MPG to AVI?
on Oct 9, 2006 at 12:12:18 am

My camcorder records in .MPG format, and pillusion does not accept .MPG files as a background image.
Is there a crack I can use to make pillusion accept .MPG files? Or is there a way to get software that willconvert .MPG files to .AVI files for me?

There's no way to bring MPG natively into particleIllusion or any sort of fix that would let you. Some video editing programs will let you import MPG and save it as AVI, but if yours doesn't you can always grab VirtualDub, which will do that and a whole lot more.

Here's a little gem of a program that I use regularly:

AVS Media - Video Tools

Of special interest is the Video Convertor utility as part of the suite:

Convert between all video formats: AVI (DivX, XviD, etc.), DV AVI, MP4 (inc. Sony PSP and Apple iPod), WMV, 3GP, 3G2, QuickTime (MOV, QT), SWF, DVD, VOB, VRO, MPEG 1,2,4, MPG, DAT, VCD, SVCD, ASF, MJPEG, H.263, H.264, Real Video (RM, RMVB), DVR-MS.

Any use?

Kind regards

Roderick Davies

Thanks.

I got Virtual Dub, in fact I already had it, but when I try to import an MPG file, it gives me this error:
"MPEG Import Filter: invalid pack at position 3; marker bit not set; possibly MPEG-2 stream"

How can I fix this?

Could be that for whatever reason Virtualdub doesn't like the MPEGs that your camera makes. Another possible solution is MediaCoder, though I haven't used it myself.

I found out how to fix it, I got Virtual Dub Mod.

Thanks for your help though.
