ASCII Projektor presents films by drawing them with characters.

It accepts films from the computer's camera as well as from QuickTime files. You can set up which characters and fonts are used to present the film. To spice things up a little, you draw the converted version of the film on top of a distorted version of the original film.

This is cool, and it would be useful if you could actually USE it for something:

to create ASCII art.

It ought to be possible to pause the movie, e.g. by a mouse-click, and then copy the text string.
Or even open a non-movie (image file) and see/copy it as ASCII.
