Converting a PicHandle to format for use with imageData

I've had a request to add support to my QT External for extracting an 
image from a QuickTime movie (poster movie or the frame at a certain 
point in time) and assigning it to an image in Revolution.  Getting an 
image from a QT movie is pretty straightforward but the QT API returns 
a PicHandle.  I have absolutely no idea how to get this into a format 
that Revolution could use for imageData and was wondering if anyone on 
the list had any experience with this.
