Hi Jeremy,

I'm getting error message when trying to convert an .avi to snm

This is the error
snmerror.jpg
I started coverting the custom movies for the Impieral Hangar installation, I started converting the BriefRoom.avi, Ceremony.avi, LogoFinal.avi, Marko.avi everything went fine until I tried to convert the Pod.avi and Techroom.avi and I got the same error with both files

I even tried converting the sound wav to 22000Hz from 11000Hz and remaking the avi file, but I got the same error

Any Ideas?
Here are the original and new pod.avi files if that helps (New file named Pod5.avi)
Pod.rar

Hello,
Try to convert the audio to 22050 Hz, 16 bits per sample.

Another question, does the .avi file have to be 15 frames per second, I only ask as my techroom.avi is 60 FPS which = 120 images, I converted the wav to 22050 Hz, 16 bits per sample but I still get the error due the increase in FPS, so I reduced the avi to 15FPS and it converted ok, but then the movie was 3 or times slower, so I then reduced the images in the avi to 30, and 15 FPS, but it reduces the quality for the movie.

I'm just wondering if there is anyway to increase the FPS in your convertor, if not don't worry I could always keep the Techroom as an avi as the TGsmush will of course still play it :) it would have been nice though to convert it to a SNM file :)

Thanks, other than that it works just fine, it takes a while converting large files like the Intro_Final.snm to .avi but its fine, well done there.

Oh can I point you to this thread, it might interest you Imperial IFF Chatter I'm not sure how it works or if it works as there hasn't been any feedback from ual002, and this Justagai fellow just seems to have given up on it.

Take a look at the thread though :D

Hi, Unfortunatenly I can't upscaling the other files:
Battle*.snm and Prologue.snm
because I get this error while try to convert to avi:
bug1.png
hope will find a solution.
The
I have tried it with a standard Steam us/uk version of Prologue.snm and no problem.
When I tried to convert the Italian file myself I got this error.

The actual SNM file will play fine through the old player program. Something odd in another language videos maybe?
Link below to the file Marcop000 gave to be tested.

UPDATE

Hello,
I've updated XwaSnmConverter.

When a snm file contains invalid data, the program throws an exception. I've fixed it. Now invalid data are ignored.

Thanks so much for making this. :)
Firstly SNM to MP4 worked fine but there are some bugs.

Open an AVI file and try to convert to SNM and I get this

Converts fine in the old program

Is that MPEG-4 part 2 or MPEG-4 part 10 (H.264)?

Does your TGSmush.dll support all these formats, or have I missed something?

@keiranhalcyon7
When exporting to avi file, the codec is MS MPEG-4 Video v3 (MP43) for video and PCM for audio.
When exporting to mp4 file, the codec is H264 - MPEG-4 AVC (part 10) (avc1) for video and MPEG AAC Audio (mp4a) for audio.

@Darksaber
The format are not all supported by TGSmush.dll as the dll restricts the file extensions.
