Use PSXMC for VII and IX. Download PSXMC and open the PSXMC folder. Double click and execute PsxMC.EXE. No installation is required. Read the Help Files on how to work this program.

I highly recommend you do not download FFX footage, and rather rip high-quality videos for yourself. Use FFX2mov linked above- this is an easy tool to work with, very simple.

I have the following downloaded

DVD2AVI
Extractor 2.4
The File Spliter

This is not required for any FF ripping except for X-2. You do not need these for 8,9, and 10.


PsxMC isnt workin...it didnt even instail.....at lest i think it is PsxMC
This is because installation is not required. (Read above.)

(sorry ment to quote that and type what i'm about to say)


Ok the really cleared things up..and thatnk you for sticking with me on this. i'm so horrible at computer stuff, but i really wanna do these videos.

I do have a question though...i tried looking up something to help me use it. But

1. Its in japanese.....
2. the F1 help screen didnt seem to answer any questions.

...i even had my friend going to school for computer look at the program and he couldnt even help me. LOL i really didnt wanna seem like a bother.

But if its not too much could you just act like i'm 12 and explain how to use it (I'm not as bad as a 12 year old)

if you cant i understand...you already did a whole bunch

Sure, ok. I got some time on my hands.

PSXMC:
1) Double click PSXMC.exe and launch the program.

2) Something to this nature should come up:
Image

3) Load up your game disc (in this case, FF8 or FF9) into your CD/DVD drive. I'll be using FF8 Disk1 as an example.

4) Once you've loaded the game disc click Open and Analyze CD-ROM in the bottom portion of psxmc:
Image

5) This should pop up:
Image
Select This CDAZ is Adopted, and the FF8Stream plugin should automatically be recgonized for the disc. (FF9Stream plugin recgonized when FF9 discs are put in accordingly.)

6)The lovely STR files should load now.
Image

7) Now go to PSXMC Options... on the right bottom corner area of the program interface, and then go to To AVI settings.
From here, you will want to select a lossless codec, such as HuffYUV, uncompressed, lagarith, etc. If you do not need audio ripped, deselct Audio under the codec option. Make sure to also choose a AVI output path to where you want to place the ripped movies.

8) Now that you got the settings done, press OK and click Start Convert...
When this is complete, you should have lovely video files awaiting in your output paths.

?

I beg to differ. I prefer PSXMC over PSMplay due to its features. And I had no problem whatsoever ripping the FF8 opening AMV in PSXMC- it may be due to an individual problem occuring in your computer?

Everytime I've tried it, it only rips up until the point that the gunblade lands in the ground...it won't rip past that.

Also, I've been testing PS1 footage with different codecs and rippers for awhile now, years actually, and PsxMC loses data and gives you weird artifacts, and overall, a crappy result before and even WORSE after you compress, far crappier than PSmplay. Want proof? Observe:

Here's a rip with PSmplay:

Now heres a rip with PsxMC:

Just looking at his nose alone you can see all this weird crap and picture errors. PsxMC does that. PSmplay is free of these. Try them both and compress them, and then you can see even more of a difference...it's pretty bad if you use PsxMC really.

If you're too lazy to do stuff yourself and get a far better result anyway (because using those features, that aren't all that great anyway, just make PsxMC ruin the film worse), then I guess those features are nice. But really, they're just making things worse when you use them.

I mean, go ahead and use PsxMC if you want because of a few features that make you think it's better....trust me, it's not...which is probably why 99% of FF videos look so horrible.

Well you might be right i dont know. But right now AMVfreak is being amazing and telling me step by step how to work this program. AMVfreak is slowly but surely becoming my god (or goddess O.o?)

either way to me the look doesnt look THAT much different, and i'd be more then happy with that other pic too.

And the opening isnt an issue with me cause thats one of the very good quility vids i have lready from downloading.

Oh, it's completely up to you. If you like what you see, then by all means use it...and inb no way am I downing AMVfreak's methods. If you find that easier and the quality is fine with you, that's all that matters.

Just trying to help a fellow AMVer get the best results, that's all. ^__^

Actually there is quite a difference as devilmaykickass has stated in that screencap above.

I am aware that PSMplay can rip some FMVs better than PSXMC. (This has also been stated in Quu's guide in ripping.) However, I have liked using PSXMC better for most cases because it has more flexibility such as being compatible with windows, and not confined only to 9x.(I know this can be changed, but I still like the hassle-free PSXMC.) But, in the specific case of FF8, I was not aware of such big differences in quality! 0.0 (I actually rip and use the much higher-quality PC .pak files-640x448 resolution ^^ )

If you do own FF9, I wonder if you could send me a lossless capture of a ripped FF9 footage off PSMPLAY for me? I do know that PSXMC's FF9STREAM had a very useful feature of reducing the noise present in the FMVs off the discs, and I do wonder how those compare also.

Also regarding the FF8 opening, FMV- I have yet to have seen or heard of that problem before. Mine works fine.

This I have to apologize for being a little vague. I own PSXMC Multi Converter (Shareware) which has some useful added features that enhance PS1 ripping. ^^

Actually ForeverZeroo, you would want to look into Devil's method for FF8.(Unless you own the FF8 PC version, which changes everything in quality.) From the caps he gave, the quality is quite significant in change.

I forgot to mention this to you devil:

The FFX ripping problems you had can be solved by hex editing the .pss files' headers in case you haven't heard. (thanks to shirohamada)
