Archiving a cameraman/documentary filmmaker's life's work

How do folks create footage logs for posterity? In case they ever want to dive back into the footage and find a shot?

I used to have a Filemaker pro-based system that captured an image as well as TC and searchable key-words. But the old logs can't even be opened in the current version of FP. I have old project files with key-words and logs from older versions of premiere, Media 100, FCP7, Avid, etc. I can't even open them now to port them to a newer edit program.

Finding a phrase from an old interview is actually easier than finding a shot if you have transcripts - the search function can find a phrase from any text document.

Suggestions? Is there a program that can grab some frames - perhaps 10 per 60 minute reel - that would create a visual archive I could flip through? Perhaps something that could also generate a print copy? Perhaps allow me to post images to the web and create a searchable database there? Photo management software that also might create video thumbnails?

Thanks.

Dan,

Have you looked at CatDV.
