Frame Extraction to Picture files

I've heard of software that will extract a piece of video into individual frames in non-lossy picture formats (PCX?, BMP?, TIFF?). From there you can modify the individual pictures (usually a batch process across all pictures), and then you can reassemble them back into a video file.

For example, if I have a ten second video clip shot at 30fps, then the program would produce 30*10=300 individual tiff picture files - one for each frame.

Anyone know of software that can do this?

Thanks for any help you can give!

Answering my own question...

To answer my own question...

Virtualdub can do this. In the file menu there is an option to extract a series of images. You can then modify the images, and then tell virtualdub to open a video file and point it to the first image, and virtualdub will reassemble the video. Neat!

hey, i tried this today, and the extracted frames look nothing like the original video. the quality is much worse and the colors are off... what settings did you use when you did this? and how did your stills come out?
