Video to CBX
« on: July 25, 2017, 02:24:32 PM »
Hi all,

I am wondering how would you go about showing parts of videos in a CBX game?

Say I have a video: parts of which I wanna show in a game.

I remember back in the good old PC XT days we had dancing girls (and other stuff you don't wanna mention in the public forum) on b/w monitors taking less than a floppy (512kb).

Is it a matter of converting to b/w, then decreasing resolution and then using some sort of compressing?

I know of one compression where you simply look for the same data and do a xtimes data.
If you have one color then this would be effecient i think. There are probably a lot more compression types that are better then that.
