    Halo 3 film clips cant be converted into normal video formats because they are not actually any sort of film. Halo 3 film clips are actually more like a list coordinates, these coordinates are read by the halo engine and the appropriate models are placed at the coordinates. If that's not enough info I am sure someone else will go into more detail about how it works.

    He is saying that it does not store the actual film.
    Instead it recreates the game.

    Its called rendering. So sorry, but it isn't possible.

    Hate to shoot you down but I dont think this is possible. The game saves screenshots in JPEG format already, all Container edits does is remove it from the container. Unless you can find a way to get the engine running to replay the footage from the files i dont think it's going to happen anytime soon.

    To add on, only Bungie can do that because they made their film format and they understand how it works. Unless Bungie releases their way of doing it (which I'm sure is never going to happen), you won't be converting any films.

    Ofcourse, but they are rendering them using the engine they scripted to only work under specific conditions that they set.

    actually container edits is my programs name, you cant use it unless its approved from me or I make it my self. You CANNOT make an apps newer version if im the creator of the first 2

    Actually he can call the app whatever he wants to, including Container Edits. You can't do anything to stop him, but it would be an ******* thing to do and unoriginal.

    If you could make a Halo 3 Emulator for windows to play films I will pay you a billion dollars

    You would have to have the exact same setup in your PC as a 360, to do so.
    So its the same as having an exploitable console.

    no you even know what an emulator is? it just runs the game, what he'd have to do is build the halo 3 xex for windows and thats not going to happen

    Impossible.
    A halo 3 film is not a format. Bungie places objects from the saved file (aka the theater file after you play a game) It records the x and y s of all the objects. And places them.
    So therefore you wont be able to do it.

    screenshot's maybe possible, Because bungie does it.


    Well good luck with your some-what impossible project.
