How to make "caps" from DVD's?

    I certainly know how to make vidcaps from videotapes because I've done so in
    the past (I have a vidcapping device that I bought several years ago), but I
    have to admit that I know nothing about how caps are made from DVD's. Sorry if
    this is a bad question here, what is required to make caps from DVD's? I know
    at least that one obviously needs a computer, a DVD drive or player, & the
    actual DVD's themselves (I have a DVD-ROM drive on my main PC & a very small
    collection of DVD's), but do I need to buy or get any other hardware? And what
    about software? If I actually need to get any new hardware, then surely the
    software that runs it will come with it, but if not, then what software do I
    need to get? And can it be downloaded on the 'Net for free? Any advice will
    be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    many DVD player programs for computers have a screen capture utility. This
    makes it very simple. PowerDVD for example has a simple camera icon on it's
    control panel. While the movie is playing, or paused, simply click that
    icon, and you capture the playback image. It's quite simple.
