I have an ATI TV WONDER VE Capture Card. The software that came with it has no still image capturing software. How can I capture still images via the capture card. I have the video going in via RCA and when I run VideoDub (SourceForge Project) to capture video it works perfectly. All I need is how to capture just one frame either using that program or another free program or if you know of a way using the software that comes with this model of capture card.

Capturing a still image is not a function of the card, but of the software.   Since you want to do this for free, you simply need to look at the controls for what you have -- e.g. VideoDub -- and see if there's a "snapshot" button (which will grab one frame);  or, alternatively, just capture in video mode, and then use a video editor to save the single frame that you want.   Not sure what software ATI bundled with that specific card;  but with the All-in-Wonder series the player application has a "still capture" button on the control panel => it looks like a camera.   You just click it to capture one frame of the video that's playing.

"Capturing a still image is not a function of the card, but of the software." -- I agree 100%,  the software that came with the card should have some sort of image capture feature (probably denoted by a camera as garycase said).  If it does not, here are some free alternatives that do:

ChrisTV: http://www.softpedia.com/get/Multimedia/Video/Other-VIDEO-Tools/ChrisTV-Lite.shtml

iuVCR: http://www.iulabs.com/iuvcr/download.shtml

(QuickTV also supports this but I'm not sure if it is free)

Good luck!

Download the Multimedia Center software from ATI.  https://support.ati.com/ics/support/default.asp?deptID=894&task=knowledge&folderID=293  Unless they've changed it recently, you'll find the still capture option in there.
