MMF File format
All MMF files have a header of
4D 4D 4D 44 00 in hex or "MMMD " in ASCII.
Synchronous Contents Authoring System, or SCAS, is a specification in SMAF used for animating sprites and text along with music in MMF files. It was originally intended to be used as an "animated" ringtone spec (PMD files can also do this, as seen on the Sanyo Katana) as well as for MMS/email greetings.
Currently, the only phones known to have SCAS content are various Anycall phones (SGH-X808, for example). The Anycall brand is exclusive to South Korea and China, thus making Anycall phones very hard to find anywhere else.
