The following code works for me in LC6.7.11

    set the currentTime of player "mediaPlayer" to tFrameTime
    -- export it and set the cell frame to it
    put the rect of player "mediaPlayer" into tRect
    -- adjust rect if desired
    export snapshot from rect tRect of player "mediaPlayer" to tImage as PNG
    put tImage into img "filmStripImage"
