  movie file (see above), you have several options for
  writing the still frames to an image file.

  There is an image library, libimage.a, which supports
  reading and writing the Silicon Graphics RGB file format.
  Sample programs for using this library appear in the
  4Dgifts subsystem.

  example programs.  They contain a program called
  editmovie.c which writes still frames to image files, using
