    I tried searching this topic but did not find any relevant threads. Please excuseme if this has been covered.

    When I use the Capture Frame function in PowerDVD (in this case, version 4.0), when I paste 16x9 content into MS Paint for instance, I get a 720x480 picture, which winds up stretching the image vertically. If I try to stretch back the way it should be the picture distorts. I'm sure this is a simple fix, but how do you get the screen shots to paste in the proper aspect ratio?

    I noticed this too so if there is a fix I would like to know. I used paintshop pro to resize back to the correct a.r.

    I should have played around with it some more before posting. if you right-click on the Capture Frame button, you get some options. If you select Current Video Window Size it comes out OK. It defaults to Original Video Source Size.
