Hello. Please I would like to know how to introduce a video into my mugen. The goal is simple, by triggering a super move or a special move, or a transformation, a corresponding cutscene appears and when it ends (the video / cutscene) the game resumes its course.

Take a screenshot of each frame of the cutscene. Add it to the sff file. Display it as an explod.

No video in mugen. You have to reassemble it in the character the same way you'd put a gif together in other programs.


In M.U.G.E.N there is no magic button

They say a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, but it's not one half so bad as a lot of ignorance.

There are programs out there that can export each frame of a video as individual .png files.

i use VLC media player to take screenshots of the video its free and really useful.

it has a step button so you can take a screenshot for each frame and then you can take those screenshots to an image editing program like GIMP or photoshop to resize them all to scale.

i also use a batch convertion to make things go a bit faster

My Jailbot character has a custom cinematic intro built in when it is Jailbot vs Jailbot.

I used AVS Video Converter.  There is a conversion setting that will extract every frame into a folder as .PNGs.

I skipped a lot of the frames (maybe used every 3rd frame or so), and spent a lot of time posterizing them to reduce the file size impact.
