Convert multiple MOV files to multiple images

You want to convert your .MOV files likely taken with your iPhone when the motion option was on, to still images. You scouted the web and you can't find a simple command on the thousands of ffmpeg options to do that.

You are not crazy, they don't have it! Not in a human feasible way. So here it is:
for i in *.mov; do ffmpeg -i "$i" -frames:v 1 png/"${i%.*}.png"; done
