I am talking about the FreeSDK ofcourse. And no there is no movie / video support with Scaleform Video. Using FLV / AVI video files and converting to Swift / GFX files does not work in the engine.

USM is a 3rd party license codec. It's extremely expensive for licensing. The FreeSDK does not support this. There is no supplied AVI/MP4 -> USM converter available anyways.

More info here : http://gameware.autodesk.com/scaleform/ ... s/videoime


After requiring the codec (on a license from Autodesk), you need this :

I'm working on adding WebM video codec support to CryEngine3 FreeSDK. There are converts avi/mp4 -> webm available, but it will still take me about 2-3 weeks.

Well how is he supposed to make an USM file when the converter and codec is not included ? Also trying to playback FLV files embedded in a SWF/GFX does not work either. Screen goes blank. This is becouse Scaleform Video is not included. But i have yet to try embedding JPG files (still images from a sequence) into a SWF/GFX file. And set up the timelines with images from 0-100 for example.

Scaleform Video is not supported on the FreeSDK (nor UDK). It's extremely expensive. You cannot play USM files unless you have a special license from Autodesk. This is also explained in post above you.

Why would they cut out Scaleform GFX support if they just included it ? Or do you mean if the next version will support Scaleform Video? If the latter, i doubt it since the expenses is way too high. Not even UDK includes Scaleform Video.

no way to play video atm. Wait about a week I'll release a Videoplayer Plugin soon for webm format.
