The reason these don't work with 5.1 is because it only looks for RandomMovies with ogv, avi, mpg, or mpeg extensions. Ultimately the extensions likely don't matter... as long as the video file is supported by ffmpeg it should be able to load it. It seems that OutFox supports more extensions so mp4 should work there.

I'd recommend changing the HD pack to use .mpg file extensions so older SM versions can use them.

You mean for StepMania 5.1? Or are there even older versions (OpenITG, 3.9, 3.95, 4, others) that actually support more file formats that aren't .avi?

I was basing this on what I found ITGMania is using, which should be the same as 5.1 and possible earlier: https://github.com/itgmania/itgmania/blob/e2a48eb7267103b28436760a839819a2ec006e7d/src/BackgroundUtil.cpp#L318-L321

You'd have to find that function in other versions to find the common filetype used among the most versions. But .mpg is probably fine even though it isn't the typical file extension used for MP4 containers. FFMPEG will figure out what the actual container type is regardless of file extension.

Aw you're welcome. ^^;

I don't when 3.1 is going to release but I adjusted three videos since the release. I want to at least knock out half of the things I mentioned here before giving a release date:

Quote
*More of the remaining eleven videos above that are used in 20+ songs. snow4, spark1, grid4, thunder1, fish1, vortex1, blizzard1, light1, ring12(a), text8, and light6. I'm really not looking forward to dealing with snow4, thunder1, or text8. The others ones should be possible SOMEHOW though...
*Fix cube7, cube12(a), and add cube13.
*colors2
*Fix feather1
*Make the texture on kaliedoscope14 better
*spikes6 (will complete MAX 300 and Across the Nightmare)
*kl5 (will complete Kind Lady and Kind Lady -interlude)
*Make rotation5 not bad
*Improve stairs1.
*heart7
*jazz1 (will complete ON THE JAZZ and Superstar)
*amoeba2? (I stumbled across something that could be the big key in getting this clip created in May)
*Salvage fireworks6 and text35
*Improve egg6, egg9, fireworks6, text35, lines6, and fan3
*Get all of star4, 5, 6, and 8
*Redo sun3
*Rerender all of the 960x540 videos (blizzard3, grid6, and star11)

Snow4 has been completed.

A new computer I got makes it much easier to make videos as rendering them takes a lot less time. BUT it comes with an odd downside that Blender's window has washed out colors and I have to consistently render a photo of a frame and view it in some other image viewer to make sure the colors of a video are good.

This is an actually massive facelift you can expect to see fully animated in 3.1.

If anyone. Has any idea on how to make these clips exist and not suck [or just simply not suck in the bottom three's case], I'd appreciate it. The upper nine videos are part of a category of weird DDRMAX2 videos I've been trying to remake for... almost 10 years? And I haven't had luck with a single one of these.

Worst comes to worst, I could just keep using icube1 as amoeba1 and just come up with substitutes for all of the others [e.g. chain1 filling in for most of amoeba2's roles].
