    The problem has actually been that the file I convert to bik already has sound, but it doesn't convert with the video. I haven't had a chance to try again, but I will see about doing it sometime in the next couple of days. I'll play around with some short file. If the first conversion has no sound then I'll mix it in from the same file and see how it goes. I'll post my results.

    well, it depends on which file types you have in mind. RAD video tools can convert only to avi or BIK. BUt it can convert from: mpeg,mpg,mpeg-2, mpeg-4, wmv, mov, and ASF

    well, for starters, what do you want to convert to, the only choices are avi or bik? If you want to convert to BIK than highlight your file and click "BINK IT." If you want to convert to AVI than once again, highlight your file, but this time click, "convert file".

    i tested the conversion from wmf to BIK, it worked for me, make sure itws up to date, click "check for new version" or something like that to get the recent version. I think it was a new addition. Anyways, the website says it can convert from mpeg-4 also.

    Sorry for the ******** bump, but can I ask something?

    So, can this program basically make an intro movie for the game (for a mod) and other movie things? If so, I think many mod makers will have fun with this. Thanks for posting dude :) ;) :lol:
