No, the remix patch intended to replace content. This is simply much higher quality versions of the videos already in FF7.

If all of them like Jenova rus that i saw then it's "MUST HAVE" for collection with no doubt
...so anybody know how to make "Perfect Resize"(new "Genue Fractals") work with Photoimpact? (I don't have Photoshop...standalone "perfect resize" do not support batch conversion)...also "PhotoZoom Pro" is god for resizing but I wanna try all of them

I've realised that my sound is out of sync with the FMVs. I noticed this during the bike.avi that all the sounds were delayed (example when he goes through the glass and skids). However when I watch the avi normally with WMP the sound is perfect and accurate.

Any suggestions would be great. Thanks

Im using aali 7.9 because when I use 7.10b the movies are very dark looking. How do I resolve that with the newest aali driver?


UPDATE: I fixed it using aali latest driver 7.10b. I went into the shaders folder and into the yuv.frag file and erased the line

"if(!full_range) y = (y - (1.0 / 255.0) * 16.0) * (255.0 / (235.0 - 16.0));"

Once that was gone. The movies had perfect gamma again.

From what I remember Aali is fixing the gamma for his next driver, too.

It's probably something minor that I'm doing wrong, but whenever I run the setup, I always get an error when it tries to install the movies. The error states "Access is denied" on all attempts to install any video to the default folder, "E:\FF7\Movies". I figure all I'll have to do is allow access to the folder, but for some reason, I do not have the option to do so. What am I doing wrong?

And if it's of any importance, I'm running this on windows 7 32-bit.

Access denied issues can usually be fixed by right clicking the application and running as an administrator.

Right, but in this case, it's the folder in the iso I'm not allowed to access.

Oh I see. I misinterpreted your post, assumed E: was a hard drive, not a disc image.

To use these videos, you need to install them to a separate folder on your HDD. Just like you can't write to an actual game disc, you can't write to an ISO like that.

ehm im sorry i feel kinda retarded, but um there aren't any installation instructions in the original post and I don't know how to get these working. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Should I put them in my data folder perhaps? I dunno I guess I'll just keep trying stuff.

You have to change the registry key to match the folder you want to use, and place the movie files into a folder (the installer will place them where you want).  Your problem is the registry is still pointing to the disc location and not the folder the movies are now in.

make sure it has a leading \

for example, c:\movies\ and not c:\movies

ah okay I will double check that. Thank you very much sir.

*edit* it worked thanks again! However now I am having a new problem, the sound doesn't really work, as in it cuts in and out or is just way off, in the intro video the song even restarts half way through. Now you'll probably say to upgrade my aali's driver. I am using 0.7.8 right now. Wish I could use 0.7.10 but it pretty much breaks all of my custom models (doesn't use them, shows all kinds of glitchy things in place etc) and also seems to have problems with the mod path if memory serves. If you know how to resolve these issues with 0.7.10 I would love to hear it, or if there is another way to fix the sound that would be great to. Or perhaps could there be a problem with ff7music?

Yup you will need it or above to run these properly.  And it might be ff7music or windows vista / 7.  Windows vista and 7 have problems with sound.  Check forum.

An issue I noticed in your FMVs is that there is a distortion in the four sides of the picture of every video, which causes them to not align properly with the backgrounds (most noticeable in the Opening).

It's not very noticeable at first, but once you do notice it, it's impossible to ignore. You probably won't redo them, but I though I should make you aware anyways.

You also forgot to add the "fullrange=on" flag in the H264 settings when encoding them. Without that flag, Aali's driver renders the videos in the wrong colors (0.7.10b).

vegas doesnt have such an option...  and it did work fine in the older driver.  So I guess people will have to use older settings for the range?

Any case, I havent noticed any shifting.  They were compiled at perfect resolution.  The same as original.

Show me what you mean in screenshot.
