Video output advice.
« on: 2017-06-27 21:04:42 »
We still running on 1280x960 for Video`s or are we upto 1080p yet.
I`ve not done any video editing for FFVII for about 7 years.

1280 is as good as it gets. There is literally no point in going higher, since the originals are nowhere near that resolution.  It's all just an upscale.

I`m not using the orignals,
Was hoping I could get my edits upto 1080p but not the end of the world.

What Codecs should I use.

You are using the originals.  You're either using the Toshiba files (640 * 448) or the PSX ones (320 * 224).  Both of which are no better at 1080 and will actually likely look worse.  It's an upscale.  Unless you are using FMVs that aren't remotely connected with the original game?

Thats right ye.
I`m not using the original videos.

I`m creating new ones, I used the original Truemotion codec to do it last time, I assume things have moved on since then?

Steam uses vp-8... but probably allows many more.  1998 version with Aali's driver does. It will support any normal res.  I personally would use 1280 * 896  - x264.
