Find the CKP parser, and you'll never need to convert the movies anymore :p

PS.: The parser allows windowze players to run .CPK as if they were any other kind of movie.

I have this Japanese CPK converter made in Visual Basic 2.0 that has converted every CPK I have ever seen flawlessly. I found it int he Vector archives, never seen it on any Sega page before.

Some people like to convert Saturn Cinepak movies to MPEG or DivX ;-) format, so that they can compile a collection of Saturn videos and burn to CD-Rs. In some instances, some even put the converted videos onto their web sites.

There are 35 Cinepak videos in Scenario 1, 2 in Scenario 2, and 3 in Scenario 3. Come to think of it, I believe the F33ED.CPK video in Scenario 3 is the biggest Cinepak video (163 MB) I've ever seen on any Saturn game.

Scenario 1


Scenario 2


Scenario 3

If you have Shining Force Scenario 3 (J), can you confirm if you can convert the 163 MB F33ED.CPK file to show more than 1:19 of video? All of the CPK2AVI tools and CPK movie players I've used keep giving me a 17.6 MB or 17.7 MB AVI file that plays only 1 minute 19 seconds long. For a 163 MB CPK file, I find it odd that the conversion to AVI was so fast, given that the source file was read from a CD and all. My guess is that the CPK tools only converted the first 1:19 of video or something.

Well, I don't blame you since 33 out of the 35 Cinepak videos in Scenario 1 are most likely from the ending as their filenames seem to indicate (END??.CPK).

Like I said, the parser solves the problem.

I just opened TMPGenc, chose a random profile, and when it asked me for a file, I just dragged SF3 Scen 3 intro into it. It was recgonized without trouble, and converted into MPEG.

The parser works almost like a codec. Most windows programs will recognize CPK movies as cinepak encoded AVIs when it's installed.

--EDIT--

Forget all the crap I said. The MPEG got the sound cut out... :p

Heh, the file I'm interested in using this parser on is the 163 MB (ending video???) "F33ED.CPK" video on Scenario 3:



---edited 7 months later---

I just tried the parser you gave me on the 163 MB CPK video and it shows the same 1:19 long 240x112 video with no audio. Oh well, ???

Yes! As we all know from the PSX, plot development and fun factor ONLY comes from pretty videos. God, if it wasn't for all those flashy videos, I don't know what I would do with all the boring gameplay in video games!

Well, MasterAkuma sent me the file the other day and while I havent figured out how to extract the audio........ yet. I have figured out how to get the full video out of there instead of just the 1 min long intro sequence. I posted how I did in it my other video ripping topic. I will look at it more when I get home or over the weekend I didnt have much time yesterday.

The topic is located here.
