FF: Interlace videos

Reported by: SF/androidi Owned by: Kirben
Priority: normal Component: Engine: AGOS
Keywords: Cc:
Game: The Feeble Files


The video that plays after hotwiring the ship plays
fullscreen but is interlaced while others aren't.
This made the video pretty hard to watch, maybe there
is something that could be done with this video so it
appear normal..

This is more of a feature request, really. ScummVM displays
the video as interlaced because the source material is

It would probably be fairly easy to make
MoviePlayer::copyFrame() fill in the blanks, though. The
trick would be to figure out when to do it. Unless all
versions interlace the same movies, in which case that could
be hard-coded.

It would be probably good to add this somehow to the encoder
as it already has access to the Smacker flags.

That won't work, unfortunately.

I'm told that in the 4 CD version, the cutscenes are stored
in half-size images with the "Y-interlaced" flag set, so the
interlacing happens in the decoding.

However, in the 2 CD version, the cutscenes do not have the
"Y-interlaced" flag. They use full-size images that just
happen to have half of their lines blacked out.

This isn't a bug, several videos in the game are meant to
shown with an interlaced style, as in the original game.
