Is there a program i can download or sofware out there that will let me capture certain scenes from a DVD movie. Im doing a school project and we need 4 scenes from a movie(short clips) and it would be very convienent if i was able to do it this way... and put them onto a CD or DVD. Or even a flash drive if possible.

According to another website, you don't need any additional software. Just: pause the video you are playing on the screen and hit Alt-Printscreen. You can then open your favorite paint program and paste this screen capture into there and edit out the stuff you do not want to show.

And additional tip: If you are using Windows Media Player, make sure you disable overlays By going to:(Tools -> Options -> Performance -> Advanced -> Uncheck "Use Overlays"). If you don't do this, the Print Screen method will not work.

I have not tested this scenario, so I cannot vouch for the information's accuracy.

Edit: I misread your capture parameters. Also I think short scene captures may violate copyright laws. I would have your school verifiy the legality of such actions.
