    How to create ICON1.PAM (video icon) **TUTORIAL**

    This is a written tutorial on how to create ICON1.PAM (video icon). I haven't seen a tutorial for this anywhere (not even in the SDK) so I decided to create/share one. If you have ever created a video icon for the PSP you will find this really easy.

    Custom ICON1.PAM (PS3 Video Icon) - YouTube

    Download link for custom ShowtimeŽ.pkg - http://www.mediafire.com/?8d7ftjm3q33ne2t

    The things you will need:

    PAMF Tools - http://www.mediafire.com/?afngnyklhdrp4ww

    A 1920x1080 video file encoded with one of these codecs YUY2, UYVY, RGB24, Huff-YUV and DV-AVI type1/type2

    To start install PAMFTools then open up the PS3StreamComposer and create a new project by clicking new or Ctrl+N. Name your project then click next.

    On thext screen we use the default settings so just click next. Now we want to add a video to the project so click Video Source from the top toolbar and then open up the video you want.

    Also highlight your clip to make sure the codec matches.



    Next we need to re-size the video to 320x176 to do this click Filter Settings from the top tool bar then click setting... in the size section. Change the width to 320, the height to 176 and add black bottom to 0. Click update then ok.



    Click ok to finish with filter settings. Now we need to adjust some settings so the PS3 reads the file correctly so click video enc setting on the top toolbar then adjust the settings to match these



    Click advanced to change some more settings that match these (don't forget the Entropy Coding it's important)



    Click ok to finish with video enc settings. We are ready to run the program but first we need to check/tick Create EP Map. To do this go to run in the menu bar and click Create EP Map (again really important to this process).

    Now we just go to run and click Encode + Multipex + PAMF compose.


    Once completed the .pam file will be loacated in your Documents directory folder like this C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\Documents\PLAYSTATION(R)3 Stream Composer\MuxWork\YOURPROJECTNAME\YOURCLIPNAME\

    You can open your .pam video with the PS3StreamViewer to see the result. To use it on the PS3 simply re-name to ICON1.PAM and ftp(dev_blind not needed) into the homebrew/game/gamedata/savedata of your chioce (same folder as PARAM.SFO/ICON0.PNG). You can always make a package to install the ICON1.PAM if you know how.

    Limitations

    There is a 2.4MB limitation for ICON1.PAM. If you are using SND0.AT3 also this will be included with the 2.4MB limit. The simple equasion is ICON1.PAM + SND0.AT3 = 2.4MB limit.

    There is a way to make the ICON1.PAM file size smaller without changing the video clip being used. You do this by lowering the value of the average and peak bitrate in the Video Enc Setting.

    You can only use ICON1.PAM in the game category.

    Have fun and enjoy making custom video icon files for homebrew and of course your backed up games.

    I remember messing around with creating .PAM(s) with the psp sdk (which I of course legally obtained ). This method looks far simpler then the method back them. Thanks for the links and tutorial

    Thanks guys happy to be back here sharing with you all on ps3hax.net .

    @ Ron36

    I couldn't say where you would get a video with the right codec man. But I use vegas pro 11 cus it has the UYVY codec built in. In vegas pro the save format is .avi HD 1080-60i YUV. If you don't have vegas pro 11 you can get a free trial here http://www.sonycreativesoftware.com/...rials/vegaspro or if you hate Sony search for TheMrExus on youtube
