REQUEST: A few effects please?
Posted: 01 Sep 2007 06:54 PM
I was just wondering is it possible to create a soft/glowing effect for Vista? I would prefer it if it wasn't 'grainy' either. Here's an example of what I mean here:
http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=6Jk4CyvqDqM

And also, can anyone make some effects similar to these:

Motion Blur (M4) found here:
http://www.windowsmoviemakers.net/Forums/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=74030&PageIndex=1

And the 'Movie Look' tints, found here:
http://danielmmfx.googlepages.com/blendinglight6

They're currently only available in XP but it would be great to have them for Vista. If anyone can help, I'd really appreciate it.

I used to go by the name of EmptyChild but I've lost my password and cannot retrieve it as I have also changed my email - hence the new username.

I know we're not supposed to bump threads, but my request has been stuck on the last few pages for quite a while now, and I have not seen any similar posts in the meantime.

So by bringing this request to the front again, I am hoping someone can help me out as I would LOVE to have these effects and I would really, really appreciate it.

As for the example video for the 'Glow Effect' - here's another video as the other has been removed from YouTube.

It's pretty much the whole movie. It's what they call a White Glow. I can get the same effect in Photoshop but I have no idea how to get it in movie maker.

No, it's not - but thank you anyways. I do appreciate it.

I think I've found what I'm looking for with Blaine's Bloom Effect. I knew the collection included Bloom In and Bloom Out but I didn't realise it had the Static Bloom as well which is similar to the glow effect.

Also, Blaine's Saturation/Desaturation pack comes close to the Movie Look aswell.

All I need now is the Motion Blur effect if someone can make it.

Well yes, I made the Static Bloom a few days ago, so good timingWink. Motion blur.. Well, going to try but it will be difficult. The blur itself maybe not, but direction and stuff like that need a new DLL.

For Blur In & Out, view post 167223!
Actually, on the video in the second post I see a bloom transitions - I made one (yesterday) that you need to apply on both video's (so split - out on first - in on second) and you get a bloomtransition. I also make bloom to 50% - from 50% so. view post 165791! (scroll down)
On the blur. Well, I can give you different types: little to much and inbetween if you want: (so this is just blur - no direction):

Very simple as you can seeSmiley- TheOnePb
(Make more? - just change the number. 20 = very dark already, yes, I know!)

Thanks, that's actually quite handy because I always found the original Blur effect to be too much, so I love that I can choose from various percentages. Thank you!

Thanks for your responses all. I made these for myself about a month ago soSmiley. I like changing the standard effects a bit that you get new things! But you're all welcome and keep requesting, because then new things will come into existenceWink!

And thanks considerate guy! If you have some time, there are new bloom veriations so, maybe change the discriptionSmiley?
- I really like this survey, the XP is very messy (sorry)!

Okay, I updated the description of the bloom variations to be less specific.

How about a blur in and blur out effect like the bloom in/bloom out effect?

that would be cool. maybe someone can make something like that by looking at the fade and fade out from the grayscale effects and modify them to the blur effect. that'd be very cool.
