Version history / Release notes / Changelog

Image Grabber 2.2.0 unofficial

Image Grabber II.NET was written by Serkan ERGUN. It's a tool for saving screenshots from video files. No source code was provided, but since it was written in C# it was easy to decompile. Here are some of the improvements I've made:

New options in batch mode, and each pass runs in a new process to avoid freezes with some decoders, and to detect and skip frozen passes.
Saves options to user's Application Data folder for Vista compatibility without administrative privileges.
Thumbnail list supports drag/drop reordering, allows use of scroll wheel, maintains proper aspect ratio, works better with high DPI, and numerous quirks were fixed.
Various other small improvements to the GUI (control alignment/spacing, all forms open centered, added some tooltips, improved wording, etc.).
Fixed many leaks due to undisposed Bitmap/Graphics objects.
Updated MediaInfo library to version 0.7.9 (solved crashing in Vista, added support for more formats e.g. FLV).
Updated DirectShow.NET library to version 2.0.
x64 compile available.

I don't know why but recently Image Grabber II ( latest version updated ) gives me problem with hardsubbed videos. My DSHOW filters are LAVFilters, but it seems they're not the problem.

I found new version was modify by Jart.

That's site had x86 and x64 version.

Nov 30, 2012 Version: 2.2 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease: 8/10 Functionality: 8/10 Value: 8/10 Overall: 8/10

easy software and helpful to sort my movies, but the batch function only 30catch can't be modified, hope there is new version for it, if this version can be used for X7 will be great

May 10, 2011 Version: NET version OS: WinXP Ease: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value: 5/10 Overall: 8/10

Lite, handy prog. that does the job, as stated it sadly does not work under Vista, or Windows 7 for that matter. No amount of mauling around with compatibility settings got it to work for me.

Older versions run fine on later versions of Windows and for auto. creating caps it did the job. Although I liked the ability to scan a video frame by frame for precise, manual screencaps; a function not available in the earlier versions.

I've moved onto SceneGrabber as of now, which has the 'frame by frame' function, the basic options and a bit more.

Sep 16, 2010 Version: .Net OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease: 10/10 Functionality: 8/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 9/10

Image Grabber II has got to be the best contact sheet creator out there. I don't really know what the .NET version improves upon other than a few more variables in the legend. Unfortunately, unlike the non-.NET II version, Image Grabber II.NET cannot string together multiple movie files into one image like Image Grabber II. For example, if you have movie.parta.avi and movie.partb.avi Image Grabber II will let grab shots from the first file and then load the second file and append shots to it as well. Image Grabber II.NET lost that functionality which is the most important aspect to me so I'm sticking with good old Image Grabber II (non .NET version)!
