question regarding bink2/bk2 encoding

hey guys. i've noticed a lot of my games have bk2/bink 2 format movies, at least the newer ones i have. since radtools doesnt/wont allow non-profit users access to the bink2 sdk/plugin, if i encoded a bk2 with the bink 1 encoder, would the graphics be bad? as in, encoded a bik2 with bink 1 encoder then renamed the extension to bk2? sucks that us non-commercial repackers cant use the bink2 stuff or premier plugin without shelling out hard cash for it.
oh well. can someone tell me if it would hurt the bk2 movie quality if i encoded using bink 1 encoder? let me know what you think/find out.

catch you on the flip side.

Also binkpack works for many .bk2 videos too. I always check it before compressing the whole game. If they are incompatible i usually use Video Rad Tools to compress them to bink1 (output will be higher if you dont touch the ratio). I use a ratio output of around 80%, there is a little bit of quality loss, not much really but size is also a bit smaller and after that you can rename the files to .bk2 and use binkpack on that.

Edit: Oh, and on some games there is only 1-2 videos incompatible with binkpack, for example on AC Unity it fails only on one .bk2 file and on Black Flag on half of the bink files. On latest codemaster games all videos are non working, at least from my tests.
