I have the Sold Out versions of the Tomb Raider series and I've tried to open the "FMV" seqeuneces using Window Movie Maker but it says that the file type is not supported. Is there any way around this?

You can try to go Chronicles dot com (you can download from there), I think that the FMV are compressed that's why WMM don't support them.

Can I use Tomb Raider FMV sequences with Windows Movie Maker?Yes, you can. Download the Tomb Raider FMV sequences HERE (http://www.tombraiderchronicles.com/theatre/index.html), and import them into your collections. After that, make your new movie. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif

I think you can not use the FMV sequences from your sold out versions of Tomb Raider because it's not a movie file. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

Thanks, I did discover that about an hour after I posted. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif However those FMV sequences have a telltale "tombraiderchronicles" logo in the lower right, which I'm not too keen on, and they also have sound which I'm not sure how to turn off when making a movie.

You can turn the sound off by selecting all the clips / portions of clips that you have 'dragged' down to the video section (that make up your own video, that is), right click and select to 'Silence', 'Turn off sound' or any similar option; I have greek Windows, so I'm just guessing what that option may be in english http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif
