Is there any way or a program that will let you copy clips of a movie that is playing on your computer? If so, what or how? Thanks in advance for your help.

Yes there is and that program is called "SNAG IT". It's the world's best screen capture program and it is available here:

http://www.download....cdlpid=10717260

Overview:

SnagIt is the screen capture and editing software that lets you add stunning effects and helpful instructions--to anything you see on your PC screen. Immediately improve communication by capturing & illustrating your points. Get professional results without the hassle of a hard-to-use editor. Enhance images with all the powerful editing options you can imagine.

Review:

Capturing screenshots may not be glamorous, but at least SnagIt makes it simple. SnagIt lets you capture any part of your screen, from a partial image to the entire contents of a scrolling window. You can grab images of Web sites and software applications or pictures from scanners and digital cameras. You even can capture video and record screen action in AVI format.

Editing tools let you manipulate and enhance captures using effects (such as Brightness, Hue, and Saturation), filters, and borders. You can add arrows, substitute colors in the captured image, or create dark or light backgrounds with a single click. Version 8 adds several interactive features, such as saving Web pages with HTML links, adding hot spots and rollover states to objects and areas, and exporting files in SWF and PDF formats.

This program outdoes itself in features, so figuring out the menu structure may take a while, but the GUI additions in version 8 are a welcome addition. Unfortunately, the latest update is just as slow to start as the last version. Even with its package of powerful options, we found SnagIt flexible and easy to use. Balloon tips, wizards, and an online video tutorial make it simple for beginners, and its sophisticated capabilities will satisfy advanced users.
