Convert 3gp Short Movies To Still Pictures

Digital videos that are compressed to stream on 3GP network mobile phones are distributed as 3GP files. While 3GP files are commonly converted into alternate digital video formats, it is also possible to convert the media into a sequence of still pictures. Each frame of a 3GP file can be encoded into an image format like JPG, PNG, BMP, GIF and so forth. SUPER and iWisoft Free Video Converter are two free applications that users can download and install to carry out this task. Meanwhile, Media Convert is an online service that users can visit to perform this file conversion over the Internet.

Instructions

1. Run SUPER (Simplified Universal Player Encoder and Renderer). Open the “Select the Output Container” pull-down menu and select “Sequence of Images.” Open the “Select the Output Video Codec” pull-down menu and select the desired output image format. Choose from JPG, PNG, PPM/PNM or PGM.

2. Drag the 3GP input file into the “DROP A VALID MULTIMEDIA FILE HERE” section. The video will be imported into the application.

3. Click the “Encode (Active Files)” button to encode the media. The program will ring when the image output files have been successfully generated. The still pictures will be stored in the same location as the 3GP input file.
