Posted:stills from the video? just set it to full screen while your playing it then press the print screen button when you want a still then go into paint brush or paint shop pro or what ever you want and do paste repeat till you've got enough biggrin



and mike the key to doing wirewool is keeping the wool moveing constantaly and fast the more flowing and the faster the better i look forward to seeing you doing wire wool staff also if your going to start trying wire wool this thred is very handy
