Hi all.

I have a requirement to collect a bitmap image directly from a given AVI file.
Does anyone know of any decent .Net only libraries that by any chance can achieve this?

I would like to avoid any COM interops if possible but if you have had experience using any in a .Net environment which worked well I am open to suggestion.

I have given DirectShow a go and while it works, it seems pretty cumbersome to for what I am trying to achieve.
