I am hoping this is the right area to post this. I have 1080p trail camera footage of someone stealing equipment. The truck plates are a little too far away in the video to clearly make out the numbers.
I was just taking screenshots of the video using print screen, or using the snippet tool to get them into GIMP. I think the quality got degraded from doing that. I am trying to magnify the video frames but I don't think this method will work.
I originally used GIMP and a open source application called smartDeblur to see if I could get it. I was using GIMP to increase the scale without losing quality but it was too distorted the bigger it got to make anything out.
Does GIMP have any sort of video to image capture I can use? Is doing the snippet or screen shot of a video indeed losing image quality from what was originally on the frame?
