    Best Practices for full screen animation / movies

    In the past, we were having issues with full screen animation and or playing movies. If I'm exporting to .exe for Windows, what is the best way to do this? Should all movies be converted to .mp4 and played in scenes with no other event handling in them?

    Curious how people do this. Also, is it better to keep the files under a certain size, duration?

    The place I used to work at used bink videos with separate audio, I think. Do we have a way to integrate bink files into projects?

    Well I always use videos in my projects, so maybe I can help.

    Put an 'Active Direct Show' Object in the top left corner.

    Go to Event Editor > Start of Frame > Load movie file "apppath + "C:\Game\Demo.mp4"

    Time Equals 00:01 > Play Movie.


    Make sure the movie is made to the resolution of your application, and your done.

    Thanks. I'm worried about play rates and games crashing because people don't have the right codecs. Also, licensing issues. I was going to use OGG / OGM video so I wouldn't have to worry about licensing issues, but I thought there might be something people were doing commonly to avoid such issues. Not sure if using OGG video produces issues or not.
