How to edit subtiltes in pmf videos (FF Tactics PSP)
« il: Gennaio 20, 2016, 04:30:49 »
Hi everyone. Im translating this game (PSP version). But one thing I cant deal. That is pmf videos, the subtitles of pmf videos is a part of videos, not texts (hard sub, maybe). I dont know how to edit these subtitles.



I know you guys translated this game PSP version through these web:
http://www.romhacking.net/translations/2268/
http://romhacking.it/project/view/id/376

Is there someone from that team here? Or anyone here knows about this problem? I need your help about pmf videos. Please teach me, your help would be very appreciated. Thank you.

Hello there! :)

I was the one who translated the movies. A lot of time has passed, though, but I do remember, more or less, what I used.

Once there was a complete guide on how to edit PMF movies on Brisma's blog, but the site is not online anymore. It's a very long process though.

I found on Google a guide which explains how to convert from PMF to AVI: here.

I found another useful guide to convert back to PMF: here.

Don't worry if the guide says that it's for changing the boot video of the PSP. It should work as well with FFT movies.

Hope it helps, I wish Brisma's guide was still online, because it was entirely focused on FFT videos.

OK thanks for responding but please clear this to me: Your aim is convert PMF to AVI, then edit AVI, then convert back AVI to PMF, right?
Can I ask: How do you edit subtitles of AVI?

An .avi doesn't contains subtitles "strings", he probably just edited the video itself

As a remark, you don't need a PSP to convert the ATRAC3 audio stream anymore.

You can use PMFAudioDumper  and ffmpeg as follows:

1. dump the audio stream "PMFAudioDumper video.pmf"
2. convert the audio stream to wav: "ffmpeg -i file.oma file.wav"

I know. But how?

It's not that hard for simple subtitles.

I created the new subs with Aegis SUB and then I applied them on the movies through the program VirtualDub.

Of course, before inserting them I had to erase the original ones, but it's very simple (there is a tool in the program that applies a black box to the video).
