: does anyone know anything about the .cin format or conversion utilities? much obligued...
*sigh* not yet. as one of the two persons on Chemical working on cinematics, I need to know that. Ive been hex editing them, along with samples of all the major movie formats (.MOV, .AVI, .MPG) seeing if I can find corelations.. I can't Unless this is some Sun format (which I don't think it is; Steed used 3DSR4 for the cutscenes (Anyone got that at home? Is it something it uses? I use lightwave myself, so I don't know if it has some wierd format). I've e-mailed ID twice, but they don't seem willing to co-operate, they havent answered me either time. Judging from the QUALITY (No offence ID), the fact that Steed was talking about size problems, and the fact that they tend to jerk a bit even on a P200, I suspect its some sort of compression format, ala .MPG and .MP3 files... but I could be wrong. Anyone else know this?
