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.

There's technical reasons minimize isn't already a feature, but I'll keep it in mind.

Works where I had major problems getting the last version to.

Thank you so much for reworking it x

Update: Vidsquish 1.0 is finally here! This one's a total rewrite and should provide a much more pleasant experience for everyone. If you've already converted cutscenes with previous versions, you don't need to convert them again, but this new version of Vidsquish will make it much easier to add further games and customization options in the future!

You really need to be using FAR to eliminate the frame drops entirely--if you're not already. If you are, it sounds like there's some other sort of bug going on. Unless you can verify that the frame drops are hard-coded into the files created by Vidsquish, it's not a Vidsquish problem.

It worked for the first play through, on the second one the picture starts to get HUGE framedrops and almost stops sometimes, do I need to do the same thing for more files?

@Lulech23 I reran it after redownloading the game and followed the steps you recommended and it worked perfectly! thanks for the help!
