A reqest: About the in-game movie viewer..


Recommended Posts

Hi.

 

As i'll be making some movies for the BSO campaign, intro, cutscenes, and so on...I have some wishes for the built-in viewer..

 

1. Better quality for the videos. The image is blown up quite big, but it is very pixelated, degrading quality almost 30-40% at least.

 

2. Support for more formats. It seems it can't play .wmv files, which my movies are created with. And some movies will play, but they don't have sound.

 

I have no idea if this is a huge task to "fix" or update. But just some suggestions from me. ;)

 

Cheers

Well, i don't really know how to do it, but i know it's possible. I've heard it from the devs, and i also read it a looong time ago here on the forums, where someone described how you could make it work.

That was me, and cutscenes ONLY work in the beginning and end of a campaign, AFAIK.

 

First, make a folder in your Lock On mission folder with the same name as the campaign itself. Now, if you want a cutscene as an intro to the campaign, place the video inside the folder and label it 0. For a concluding cut-scene, label it the number AFTER the number of missions in your campaign.

 

So if you have a campaign that's 8 missions long, and named "F15_Crimea.cmp", create a folder named "F15_Crimea" and put the movies "0.avi" and "9.avi" in it.

Glowing Amraam, DivX and XviD files play very well under LockOn. I tested them because I've been replacing default campaign files with diffrent movie files :)

If that is how it reads the files in the campaign there should be some file to alter so that it can read it the way you want it to... or is it hard coded?

I know that the player can play divx and xvid files, but i'm not familiar with rendering files into that format.. I've only done .wmv movies.

 

So i might get huge files with bad quality, or small files with even worse quality.. :confused:

I'm using the same program which i've been using all the time, Vegas 6.0.

 

It's just that, my previous attempts using divx, though 1 year ago, turned out quite bad, not even near the quality of the .wmv videos i've made.

I'm just not familiar with it.....yet :rolleyes:

I'm using Vegas 5 and I use Dr. DivX to encode, it's quicker. Anyhow, I'll take a look and give you some settings to use to configure DivX thru Vegas.

Here's my screenshots. I rendered a 36 second clip at 3.96mb. 8-10mb is typical per minute for a high quality vid. Check your PM's, I've uploaded the clip. It's part of a movie I'm working on, so I don't want to post the link publicly. ;) It was rendered from a 3mbps .wmv clip. I'll render one from the raw footage to see if we get any better quality, although the clip looks pretty good IMHO.
