DPL Color Shift Overlay Effects for ShaderTFX
Posted: 22 Apr 2008 11:31 AM
Some you may have noticed that I am a fan of ShaderTFX. 10 bucks well spent in my opinionSmiley

See a Demo of this package at DPL Color Shift Effects Demo Video.

If you like what you see, download and run the installer exe from Download DPL Color Shift Installer. You may need administrator privilege. It has a proper uninstaller. Six sample ColorMask effects will be installed.
You must have ShaderTFX installed and operating unexpired or registered.

In its simplest form, the color mask can be just a solid color. Then this effect just takes the original video, converts it to grayscale and then applies the solid color such as sepia, red, purple etc. as the hue of the video. It gets more interesting to make the mask different colors in different areas giving different highlights. Also, if the mask is a PNG file, any transparent area will just let the original video show through. Since the color biasing sometime darkens the video, there is an Intensity parameter to brighten it up again.

It gets more fun to cycle the colors through the hues of the rainbow with the HueCycleTime parameter.

And even more fun to create the Color Mask with color gradients. See the samples in the DPL Color Masks folder.

I use PaintShop Pro to generate the gradients with the gradient editor. Photoshop, Paint.net, Gimp etc. can probably do the same, or better.

A working XML file example for a mask image MyMask1 in the DPL Color Masks folder:

<TransitionsAndEffects Version="2.8" specialiconfileid="5630" specialiconresourceid="101">
<Effects>
<EffectDLL guid="ShaderTFX.ShaderEffect">

<Effect name="**My ClrShift1" iconid="0" guid="**My ClrShift1" shadermodel="2">
<FXFile value="DPL Color Shift Effects.fx" />
<Technique value="ColorShift" />
<TextureFile value="%ProgramFiles%\Movie Maker\Shared\AddOnTFX\DPL Color Masks\DPLPattern2.png"/>
<Semantics>
<Intensity type="float" value="2" />
<Param name="Progress" evaluation="Linear" type="float" >
<Point time="0.00 " value=" 0"/>
<Point time="1.00 " value=" 1"/>
</Param>
</Semantics>
</Effect>

</EffectDLL>
</Effects>
</TransitionsAndEffects>


Remove the Progress parameter above, and the effect will cycle through the full rainbow of hues once. Add a HueCycleTime parameter to specify a real time cycle in seconds repeating as long as the video the effect is applied to. The CycleDirection parameter can be used to reverse the traversing of the hue color ring. There is a bit more information at my web site below.

Enjoy, PatrickL

These are great as usual... I just need to figure out how to differentiate them from Rehan's ColorMask and ColorPass effects (view post 138155) in the pinned post since the names are similar but the effects are completely different.

Thanks Blaine. Your right, I made an unfortunate choice of a name. I remembered Rehan's effects masking out color to be grayscale, but didn't remember what he called it.

I'm certainly open to renaming this effect which basically applies a color bias to a video with a template and supports hue cycling. Any name suggestions CG or anyone?

Hi Patrick. Nice effects indeed. As for naming I suggest: ColorBias effects or ColorShift effects.

Hi Patrick,

Great work! Love them!!
The best name is ColorShift - it basically says what this effect stands for!

Thanks all for the ideas. A trip through thesaurus.com gave a few more candidates. including:

ColorWarp, ColorTwist, ColorSupplant, ColorReplace, ColorSupersede and ColorPattern.

Currently I'm favoring ColorPattern Effects. ??? It kinda implies both the static and dynamic cases.

OK, renamed it to DPL Color Shift Effects.

I edited the references that I could and the install package and files have new names. Did not redo the demo.

Sorry about the confusion.Embarassed

Now I hope some folks get some good use out of it.

You don't have to be sorry. Everyone makes mistake, and this was just a small mistake!
Good work, second edited package workes tooSmiley.. This was the first time I tested the uninstall package and yes, they work great too!

Hi just wondering if there was any way of changing the colours in the colormask with varying intensity. So say with two different shades of blue, or with color and B&W. I could go on but just wondered if it was poss to havea variety of colors for this effect.
Thanks :)

Yes. Any color and any intensity and any place. Except Black and White and shades of gray. Also any transparent areas will let the original colors show through. Darker hues will result in darker final image.

Have fun. PatrickL

This effect doesn't work for me, but your other ones do. It just makes a black screen appear and then it won't even allow me to publish the movie. I bought rehan's shader fx, and his effects work. Everything works except for this and the DPL deform. Any ideas? Thanks.

Nope, as you can see from the XML above (and the .fx files) the shader model is 2.

I just downloaded them and I too am not seeing them work. I see black which usually indicates it isn't seeing the image files, but everything looks correct on my first glance. I'm running this on a 64-bit version of Windows and WMM 6.0 with a 64-bit version of ShaderTFX. I'm sure these were originally created on the 32-bit version, but I don't see why they wouldn't work.

Hopefully PatrickL will be by sometime and can try them out and tell us why he thinks they aren't working.

I think I know the problem.
I was on my phone and guessed but I am on my computer now, it works for me.
Must be something with the paths and where stuff is installed. Wish I had a 64-bit computer to test.
The XML finds imgs by %programfiles%
but the installer installs to Program Files(x86)
And Movie Maker is installed to Program Files correct?
Could this be the problem, correct me if I am wrong Considerate Guy.

I had that thought too, but since I'm using everything 64-bit, %ProgramFiles% should resolve to C:\Program Files\. And in fact, other effects that have this same line seem to work fine. I also played with the .fx file to remove any dependency on an image and it still was black.

I think we need PatrickL and perhaps Rehan to look at this further. But when I get some more free time, I'll try to look more into what might be the problem in the .fx file, or whatever.

Re: DPL Color Shift Overlay Effects for ShaderTFX

Thanks for the heads up Blaine.

This fx code is right on the edge of too many instructions for Shader Model 2.

The 64 bit machines sometimes won't allow quite as many fx instructions.

This might be fixed by calling out Shader Model 3 in fx PixelShader (Most 64bit machines handle Shader Model 3?).

For those with 64 bit machines, try this change in the fx file.

///////////////////////////////////////
technique ColorShift {
pass HSVConvert {
VertexShader = compile vs_2_0 VS_Basic();
PixelShader = compile ps_3_0 PS_ConvertHSV();
}
}

The shadermodel="2" in the xml file is ignored?

After editing the fx file, when the hue cycles, part of it goes this grey colour. What do?

Good thought, but even that change didn't work. I also tried publishing a clip to see if it might work that way, but that didn't work either.

Blaine, did your test result in a black screen, or the incorrect shaded image like MissWhiteMascara's test or something else?

Maybe also change the VertexShader to 3 in the fx and the shadermodel to 3 in the xml???
