Usually what i do is watch a movie on my computer, then when i see a cool scene i press print screen and save the picture. It's really useful when finding ideas and what not.

For your ref you could watch the harry potter movie chess scene and take pictures.

or google. :cool:

im pretty sure it does show all the pieces, considering it is one of the bigger scenes of the movie.

Youtube is very useful when in need for reference. You can find ways to rip youtube videos.

You don't even need to "rip" YouTube really. Just save the .flv file.

For Firefox:

DownloadHelper Add-On (http://www.downloadhelper.net/)

This one can automatically convert the file too, if you prefer, to another more friendly format.

No need for plugins, just add 'pwn' after www. and before youtube.

Thanks so much guys :). I was having a hard time looking for a dvd of this around stores here. Never really thought youtube would have the scene :D. Now then time to worry about how I'm going to achieve this. Wish me luck!
