* It is made using XML and FX files only.
* It comes with a few built-in effects and their icons.
* The XML interface allows further customization by means of two ...

Hi Psychedalien
msi files are windows installer files. It will install the .xml and related .fx files in the appropriate folders. It will also place an uninstall option in the Control Panel as normal for other applications.

If you have concern over the use of the files, then download it and run a virus scanner on it before executing.

When you say you installed it to the AddOnTFX folder what do you mean?
You need to download the msi file and run it. It installs at the correct location itself.

Hi I would like to know more about this problem. Please can you send me the clips and project you are using? support at rehanfx dot org

This problem is a general issue with Movie Maker which happens due to many factors including complexity of the project (no of clips+effects+transitions etc), presence of incompatible codecs and format of source and destnation files.

In your case the presence of my transitions might be tipping the complexity level of your project off the threshold value. The known resolution thats works most of the times is to break your project into smaller subporjects and publish them ...

What avi flavour was the video? You can find out the avi's codec information using GSpot.

Convert the video into a more favorable format (DV AVI, WMV or Uncompressed-AVI) and edit that. Super is a good converter as well as VirtualDub. Use google to search.

Hi 007craft, you are right I dont have 64 bit machine... However I am trying to get hold of one soon. In the meanwhile you can contact me directly and I will add you in my list of 64 bit beta testersSmiley.

Posted by rehan on 5/14/2008 8:10:18 PM
Yes it should work. I have not changed anything.
However installation of it is known to be a problem for a very small minority of users. You may be unlucky to fall in this category.
1. Which version of Movie Maker are you using?
2. Are you installing it with admin account?
3. Does any other custom effect work

I have not managed to fix the installer for 64 bit vista machines. I think the installer copies the xml and icon's dll files into wrong folder. Please contact me for details.

Hi Pornster I am collecting money to build a 64 bit machine. Some way to go though. Ask your friends to buy my effects!Smiley

Posted by rehan on 7/21/2008 8:18:48 PM
Yes of course it works on 32 bit vista machine. It would actually work on 64 bit machine as well, the problem is only with the installer which does not place the files in the correct place on 64 bit machine.

I guess your account does not have full administrator privilages.

Learning from Blaine... I have also changed my package... So try downloaing and installing again from the above link.

Please explain what do you mean by "failed"?
19.Re: New Transitions pack: ShaderTFX with PIP + Chroma + Gradient Wipes
Posted by rehan on 8/6/2007 7:51:18 PM
Blaine, if he is having problem with yours then mine are no different. However I have strong suspicion if his problems are anything to do with the previous installation issues we have been discussing here.

Aar/Josh What is the problem you are having. It is rather frustrating to read vague reports of problems: "It doesnt work". "I am having problems". Try to read your messages from our point of view. What would you have made out of these statement?

Kindly include enough useful details in your problem report so that something can be done to help you.

Are you using Vista? Which version. Which version of Movie Maker are you using? (6.0 or 2.x). ...

StarGuy does your system have any unusual setup? What happens when you run on a gradient transition? Does it show a fade or completely blacks out?
23.Re: New Transitions pack: ShaderTFX with PIP + Chroma + Gradient Wipes
Posted by rehan on 8/13/2007 6:47:16 PM
Yes the ShaderTFX plugin expires around now (13/08/07). I will be releasing a new version soon.

New download is now available: RehanFX ShaderTFX BETA 2.

Whats new:

* Support for Effects.
* Support for color parameter for gradient wipes
* New transitions and effects package included: Self gradient wipes / Electric Effects.

Please leave feedback here.

Posted by rehan on 8/15/2007 6:03:00 AM
I think you need to uninstall the old version manually (from Control Panel->Add remove apps). After uninstalling it make sure that there is no file left in the C:\Program Files\RehanFX\ShaderTFX.

Then install the new version and try again.
