I would like to make thumbnails in JPG format for indexing purpose. This little program saves me a lot of time to make thumbnails for my collection in batch mode -- I just point to my video folder (VTM will scan for sub-folder for all compatible video formats), and hit start. Relax and my thumbnails will be ready when VTM is done.

MPC has similar feature, but there is no batch mode available. I really love this program, great time saver!

Absolutely HATE the Annoying Random Logo Shot in the new version 3.... I personally would never use it since it makes the whole contact sheet looks like Crap!!

Also it does not work on about 30% of the files I rendered (while ImageGrabber II could process it w/o any problem) .... From my experience... ImageGrabber II is STILL the most reliable even though the interface is long overdue for an update.....

Video Thumbnail Maker... What else?
OK, I'm not Georges Clooney, but, believe me, VTM is quite better than any Nespressso coffee...
-More simple than the Nespresso coffee maker, but really does a wonderful job.
-Pics and thumbnails are high quality
-Contact sheets are customisable much more than with any other soft
-The job is done sooooooooooooooooooooo quickly!
-Artur is sooooooooooooooooooooooooo comprehensive (lol)
-And, seriously... do you really think taht you could have better for just 10 bucks???
Thx again for this marvellous tool...
Pierre.

This is by far the most versitle and value for money video thumb maker out there. The author is quick to my after sales support too. Highly recommended you guys to activate with just $10 as you get more functions than the default.

Two thumbs up. :)

Following up on ojjuror, the new "Brilliant"(?) edition contains the not-so-brilliant idea of always substituting one panel with the company logo.

Back to 2.106 for me!

I've been using this program through its different versions. just grabbed the latest version. for some strange reason, when i create thumbnails, the latest version incorporates the company logo in place of one specific thumbnail. FYI. I find this completely annoying and suggest going back to the previous decent-working version.

Excellent program, the best image grabber from video format that I could find, works extremely fast once you've paid for an upgrade, really pleased with it, I've had a lot of problems screen capping .mp4's in the past, but this program works like a dream, highly recommend it! :)

A worthy replacement for Image Grabber II, with a good range of options and flexibility, a clean interface, and a nice output. It handles a good range of video formats as well (more than IG II). There are extra customisations if you choose to donate, although I'm not sure a different coloured progress bar is a big incentive.

One thing to note if you are coming from Image Grabber II - Video Thumbnail Maker does not allow you to chose specific frames or see the timeline. Everything is based on your presets. Often this is fine, but sometimes you want to use specific images from a scene, in which case you should keep Image Grabber II installed as well.

If you need a quick, simple, video thumbnail generator, this is a great option.

This is a total winner, and I'm a total a$$ when it comes to
b*tching and moaning about this little feature which would save
me a mouse click, or an extra window which should disappear without
an ok... and I swear... I'M trying to find something wrong with this
program and I CAN'T!

Stay tuned, cuz I'm going to keep on trying to find s o m e t h i n g wrong...
...but I'm pretty sure I'll fail.

A home-run, and an adopted program within 3 mins of opening and installing it.

Kudos to that young man who did it right.
