I noticed that there were a whole lot of different transitions, but that's just Lucas's style. He's always been one to make the movie good in the editing room. Also, with this connecting the old and new trilogies, they are tryign to mimic the original transitions in A New Hope
4.Re: Green Screen Capability

Copy the text into notepad and save it as a .xml in this folder:
C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared\AddOnTFX
When you open movie maker, Greenscreen should appear as a transition in the transition folder.
Now, in your timeline you put your background picture first, and your foreground picture right after it. Then you drag the greenscreen transition between them, and stretch it to the length of both clips. It merges the two, but it is not perfect.

This effect acts as a green screen:

<TransitionsAndEffects Version="1.0">
<Transitions>
<TransitionDLL guid="{C5B19592-145E-11D3-9F04-006008039E37}" >
<Transition name="Greenscreen" iconid="11">

<Param name="RGB" value="0x00FF00" />
</Transition>
6.Re: separating sound from video clips
Posted by jeb314 on 4/25/2005 8:20:24 PM
Are you draging the video into the pane that says "Audio" and is undr "Transition" or the one that says "Audio/music" which is right under the one that says audio? If you are draging it into the first one, you should be dragging in into the one marked "Audio Music"
7.Re: separating sound from video clips
Posted by jeb314 on 4/25/2005 8:20:44 PM
Also, if none of this works, you can use a program to record the Wave our Mix of your clip and save as a seperate sound file. To do this in MM:
Go to Narrate Timeline or click teh microphone icon
For audio input source, select 'Wave Out Mix"
Open up windows media player and open your video clip that you want the audio from
Start reconding in MM
Press play in WMP and wail until your clip is over. Then stop both programs and save as .wma.
8.Re: Nuke white light on blue screen....attn Bigfish and Dlk
Posted by jeb314 on 5/14/2005 9:42:17 PM
I've been reading this, and I'm still kind of confused, but I'm wondering if you can use any of the other features on the "Microsoft Visual Filters and Transitions Reference " site in Movie Maker. I tried to use some of the other function numebrs, but with no luck. I'm especially wondering if you can use the composoting feature like a "background remover" effect that has been suggested before.

Posted by jeb314 on 5/15/2005 11:08:59 PM
I tried the following xmls, one only showed a black screen, and one only showed one of the pictures that I tried to merge with the transitions. It is possibly that I don't fully understand teh compositing.

10.Re: flash of light
Posted by jeb314 on 1/2/2005 7:56:28 PM
if you want something similar to a camera flash,slpit your video so that you have a clip as along asd you want the flash (probably 1/4 second) On that small clip, increase the brightness as much as you want to. It will appear that the video flashes for the small selected clip.

Posted by jeb314 on 11/3/2005 6:32:17 PM
I've found that lsmaker is actually what I use for all of my special effects. If you use MOTs, ALPHAs and AVIs, the postential is endless!

When the software it is ready, will you offer it for free download?
20.Re: LS MAKER?
Posted by jeb314 on 1/31/2006 7:25:52 PM
I'm not sure if this will help, but here's how I do the censor.

1. Copy Paste your censor image into the Picts folder in the LSMaker file.
2. Import your avi video into LSmaker.
3. Choose your censor image as your color and blade.
4. Choose image as your effect mode.
5. Go in frame by frame and add the censor image over whatever you want to censor. You can use the interpolation feature to make this easier.
6. For any frames where you ...
21.Re: LS MAKER?
Posted by jeb314 on 2/2/2006 6:45:28 PM
Actually you could. Just paste the AVI into the Pics folder. It it is not an AVI file, convert it into one.
22.Re: LS MAKER?
Posted by jeb314 on 2/3/2006 4:30:24 PM
If you get that problem, import the AVI frames and export them as JPEGS. Then use a .mot file to pot them together as an animation. There will be an example in the folder called spin.mot. Open it with notepad and edit the file paths to whatever the jpegs are, and then save it as a new file. AFter that, you import it like a normal image.
23.Re: Make my own Lightsaber sounds
Posted by jeb314 on 2/21/2006 7:06:20 PM
That's acutally what I ended up doing. Using my voice combined with generated tones from audacity produced an okay sound.
24.Make my own Lightsaber sounds
Posted by jeb314 on 6/18/2005 8:46:39 PM
I'm working on some star wars stuff with the new LS maker, and want to use only my own sound effects. I was wondering if anybody had any tips as to what I could record and then speed up/slow down/adjust in audacity to sound like the lightsaber sound effects in Star Wars: humming, clashing, turning on and off, etc.
25.Re: Make my own Lightsaber sounds
Posted by jeb314 on 6/20/2005 7:15:18 PM
Yeah, that would work, but they're protected by copyright and I can't use any copyright material in my project.
I'm still trying things, working okay. I've found that even my own voice works well.
