I just looked at it... its pretty easy actually, you need to have all your frames in pcx format.
Put them all in /quake2/bin_nt/video/something and call the files something0000.pcx, note that the dir shall have the same name as the pcx's and the 4 numbers after the name is the frame. guess you only can have 10000 frames... (0-9999)
then make a script file and call it something.qdt in the script put this:

$video something 4 0

change something to the dir with the pcx's the 4 is how many digits that it shall be after the pcx (something0000.pcx) it can only be 3 or 4.
the 0 is what frame to start at i think, but im not sure...

when thats done, run qdata something.qdt and there ya go!! simple, huh?
you can also add sound to the cinematics, but i haven't had time to check on that yet... i think you need to put a sound file in wav format in the dir with the pcx's. i'll check it out as soon as i get time.
