Video flie size ?

  • #1, by UmonFriday, 30. August 2013, 23:40 7 years ago
    I was just testing to start a video file (cutscene) with an action area enter.
    A smale file around 50MB was ok but as i tried a bigger file with 250MB the game crashed (just shut down without any message).

    So my question is, is there a limit of size or a special file system (i read somewhere a hint to use .ogg flies, atm i use .avi) required / you have to look at?

    check the video encoding tips@here written by David (BigStans) the article isn't quite finished but it explains the recommend format, some programs for encoding/converting & some recommended settings etc...

    video is very unstable in vs3.7.1 but it has been reworked & updated for next release wink

    AFRLme: Little offtopic, I'm sorry but what is your guess about compatibility with 3.7.1 and let's say 3.8? I mean, would I be able to open the .ved file I made in 3.7.1 in the newer version of Visionare without the problem?

    yeah .ved from 3.7.1 should work fine in 3.8 - it's always been the case with each version apparently, although occasionally you might have to edit something to fix it (in case some action part has been changed/replaced etc) & if there's always the possibility that they would make a conversion tool - if required - like they did from 2.x to 3.x versions. Finally, there may also be an alternative project file format in the next release besides the current .ved one.

    Thanks AFRL,

    Unstable video atm doesnt sounds very good, but i will try the tips out of the link you posted.
    I know is hard to answer but how far away is the next release?
    Any chance for a release this year?
    The plan was to use a lot of videos so if i cant really use them, this would not be very good.
    And again... whats about 2.5D? I know ... but just want to ask again grin

    next release should be ready some time this year hopefully (with rate they are currently working on it) wink

    I can't say anything about 2.5D... no idea if it will be ready for upcoming release or a future release... the whole point in next release is to go cross platform with additional new features & bug fixes.

    More platforms and features sounds great smile

    There are still a lot of other things to do so i am not in a hurry, and sounds like it doesnt takes more then a few month till the next version is here.
    I move the charakters to the end then and use a single render pic as placeholder, and maybe 2.5D is here before i am ready, if not who cares i managed to fit the pre rendered models into the scene. Ok takes more time and looks sometimes a little strange but it will work mostly. grin

    Thank you for this info ARFL
