RAD Video Tools Download
The RAD Video Tools are a set of utilities for processing video, animation, and sound data. They include both of our video codecs: Bink Video, our current 24-bit true-color codec, and Smacker, our much older 256-color codec. All modern games now use Bink - Smacker is rarely used now-a-days. Bink Video is a "better-than-DVD" video codec. That is, it compresses better than DVD at up to three times the playback speed! Bink scales from the low-end Nintendo DS all the way up to HD video on the latest consoles and PCs. Smacker was designed to compress 256-color video and animation for the previous generation of games. It is now used mostly with games that need to run on very low-end hardware (the education market, for example). It is unlikely that you will need to use Smacker for your videos.
