PC/Windows Downloads - Asset conversion and management
On this page, you will find some utilities and applications to convert PC audio and video files into CD-i formats and vice versa. These tools are especially designed for CD-i developers. Note that some of these tools are 16-bit Windows 3.x applications which will sometimes work fine in Windows 95/98/NT/2000, but lack the use of long file names.
MediaStockRoom is an integrated package allowing you to convert still images and audio files to the various CD-i formats and vice versa. It allows for the creation of extensive databases with asset files for easy retreival. Please note that although the program supports multiple PC formats as input, only uncompressed TARGA is supported for 24-bit images.
