Saitek Puts Up Eclipse III
Saitek recently put up the product page for the third generation incarnation of their popular Eclipse gaming keyboard line. Losing the characteristic Eclipse shape and standard form factor, it bears a striking resemblance to the Cyborg keyboard in a cleaner, no frills form.
* Adjustable, multi color backlighting highlights key controls
* Touch-sensitive control panel changes settings quickly and easily
* Two stage height adjustment and removable wrist rest increase comfort
* Pass through headphone and microphone audio ports for simple connectivity
* Time-saving Windows and Internet shortcut keys
* USB plug and play
* Color and keyboard settings remain even after system reboot
* Laser-etched, soft touch, durable keys
Like the new direction the Eclipse has taken? Or has it abandoned what made the Eclipse keyboards great?

So, I want to make a gif-avatar of a small 5-10 second part of a movie coded in .mkv, and I've searched around a bit, but can't seem to find a proper tutorial for this.

So then I was wondering if anyone here have the knowledge on how to get this done, preferably without installing tons of different software and codec-packs, but if I have to to get the job done, so be it.

For those who wonders what scene from what movie, it's the scene where the squirrel gets hit in the head with a nut in Tinkerbell. I laughed myself silly when I saw it! :D

.mkv is an odd format. You'd be better off editing and re-encoding the certain part of the movie into a .wmv or .avi using a decent video editor such as Sony Vegas, and then making a .gif through Photoshop.

get mkv2vob and convert to an easier format to work with, then open in a video editor of your choice if u have one, pull out the frames you want and make a new file (much easier this way)
then import the frames as layers in photoshop and make your gif.
wala lol
(if you have a copy of after effects you could probably do it ALL in that but meh)

Get a player that`ll allow u to progress in frames, like virtualdubmod, and snap the frames u want.

Thanks for the tips, guys, but I'm still having trouble. VirtualDubMod is just lame, won't let me load any files, not even after using mkv2vob to convert them to avi or vob. Any other suggestions?
