Hi, this is a topic discussed in a lotta previous threads, so u might wanna look for them using the Search function above. More specifically, go to "Search" (within the blue-colored menu up top), type in "ps2 rip" or something similar next to "Search for Keywords", click the button next to "Search for all terms", and then search away. :)

I've also posted on these types of topics many times b4, but I think my opinions don't really help many ppl.. I don't even have a PS2, or better yet, FFX. :?

But in order to rip FMVs off of PS2 discs, I think you might have to use a program called PSS Plex. It involves splitting .pss files (the pre-rendered scenes in PS2 games) into .m2v and wav files. Then I think u gotta use a seperate program in order to merge the two into an mpeg or avi file. Some ppl have trouble with it, some say it works.. But if this fails, you'll have to capture the scenes using a capture card. Anyways, PSS Plex is available here, but it only has the lite setup. I imagine the full setup is best to use, but I can't find it anywhere on the 'net. :evil: There might also be some PSS Plex guides if you look for them using Google or

Here is a good thread in which Ko Oh Yoku explains the PSS Plex in more detail. The link he provides is out-of-date though. Also in that thread is another program mentioned by ek1. It seems to be able to rip a various amount of PS2 games, including FFX. It's available here, but u need to register on that site, in order to download the file..

Again, I dunno much about PS2 ripping.. but I've ripped PS game b4, so I have an interest in these types of things. :roll: Sry if this doesn't help u.

all i did was make sure that the resolution was high enough for decent quality and it turned out ok in my opinion ^_^'

Well, people have done that. At least I went to this one site that had most of the CG animations from FFX up for download. But you can only make them so good of quality if you put them on the internet. If you rip the scenes yourself you can encode them with a lossless codec like Huffyuv to make them awesome quality and then you're guarenteed to get all the scenes you want. Awesome quality like that can make the animation look much more impressive, and is entirely worth it. :wink:
