Dr Who - thing in progress

Using comics (pdf or cbr files) in a vid (Final Cut Express)


I've got a vid in which I would like to include some images from comics (as well as footage from avi and mp4 files). I have said comics in pdf and cbr formats.

So, I was wondering if there was a way to get and image from a pdf file into a format usable in Final Cut? I sort of assume that it would be necessary to turn it into a jpg or other such image file first.

Is there a program that converts a pdf (or part of one) to jpg? Has anyone tried to intergrate comics into a vid before? And if so how?

Any ideas would be gratefully received. Thanks!
