I've been wondering whether or not the summon sequences during battle would be considered cutscenes. It'd be pretty epic to watch those in HD quality. :'3 Maybe that's just me.
I'll like to have all possible cutscenes from FF XIII if you don't mind creating them. It's not that I haven't played all the battles multiple times but it's still fun to watch them. Can also be used as a strategy guide for those who need help to beat them.
Hey just a quick question, the quality of these videos are amazing and with such a low bit-rate. What encoder did you use because i can't get quality like this even at 15,000kbs with Powerdirector 8.
EDIT: Im also using H.264
Xilisoft HD Video Converter 6 (more user friendly) comes close to meGUI in the video quality at 5Mbps bitrate. I used it to convert the original Japanese voice and subs cutscenes to be compatible with PS3. It also supports multi processors and multi video streams compression.
For anyone that prefers the WMV format for whatever reason, make to use WMA2 because WMA3 isn't compatible with PS3. WMV3 is compatible with PS3.
X360 cutscenes took total of 9.79GB at total runtime of 3 hours 42 minutes. I'm guessing when you are done with all the game cutscenes, they probably will take about 10GB.
If meGUI which is opensource can produce better cutscenes quality at 720p between 3Mbps and 5Mbps, then Square Enix is using the wrong Bink compressor to make the X360 cutscenes.
I think the cutscenes you make in 720p are better quality than X360 version. Square Enix should take a look at the quality of the cutscenes you are able to make compared to the X360 version using Bink.
I'm saying this because I played FF XIII on both PS3 (first) and X360 version.
