1.Re: world flags transitions !!!!!!
Posted by rehan on 7/21/2008 1:13:56 PM
OK If this is a conscious decision.... but perhaps unlike you I have more than 300 transitions. Scattered ones are almost lost. However I can edit your XML file myself to arrange as I like... so not a big problem.

For the relative path I forgot it only works with titles. So yes you cant do that. This makes it difficult to make it compatible with other language/regional installation of xp.

FYI: For this reason on vista with ShaderTFX I allow using system ...

Good attempt. Some comments:
* group your transitions by giving them a prefix such as "Fayfen Flags: Brazil"
* Make the path to image files relative such as:
<Param name="MaskName" value="AddOnTFX\fayfen\lebanon.png"/>

4.PIP Plus 1.0 released
Posted by rehan on 4/4/2005 5:50:33 PM
I have made available the final release version 1.0 of my PipPlus plugin at http://www.rehanfx.com/pipplus.htm.

This plugin is completely unrestricted for 15 days. After the trial period expires it can still be used freely to do:

1. Picture in Picture with preview
2. Solid Borders
3. Image Overlays with either chroma key or alpha channel

yesmar, please explain the problem. What do u mean by "cant get it to stay up"? Is it crashing? Are the other effects (non PIP+) working?
6.Re: PIP Plus 1.0 released
Posted by rehan on 5/5/2005 7:09:04 PM
Oh I see. You need to switch to timeline view and drag the second clip over the first towards left to increase the overlap. The overlap length determines the duration of a transition.

To change the duration of a static picture itself drag its right edge to increase/decreased its duration.

AddOnTFX folder is only part of the issue. The main DLL goes in C:\Program Files\RehanFX\PipPlus\ folder and needs to register itself in the registry. This cannot be done without Administrator privilages.

I am sorry about this... Guess I did not really test it thoroughly enough for the non admin account. Please send me an email (support at rehanfx dot org),I would like to sort it out.
9.Re: PIP Plus 1.0 released
Posted by rehan on 8/6/2005 8:14:43 PM
it can be used to achieve that sort of look, but needs to be done in 8 passes. First pass will place two videos in the top boxes form eample and then each new pass will combine one more video in the next box.

A pass is: render a movie (Ctrl-P) and use the result in another project.

My plugin does not come with all the possible transitions that can be done with it. The interesting stuff is left as an exercise for the user... This is because each person has different requirements. Study the XML of the provided effects, its not difficult to make your own effects and transitions.

I am receiving all those and I hope you received my replies too?
12.Re: Split Screen Effect
Posted by rehan on 9/6/2005 6:24:07 AM
Lanshire, do you know the difference of an effect vs a transition? An Effect only works with a single clip. Split Video needs to show parts of two clips one the same screen. How can a "split video" be an effect?
13.Re: Split Screen Effect
Posted by rehan on 6/15/2005 3:57:55 PM
Does your posting in this thread mean you are calling these split video transitions to be $tupid?

In what way are these "$tupid"? You could have said you are not interested in such transitions but how are these stupid? The $ in this word implies these are expensive too. But these are freeware.

If by posting a comment like this you are expecting somebody would get load of encouragement to make any special effects as per your wishes then I would ...

I have made available quite a few split screen effects on my website in the SPLIT package.

Enjoy.

Are you saying that you are unable to download the zip file?

The zip file contains just a single text file with extension .xml. I am not aware why the security software on you PC would want to block this harmless file. I have not seen this behaviour on any of SP2 machines here.

Please read the instructions on the page again. There is no tricky step though... download the zip file, extract the xml file it contains into a particular folder and thats it.
16.Re: Split Screen Effect
Posted by rehan on 4/23/2008 4:27:00 PM
Hi Blaine... After the trial period expires ShaderTFX should continue to work for vertical split transition that accompanies the main plugin package. The only limitation in place for unregistered version after the trial is for externally loaded images. Unfortunately the full Split Package used external images so doesn't work.

Anyway all these should work in freeware mode:

* Chroma Bluescreen/greenscreen transitions
* Cube rotate transitions
* ...

Now you can have all the split effects...

RehanFX SPLIT transitions for Windows Movie Maker v6.0 (Vista) based on ShaderTFX 'technology'.

It uses a mask image to define the split pattern so is freely extendable by your custom masks. A mask is a greyscale image such as these: Split Mask Images. The black area in the ...

Sorry for over running you Blaine! All these are things I had tried earlier on for testing purpose but didnt finish them properly unless it got asked for here...

But with Vista I am sure one can never run out of more ideas to try ...

Thanks for informing about the installer. I will fix it asap.

I had included a vertical split screen with centres adjusted in my ShaderTFX for Vista.
20.Re: Split Screen Effect
Posted by rehan on 5/6/2010 8:42:10 PM
It happens because the installer hasn't succeeded installation. You may not have full Administrator privilages. Try this:

1. Download ShaderTFX again and save it on desktop or any temp folder. Make sure you get 64 bit installer if you have Vista x64.
2. Close WMM.
3. Right click on the downloaded msi or exe file and select "Run As Administrator".
4. Complete the installation

Yes the transparency should work fine for Logo bitmaps.
22.Re: Image watermark
Posted by rehan on 3/14/2005 12:55:45 PM
Golfman, mylogo.gif is the file which contians your logo. You have to make it in some image/graphics program such as Paint or PainShopPro or PhotoShop

More detailed information is available about this here.

First of all JPG cannot have transparency. you have to make a GIF or PNG with tranparent background. You can use the free image manipulation softwares such as Gimp, Paint.NET or Serif PhotoPlus 6.0 etc.

Second the image needs to in the Shared folder which is ...
