Some playback softwares like powerdvd allows to take a snapshot. I never tried because I usually use powerdvd to watch may DVD, but I think that also the free VLC player should allow to take snapshots

Certainly PowerDVD does snapshot a frame & does a decent job of it.

I use PowerDVD all the time for this, but you can also just hit: <pause>, then <alt-print-screen> and get similar results. PowerDVD works good because it captures the actual frame.
