Question Kino - how to export still frames in a common image format

I am newbie cartoonist that trying to study the “frame by frame” action of a small clip. I herd that Kino can easily export to a variety of other video formats, including exporting still frames in most common image formats (such as .gif, .jpeg, ect). I went to file>publish_still I get a successful still frame export of a jpeg image. Great! However I would like to publish a series of these still frames in a row. I herd that the file>saving_still_frame or file>publish_smil will give me the series of still frames I am looking for; however when ever I use any of those two features I get this output window with this message:

“The publishing script requires the following missing utilities: curl”

is there a cure? Or another video editor that can bring me the result I desire?

Install the curl package. The curl program downloads files given the url as an argument.

You can also use ffmpeg or mencoder to export images for each frame in a clip.

This will extract one video frame per second from the video and will output them in files named foo-001.jpeg, foo-002.jpeg, etc. Images will be rescaled to fit the new WxH values.

The syntax "foo-%03d.jpeg" specifies to use a decimal number composed of three digits padded with zeroes to express the sequence number. It is the same syntax supported by the C printf
function, but only formats accepting a normal integer are suitable.

If you want to extract just a limited number of frames, you can use the above command in combination with the -vframes or -t option, or in combination with -ss to start extracting from a
certain point in time.
