Converting a video file to lots of images

Still for that grad school work on stereo video, I want to convert the videos I made to a bunch of bitmap images.

With linux and ffmpeg it is easy. It is just type:
ffmpeg -i video.dv image%03d.bmp

There are more ffmpeg cheats at:

Here is a couple of links very useful:

Specifically, the command line I was looking for is:

ffmpeg -i esquerda.dv -f image2 foo_%02d.bmp
