Multiscreen Effects for Vista
Posted: 08 Jul 2007 12:18 PM
I have made these effects for Vista Movie Maker.

MultiScreen Effects for Vista Movie Maker (freeware).

This allows to make a tiled effect of screen in arbitrary number of columns and rows.

* 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 parameters: ScreenFactor and ScreenTranslation. Both of which take two comma seperated float values (float2).

For further information and how to use these parameters you can study the supplied xml for the ready made effects. Here is an example:


...
<Effect name="RehanFX MultiScreens 2x2 middle" iconid="3" guid="RehanFX MultiScreen 2x2 middle" shadermodel="2">
<Param name="Animation" value="FX" />
<Param name="FXFile" value="rehanfx_multi.fx" />
<Param name="Technique" value="MultiScreen" />
<Semantics>
<ScreenFactor type="float2" value="2.0, 2.0" />
<ScreenTranslation type="float2" value="0.5, 0.5" />
</Semantics>
</Effect>
...


Hope you like this.

Here is a demo.

Really nice... I see you used the pixel shaders instead of the vertex shaders. I had problems with that too. Incidentally, your icon for 4x4 is showing the previous icon.

Rehan is in the process of moving houses and therefore his internet provider:
view post 151721

He asked us to bear with him while he migrates items off his old ISP's server to another location. Perhaps he will see this and give a status update. Or you could send him an e-mail. His address is listed in that other post (link above).

I downloaded this and it works, to an extent. I can make a multiscreen of one video...but I was hoping I could make a multiscreen of 2+ different clips....aka a splitscreen. Is there another way to do this, or did I dl the wrong thing?

Go back to the pinned post view post 126998

In the ShaderTFX download there are transitions that would allow two clips. There is also another download called 'Split Video'.

Hi Rehan,

I am a newbie on xml ect. I noticed when I click on your link, is see there will be a file downloaded with a .msi extention.
What does it do? I mean does it created xml files? And where? And what other files does it create?
I ask this, because if something goes wrong, then I need to know which files I need to delete. I already worked a bit with .xml files. But then I know where I put my .xml files.

Thanks,

Psychedalien

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.

Please help! I downloaded this effect properly but it is not showing up in the effects folder. I have downloaded effects many other times so I know I am not doing it wrong. This happened with all of the effects I have downloaded today. They just don't show up in the effects folder.

Is there a limit or somthing for the amount of effects you can have? Because I do have quite a lot!

:] Please respond soon!

It didn't work for me either :(

Maybe it's because I have Windows 7 64-bit?

Booncy, you are correct. Many installers that were created for Vista were 32-bit (because that was the norm at that time). If you use a 32-bit installer on a 64-bit machine, the files end up in:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Movie Maker

To fix this, after the files are installed, copy everything that is installed (all folders and subfolders) from that directory over to:
C:\Program Files\Movie Maker

I'll try it again later on, but I'm pretty sure if everything you have is 64-bit, and you have copied the contents from (x86), then it should work.

To elaborate on my problem I installed the effects but all I can find is the SetupMultiscreen.msi
I can't seem to find the actual effects to move into the appropriate folder.

Click on the SetupMultiscreen.msi and the Microsoft Installer should run. The problem is it will install in C:/Program Files (x86)/Movie Maker/Shared. After it installs, you'll need to manually copy that whole set of folders over to C:/Program Files/Movie Maker/Shared

I did it and it works correctly. I see the effects in WMM6 and they behave as expected.

It's still not working for me. I still see a black screen in the preview window whenever I play the effects to see if they work or not, and I still see a black screen in the preview window whenever I apply the effect to the clip on the timeline and play the clip to see if the effect works.
