DPL Animated Image Wipe Transition Prototype - For ShaderTFX
Posted: 31 May 2008 12:45 PM
This is a prototype of an Animated Image Wipe Transition concept I am playing with. Comments are welcome and suggestions will be considered.

See a Demo Video.

These animated image wipe transitions are kinda like the DPL AniLogo Transitions but oriented to full size wipe images. The new thing is the optional use of two types of masks.
1. Mask to arbitrarily shape the transition from ImageA to ImageB
2. Mask to arbitrarily stencil the animation to the transition area

Also there is a open or close to the center of the screen transition like a pair of sliding doors where the left(upper) half just gets mirrored to the right(lower) half.

I can envision animations of bubbling lava, various flame animations, swirling liquid, plasma etc. all made with a single image file including the masks and the animation frames.

You can see a sample sprite sheet with two masks here.

The current XML interface is:

RectTransition = {0,0,1,1};
AniSize ------ = {2,2,4}; // Cols, Rows, Images
MaskSize ----- = {2,1,2}; // Cols, Rows, Images
CycleTime --- = 2.0; // Cycle time in seconds
GoRight ------ = true; // Used in AniWipeH
GoDown ------ = false; // Used in AniWipeV
GoOut -------- = false; // Used in AniWipeHD & AniWipeVD
FlipHorizontal = false;
FlipVertical -- = false;
UseStencil --- = false;

Of course, these things can be a bit intrusive and should only be used sparingly, perhaps between theme changes.

Looks pretty nice PatrickL. I'm pretty sure it will even look better when you release it? Transitions are my favorites to create, i will definitely have some fun with these when you release them. Once again, looks great.

mtwolff, glad you are enjoying my packages. I have fun developing them, and use them myself a lot.

Yea, good idea. I originally just responded to a request in the XP area, but I'll work up a ShaderTFX version of the Wedding Transitions for Vista and post it here when I get it done.

OK, here are the DPL Wedding Transitions for XP translated to Vista using ShaderTFX. Pretty close translation.

Download Installer Requires ShaderTFX Unexpired or Registered.

Do you have Rehans Shader TFX installed? It has to be bought or in its trial, if your trail is up on it then the transitions won't work.

Did you run the installation as administrator? (By "right clicking" on the installer than "left clicking" on "Run as Administrator"

Did you make sure to open up the folder "AddOnTFX" (Which is inside the zip file you download) and move all the files inside of it to your original "AddOnTFX" folder? Which should be C:\program files\movie maker\shared\addontfx\

Although i am glad you mentioned this,i realized that i can make it easier to install, i am going to make a couple of fixes on these so its easier for people to install. I hope these solutions help, next time email me please, so we are not spamming up another part of a thread.

The pictures should be in this folder:

C:\Hitthebongo\ShaderTFX\Wipe\

You can not change where the installation installs to, or it will mess it up, which i blame my self for as well though becuase i should have made the folder in C:\program files\movie maker\shared\addontfx

Make sure you run the .exe file inside the zip folder you download from my site, just runt he installer and don't change the installation path and it should all be fine. For now, use this Temporary installer

All you have to do is right click on the file and select run as administrator and wait about 3 seconds, this installation is automatic so you will not seen anything pop up, just run it and wait for about 3 secs. Hope that helps, should fix your problem.

If your computer is dual booted then the main drive will change. I have noticed because i have my XP computer dual booted with vista. When i log on to vista, my program files isn't located in drive C:\, but D:\ So this will mess up the transitions. Which is why it is important to set the location path on the xml to %programfiles% instead of C:\program files, which is 1 thing i am going to fix on the xml. Same with the installer as well, if the new installer i provided doesn't work, sit tight, i'll try to get it fixed and published by today.

Patrick L.,

Are you going to launch this package? Because, you can do fantastic things, like a rolling wheel, that egyptian head, a car with moving wheels and more! Is this possible?ScaredSmiley

TheOnePb. I have decided to halt work on this one. It requires a lot of image/graphics work which is neither my skill nor my joy. If someone wants to collaborate with artwork I'll be happy to write/fix/enhance the code and jointly publish it.

Bergermeister, the wedding demo video seems to be offline now. I'll keep an eye on it and if that persists, will find another place for it.

The earlier download link will get an installer for the Vista version of the wedding transitions. ShaderTFX required.

Edit: Putfile seems Kaput. Here is a new demo.

what do the wedding transitions look like, meaning, what is a wedding transition?

I am putting together a wedding vid for my brother and wonder if its worth trying to download.
