How To Add a Splash Video (vsb)

From The Official Visionaire Studio: Adventure Game Engine Wiki
How to add a splash video to be displayed on game startup (2 methods)

This tutorial shows you how to add a splash/logo video to be displayed when the game is launched. There are currently two methods available for adding a splash video. Personally I recommend using method 2 as it's a lot more flexible.

Quick note:We recommend using mkv (Matroska) with vp8 video codec & ogg (vorbis) audio codec because it's an open-container format & it also allows embedding of multiple language audio tracks & subtitles. For more information on Visionaire Studio & supported video formats, please check here.


Method 1: Intro movie

1. Click on Game25 new.png on the main menu bar to open up the game properties tab.

3. now locate & select the video file that you want to use for your splash video. Click open & you're all done. Quick note: if the video resolution is not the same size as your default game resolution, don't forget to tick the scale movie checkbox.

3. Now open up the select file dialog window by clicking on this Open dialog icon.png button. Locate the video file you want to add, select it, then click on the open button. If you are done adding actions to the at begin start following action actions list, click on the close button to confirm & close the action dialog window. Quick note: using this method is really nice because you can chain multiple videos & splash images & various other things together to be shown when the game launches; unlike method 1 which only allows you to link a single video.
