A plug-in that grabs pictures from a video-input source and embeds them into the container field of database-application FileMaker Pro 5.5 has been released.

Developer Troi Automatisering’s Troi Grabber Plug-in 1.5 is compatible with Mac OS 9.1 and OS X. It previews image-streams from video-input sources, and crops pictures to grab only the desired part of the video image – all from within FileMaker.

Other features include rotating pictures before grabbing; recording a movie from a video-input source for a specified number of seconds; and obtaining a recorded movie’s timecodes.

A fully functional version of Troi Grabber Plug-in 1.5 is available for download. It can be ordered online , costing $79 per user. No UK pricing is available.
