I am finalizing a custom DVD this afternoon (created using iMovie and iDVD) and needed to capture still images of DVD scenes for the cover. Unfortunately, Mac OS X disables default screen capture functionality when any type of DVD is playing (commercial or homemade.) Thankfully, the free software program DVD Capture enables this functionality.

Thanks to the amazing Mac guru Devin Henley for this tip!
