There's a way to dissect the JO trailer frame by frame by using the RAD Video Tools.
You can choose to convert the vid into almost any type of image file you'd care to use, although going fo jpg is probably the smartest idea if you care about keeping some harddrive space left for other and more useful purposes. ;)

Go here (http://www.radgametools.com/bnkdown.htm), download the Tools (only 1.2MB) and then use the "convert a file" option, making sure you have chosen the appropriate output file type and destination folder.

Of course, due to the fact that the trailer is so low-res, you shouldn't expect any miracles from the image quality - double the size of the picture and it will get very blurry.
Still better than nothing, no?

I do it by using the copy and paste. I use a photo editor to work with it. I've already done this for Ep. II frames.

I use 'em as desktops, or use said photo editing program to make great desktops out of a number of shots. :)

In the Quicktime player (after you have downloaded it) there is an "COPY" button...it will copy the frame and you will be able to use it in a Picture editor such as PSP7 or Adobe Photoshop.

For people who want to change the video from Quicktime .MOV format into something else, like MPEG....

that vcdhelp page is amazing; I never knew you could put basically anytype of video file on your computer onto a cd watchable in your stand alone dvd player!

Simple copy and paste into photoshop:
