RE: Movies to PC

Hi All,

  On the subject of digitizing TC videos, I found from my own work (okay,
it's not a TC video, but the compressor will work), that Bink! made by Rad
Game Tools www.radgametools-dot-com
 makes the *BEST* compressor.  It handles adding sound and made my 25 meg
animation only 5 megs with practically no visible loss.  It's free for
non-commercial use (good thing I'm not making commercials! :)   It's a free
download, and it works.  Same enging 90% of the cinematics on video game
CD's is compressed with (diabloII, etc).  Awesome compression, i usually get
5-6:1.  Very high quality product, and free!   It compresses existing
animations, makes separate frames into an animation and compresses it, adds
sound and compresses that...you get the idea.  Also makes self-executing
files, so ppl can download from your site & not need a viewer.  Only
drawback is the un-licensed version has a splash screen.  No biggie with me
			Hope this helps, and ask me offlist if you got problems

PS, did I mention it's free? ;)
