I have a video card that is connected to my PC and I would like to capture the video in real time and be able to record still images at will. Could you recommend a particular software for this task?

P.S: I tried the software VirtualDub for capturing the video yet could not realize if it offers capturing still images.

For end-user software, you may want to check out DaVinci Resolve or Lightworks.

For developing an application, I would recommend using the LEADTOOLS Multimedia SDK. This library contains programmatic interfaces for C, C++, COM, and .NET applications. Developers can use the CaptureCtrl for capturing from local hardware to file and use the GetStillImage() method or LEAD Video Callback filter for getting stills.
