Introduction
Nier: Automata uses a number of pre-rendered cutscenes which are encoded in an MPEG-type format at ultra-high bitrates, resulting in inefficient videos that occupy a large amount of space and may perform poorly depending on your hardware. Furthermore, the game engine was not designed to crop or letterbox videos on non-16:9 displays, resulting in stretching for some users. While some limitations inherent to the game itself prevent solving all issues without an official patch, with the right tool, users can still enjoy an improved video experience better suited to their needs.

Formerly NieRepack, Vidsquish now provides an easy-to-use GUI to do just this, with all the necessary tools packed right in. Check it out at the official Steam group:


Features
  • Easy-to-use GUI with all the necessary tools packed right in
  • Pause/resume support for long conversions
  • Support for three levels of compression, offering everyone the ideal compromise of filesize and image quality
  • Two resolution profiles to further tune size versus quality
  • Letterbox and crop options for 21:9, 16:10, 3:2, and 4:3 aspect ratios
  • Optionally upconvert framerate to 60 FPS using either frame blending or advanced motion estimation
Download
Vidsquish is available to download from the official Steam group.

It is highly recommended to use this new version as it offers features and updates not available to NieRepack.

Still want to use NieRepack anyway? It can be downloaded either here[dl.dropboxusercontent.com] or here.
Setup
Vidsquish does not require installation. Simply download extract the application to the directory of your choice and run Vidsquish.exe

It is highly recommended to make a backup of your original video files if you have the free space for it. Vidsquish is safe to use and will not likely corrupt your data if it is interrupted, but depending on the features you select there may be no going back to your videos' original state. Alternatively, if you don't have the free space for a backup, you can always run a Verify Integrity of Game Files operation to restore the original videos from the internet.

No, it should be done in a matter of seconds. Do you see anything located in the "%APPDATA%\Vidsquish" directory at all?

@lulech23 checked it with 2antivirus' came up 0.
does the unpacking library process takes that long? like maybe an hour or something?

@[SOUL] you might want to check your PC for crypto miner viruses. Several users have had that problem with my applications based on the Vidsquish framework. It seems the virus prevents access from certain Windows functions Vidsquish needs.

@MurdererFight I personally have not experienced that, but I've heard some other users who have. You might want to check the Vidsquish group threads to see their comments on it.

There are artifacts mainly in the bottom part. Is it normal?

I could use a different PC to work the files. Thank you very much for this tool, the cutscene are now super smooth in 60 fps.

Some people seem to have bad luck with medianoche, unfortunately. It's a very old file at this point, so some systems just aren't 100% compatible. I've never encountered the issue personally, so it's difficult to troubleshoot, and I've already patched the .exe to try and improve stability. Unless someone else with the same issue found a fix, your best bet is to try running on a different PC if you have one (or Virtualbox/VMware).

It seems that medianoche doesn't work, the tmp-files are not created and so, they can't be renamed to .usm.

Thank you very much for making such an application to fix a problem the developers should have.
Unfortunately it doesn't work for me. I use the tool just as described, but it seems to not change the usm-files. It looks like it's working, the preview picture changes, the progress bar progresses and the avi- and mpg-files are created and deleted in the project directory. But the usm files don't change their file size nor their creation date. I even started the tool as an administrator and put the tools and the movie files on C:\. So far, nothing helped.
What could be the problem?
