extract movie file from game


Is there anyone can tell me how to extract a movie file from the compiled game data?

Well, I found some weird extensions but I can't found *.avi, *.mov or something!

I cannot copy n paste somewhat movie file type and then just rename the extension..!

What game is it? Most of the time movies will either be .cin files, or compressed in WAD or PAK files.

You can get a PAK editor, but again this depends on what the game is.

Thanks, I'll try to find that stuff n get some experiments.
also things are sometimes sored in .mix files. the easiest way to find video is, since it takes up a lot of space, compare the space taken up for each file, find the top ten, and deal with those extentions
Many games these days also compress their video in .BIK files. You can go to:


..and download BINK tools to view and extract those video files. A suprising amount of games use BINK compression these days for their intro movies and (non engine-rednered) cutscenes.
