Just posting this in case anyone else is interested.

I've just made some really good quality videos from the TR games. I could only do it with the PSX versions of the games, but used copies are cheap enough.

Once you've got your PSX disc in the CD Rom drive on your PC download a free utility called PSMplay. It lets you view PSX FMV movies on your PC and more importantly it will output them as .AVI files on your PC.

These can then be loaded into Windows Movie Maker or they can be compressed with VirtualDub using the free XvID or not so free DiVX codec or my choice: use the free version of TMPGenc to encode 'em to MPEG(1) video, the most universally compatible of all video formats. :tmb:
