DPL AniBorder Effects - Animated Borders for ShaderTFX
Posted: 17 May 2008 05:52 PM
See a Demo Video of these Effects.

If you like what you see, download and run the installer exe. You may need administrator privilege. It has a proper uninstaller. Four AniBorder effects will be installed and one AniLogo Effect just to show that this code works for AniLogos too.
You must have ShaderTFX installed and operating unexpired or registered.

AniBorders are the same basic concept as DPL AniLogos, just using larger images with appropriate resolution to be a border, and conceptually you may have pure animations like the Flames Border or one or more animations mixed with a fixed background like the Halloween one. Also, there is an extra rectangle parameter for the underlying image to shrink it into an opening in a border (frame). This is a kit to show some possibilities, and for you to be able to construct your own Animated Borders.

The Border Sprite sheets are a bit large and take some time to load in Movie Maker previewing so you may see some pauses, however the final rendering will be just fine.

See my website for a bit more information and to see how you can build your own AniBorders.

Enjoy, PatrickL

Patrick L.,

The only effect that works is the Skeleton, which was here before in Anilogo 3, isn't it.
My manually borderfire worked fine, but now I only get black screens at the other for!!

This is the FIRST of you exe installers that didn't work correctlySad!!!!

Darn, I blew itEmbarassed. The old "It's just a little change, nohing could possibly go wrong" syndrome.

I corrected it in the installer but can't upload it as my server is "Undergoing Maintenance". I'll get the corrected one uploaded ASAP. Downloads still seem to work.

In the meantime you can correct it by changing filenames in the "DPL AniBorder" folder. The filenames should be:

Christmas1.png, Easter.png, Fire1.png, Hween.png and Skeleton1.png.

I apologize for not testing thoroughly.

*Slaps himself too...*Embarassed
You did something wrong, like everyone does sometimes. This is a small mistake but what you posted above can chause problems too.. (at least, it did at my brain)

"Change the filename". I copy and they still don't work. Lol.. Please remove the .pngWink..Angel My mistake too.. But stillScared!!

(Oh yes, for the Photostack, I need some adress to mail the XML too when it's finished so you can check it..)

OK my ISP's server is up again. I've uploaded the corrected AniBorder installer. The link above is now good. Please uninstall the previous version, then download and install this one. (one minor improvement is included).

TheOnePb your filename comment should suffice. Post your PhotoStack XML in its post and I'll check it. You have edit rights to make any tweaks.

Just a reminder. This code works nicely for smaller animated logo effects also.

Here is a 9 frame downhill skier caricature. Demo Video

Put this image and the code below in the AddOnTFX folder. ShaderTFX and DPL Aniborder need to be installed.

<!-- **** Moving Animated Logo using DPL AniBorder.fx and ShaderTFX - Save In AddOnTFX **** -->
<TransitionsAndEffects Version="2.8" specialiconfileid="5633" specialiconresourceid="101">
