Firstly, I apologise for digging up a thread that has been inactive for quite some time.

May I ask if these FMVs will still be re-uploaded in 1280x960 like you claimed? Some of the FMVs here looks decent and I'm quite interested to have them ingame. I had already downloaded a few (despite wanting all, alas FileFront had had it's problem too), tested them but I thought the quality could be of much better. So I was curious about the status.

Also, is it so that the 'Opening Credits' and 'Prelude' both have the credit words? It would look weird IMO, because of the 2 occurence and repeatency. Alas if this thread is no longer under developement I shall once again apologise.

I don't remember what came of it, but.... I know Grimmy released a different prelude and was looking in to replacing the scrolling text with pictures or something else.  I think it has its own thread, but you'd have to do some searching.

As for higher def.. I actually just asked him last night but he is currently preoccupied with other projects  :|   

Of course you could always make them yourself :-)   The problem is Aali's driver doesn't currently support H264, so larger resolutions mean much larger file size for now.

My bad, I just realise the 'Prelude' in this thread no longer had the credit words. It's replaced with pictures already xD and no need to search for a new thread I guess.

Warning: this topic has not been posted in for at least 60 days.
Unless you're sure you want to reply, please consider starting a new topic.

Thank you warning, but yes, I would still like to reply.

So apparently the driver now supports h.264 and aac.  I still have Clover's video (480p  :( ).  Now, Ill probably download Advent Children Complete on Blu Ray, because I don't have a Blu Ray player on my PC, and convert the Sephiroth in flames scene... along with a few others maybe.

My question now is... What resolution do we want to put these videos at?  I was going to say 1280x720.   Or is this too small?

I'll take that as a vote for 720

if you notice the videos them self are not actually in full screen. they are partly cropped. I'm not sure how many pixals will need be removed though :/

So, if scenes are being ripped from AC, what do we do about the aspect ratio?

AC is 16:9 and FF7 is 4:3 (well, not exactly). The videos will either be squashed and stretched or they will be letterboxed (and since FF7 is pillarboxed on widescreen monitors, does that mean the videos will be windowboxed?)

Everything about this game is being updated.  Graphics, models, backgrounds, music.. everything.  If a remake were to be done by SE today the system requirements would be decently high. And since 16 x 9 is now the most common screen size for new monitors and TVs, it seems only fitting that these videos be made 16x9 where possible.
Aali has a lot of control over the game with his driver, and I'm fairly sure he mentioned widescreen being possible (at least in battle... maybe the field too if we can find a way to move away from flat backgrounds)

Is everyone agreed on 1280x768?

Render widescreen backgrounds if we remake them. well WHEN, though that may be hard to do..

the best thing to do for this is:

1. emulate the PSX version at hi res and capture all the needed video.

2. rip the FMV from psx version

why psx version u ask?  b/c unllike the PC version, all the psx version are not pre-encoded and can be scaled at hi res in emulator.

how do u capture those scene u want? easy, just use savegames and editor to get to them

how do u replace those FMV for the pc version?  go inside ur cd, u will see that all the FMV are placed nicely as AVI format inside the FMV folder

Maybe i'm wrong.. But i'm pretty sure PSX videos don't scale in an emulator. at least not in legend of legaia or Legend of Dragoon

Legend of Dragoon is pre-encoded.. hence it is pixelated.

you could try FF7 on emulator and see for urself  :-D WAY NICER than the PC FMV  :wink:

A bit bored of it right now, so just throwing up what I have so far.
Won't ever be HD unfortunately.

sorry for necro but I think this thread deserves some attention.

I was wondering if someone has made a newer version of the FMVs. A HD quality one or similiar?

these are absolutely awesome, however, when i run them, i seem to be having ever such slight issues with the sound (such as the opening video in a new game with aeris, in which i can here a very light clicking behind the music and the music clips every so often)

is this to be expected?
