JK/MOTS media

I was wondering if there is a way to convert the old Jedi Knight and Mysteries of the Sith cutscenes into a more standarized video format (avi, mpeg, etc...) or are there any codecs that can be downloaded so that they play in standard media players?

Anyone have any ideas?

UPDATE

O.k. I found a program that works on JK's media files. I found smacker, and it works perfectly on the .smk files on the JK cd. Now I need something that does the same thing for .san files on Mysteries of the Sith.

Anyone?

You might try the program FRAPS to capture the MotS cutscenes in another video format.

As far as I know the "san" files can only be opened by MotS itself (if another way exists, I haven't heard it).

I thought the MotS cutscenes were scripted. If so, there would be no way to play them without using the engine, and the only way to get them would be to use a screen capture program like Kurgan said.

I've since then obtained FRAPS. It's nice and all, but I hate the 30 second capture limit. Is there anything else that doesn't have a limit?

You need the full version of fraps. Jedi, can you put a link to that smacker program? And ive checked out fraps in JK, it doesnt read the fraps program...might just be me too.

I got smacker from http://www.radgametools.com/smkmain.htm
It works like a charm for Jedi Knight. As for FRAPS, is there a non-warez way to get the full version without making a donation, as they put it?

I have a little project that I'm working on, and I would rather not waste $29.99 for it. Maybe I'm just being cheap, but it's just not worth that much.

Well I need FRAPS to capture cut scenes from games that use the .san file extension. More specifically, Mysteries of the Sith and Shadows of the Empire.

As I am working on making a SOTE mod, I want a capture of the cut scenes, and 30 seconds just isn't long enough to record.

When I'm done with it, I then think I will start a Mysteries of the Sith mod (if no one else starts it before me.)

In either case I want to grab the cut scenes from each game.

You could make smaller captures and then combine them with another program.

Though I would think there would be some legal issue with copying all the cutscenes from one game and putting them into another...

If you're doing an MotS mod, it might be an idea to redo all the cutscenes in JA's engine, just reusing the sound.

Perhaps. I don't like the voice of Mara Jade though. It's too mousy in my opinion. Mara Jade is not a wuss, and yet the very first thing she says in MOTS sounds like she's a fart-whimpy little girl. My point is that I would use a different voice for her. Kyle's voice is perfect IMO.

Hey Jedispy, your doing a SotE mod huh? Well I would like to help you out anyway that I can, since im thinking of doing a SotE fan film in JA. And I might even go into the Dark Forces era aswell.
