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:

  • 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
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[] or here.
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.

I thought it may take 1 day or so to complete the conversion. But after about 12 hours i find the conversion was completed. It just converted about 50 files and said the conversion was completed. I restarted the conversion and modified project.squish to remove files converted before. Hope this time it can finish the conversion properly.

Yeah, at first utility was located in d:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\NieRAutomata\vid folder but then i just tried to run from D:\vid folder and all works =)

Usually that means one of a few things:

1) Vidsquish isn't being given permission to access the locations it needs

2) There's non-standard/non-English characters in the user folder path (or the entire OS isn't set to English)

3) Vidsquish is not being run on the C drive

None of these things should be a problem since I've specifically designed around all of them, but for some reason some people's PCs still have issues for reasons I have yet to discover.

So i downloaded Vidsquish and tried to run it - it says Unpacking libraries and that window just stays forever doing something..

Ok it finally finished and it took about 23 hours with an i3 CPU with 2 instances of Vidsquish, it seems to be working great so far.
Thanks for making this possible btw I really apreciate it :steamhappy:

The file is only a suggestion, you can select anything with the same extension.

To run multiple instances, split your files up into separate folders and then run Vidsquish multiple times and point each instance to a different folder. Same process as before, only it actually works now :)

What's the current method for running multiple instances at once?

I ask as it used to be the case that it needed the first file to point to.

You might want to separate your videos into different folders and run two instances of Vidsquish simultaneously, then. Any more than that would probably bog down your CPU too much to be usable, but twice as fast is better than nothing.

I have an i3 so thats probably why.
Lulech23  [autore] 8 mar, ore 17:23 
That seems exceptionally slow. If you have a recent i5 CPU, for example, you should be closer to 20% by now. It's still a long process, but that's what pause/resume is for.
