As many might know I'm a big machinima fan and for years have made my own shorts for TS2. Some were on Youtube for TS2 and TS3 and many were simply for fun and my own entertainment. However, I have found the Video Editor in Windows 10 is a horrible program unlike the Movie Makers of XP, Vista and etc. since it won't even let me see an .AVI file to edit and keeps saying I need an extension to run the file or even edit it. I assume this is a codec problem with the old VP6 vs the VP9 Windows 10 uses? (Which is probably not backward compatible in that video editor).
I could convert all my TS2 'movies' to a different type but that would be a huge work load as I do have a video editor converter in my old W7 pc if I can get into it and put them all back in and then convert them to MP4 or something.
Question for those of you like making your own stories and videos with TS2 movie clips you film inside the game what Video or Movie Maker are you using to do this since the one is Windows 10 or even for free download is a horrible app and doesn't even let me see it let alone edit it or make a story from them. (I did search the web first to solve this problem but none of the answers fit the .AVI files of TS2 movies. Most the answers were about files needed you can get for free, to edit in 10 from an iPhone video). Questions were like what type of AVI file is it? All I know about that is TS2 used the VP6 and VP7 codecs to film while playing in the game when you click the V. lol Any other type of avi file is not known to me to even get any help.
What type of movie maker are others using to make a story from the TS2 .avi files?
