SnapFlow is an innovative Mac OS X Leopard application to select great shots from any video files (HD, SD, Quicktime, MPEG, AVCHD), compare similar shots, enhance images, and deinterlace in super high quality.

SnapFlow lets you use your videos as a source of high quality images. With the rise of HD camcorders, you might find yourself using an HD camcorder more often than you use your digital camera. Nevertheless, they are countless situations where a still image is more appropriate than a video. Extracting great shots from this footage is therefore a great way to share

Aquafadas does create good software but unfortunately always overpriced

Grabbing stills from video clips is something I do a lot of every now and then, and will do much more as I upgrade to an HD camera. And judging from the screencasts at the developer site, this app's got several features that could come in handy if you're taking a lot of stills from video. The comparison and tagging/naming screens are very nice looking. But $130?!?! This is delusional.

I'm already taking multiple stills extremely efficiently with ScreenCapper for less than a tenth that cost. I also have DV Kitchen which has a slick stills-grabbing function with some fancy bells like deinterlacing, and it "throws in" a suberb video compression app, all for under $80. I actually prefer ScreenCapper since it's got the ergonomics of taking multiple stills completely down, with mouse-wheel clip scanning and keystrokes for grabbing, and it's very easy to batch deinterlace and fix the aspect-ratio of a folder full of grabs in Photoshop. And InstantShot + QuickTime comes close for sheer efficiency for free.

SnapFlow apparently takes its inspiration (and name) from the excellent ScreenFlow, which broke ground by building an editor into a video recorder; SnapFlow builds the same into a stills-grabber. If I did this all the time, I can see that having a limited but basic editor and organizer built into the grabber would be useful, but again, it's hardly worth $130 for the privilege.

All of these points were obvious before I even launched the trail version. Now that I have, I can only add that it froze, then crashed, once, and then brought my entire system down within 20 minutes of firing it up (MacPro, 6G Ram, 10.5.6). Not encouraging…

Will watch, and wait for a Promo discount, then MAYBE…

SnapFlow is an innovative Mac OS X Leopard application to select great shots from any video files (HD, SD, Quicktime, MPEG, AVCHD), compare similar shots, enhance images, and deinterlace in super high quality.

SnapFlow lets you use your videos as a source of high quality images. With the rise of HD camcorders, you might find yourself using an HD camcorder more often than you use your digital camera. Nevertheless, they are countless situations where a still image is more appropriate than a video. Extracting great shots from this footage is therefore a great way to share these moments you recorded.

With its easy-to-use interface, the user of SnapFlow can:
  • select the best shots and collect them in albums including smart albums,
  • apply pre-defined image enhancing workflows (image filters),
  • generate documents such as DVD covers, posters
  • export the best shots in bulk, in any image format, with optional metadata,
  • keep track of the selected shots and their associated videos using projects.


SnapFlow is the result of a collaboration with photojournalists as well as video professionnals who manipulate digital stills extracted from raw HD footage on a regular basis. SnapFlow both simplifies the selection process and bulk export, while organizing all the media in a very flexible Project.
