Electric Color Effects
Posted: 26 Sep 2008 07:20 PM
Ok, I made these effects based on the "Electric Colors" effects that the Shader.fx has. Because the original "Electric Colors" effects only had basic colors, I decided to make some more colors to be used. It was kind of hard finding some good colors. I just typed in any random color that I knew and saw if it worked! Before I get started saying MY effects, here is a code of all the original effects that I got from someone else (trial version, but works forever) (I also put a (C) in front of them so I could find them more easily... but they aren't my effects:

<TransitionsAndEffects Version="2.8">
<Effects>
<EffectDLL guid="ShaderTFX.ShaderEffect">
<Effect name="(C)Electric Black" iconid="0" guid="(C)Electric Black" ShaderModel="2">
<Param name="ShaderFilename" value="Shader.fx"/>
<Param name="Technique" value="SelfGradientEffect"/>
<Semantics>
<Param name="BorderSoftness" type="float" value="35" />
<Param name="BorderColor" type="color" value="black" />
<Param name="BorderWidth" type="float" value="25" />
</Semantics>
</Effect>
<Effect name="(C)Electric Blue" iconid="0" guid="(C)Electric Blue" ShaderModel="2">
<Param name="ShaderFilename" value="Shader.fx"/>
<Param name="Technique" value="SelfGradientEffect"/>
<Semantics>
<Param name="BorderSoftness" type="float" value="15" />
<Param name="BorderColor" type="color" value="blue" />
<Param name="BorderWidth" type="float" value="25" />
</Semantics>
</Effect>
<Effect name="(C)Electric Green" iconid="0" guid="(C)Electric Green" ShaderModel="2">
<Param name="ShaderFilename" value="Shader.fx"/>

Hi BlackbuckTwilight!

Nice to see someone making new effects up hereSmiley!
They work fine, but:
view post 7 for the purple color that you should use to let people know it's a vista effect...
And: renaming them to (C) = putting them on another place. People with an unchanged ShaderTFX will have these effects first and the normal at the R.
Also: try putting all your effects in one XML:
Example

<TransitionsAndEffects Version="2.8">
<Effects>
<EffectDLL guid="ShaderTFX.ShaderEffect">
<Effect name="RehanFX Electric Aqua" iconid="0" guid="RehanFX Electric Aqua" ShaderModel="2">
<Param name="ShaderFilename" value="Shader.fx"/>
<Param name="Technique" value="SelfGradientEffect"/>
<Semantics>
<Param name="BorderSoftness" type="float" value="15" />
<Param name="BorderColor" type="color" value="aqua" />
<Param name="BorderWidth" type="float" value="25" />
</Semantics>
</Effect>
<Effect name="RehanFX Electric Lime" iconid="0" guid="RehanFX Electric Lime" ShaderModel="2">
<Param name="ShaderFilename" value="Shader.fx"/>
<Param name="Technique" value="SelfGradientEffect"/>
<Semantics>
<Param name="BorderSoftness" type="float" value="15" />
<Param name="BorderColor" type="color" value="lime" />
<Param name="BorderWidth" type="float" value="25" />
</Semantics>
</Effect>

Re: Electric Color Effects
Posted: 27 Sep 2008 08:33 PM
Again, thanks for your advice. The only reason that I don't put them all in one big code is that I don't have that much time to try to do all that. I will every once in a while, but I didn't have enough time to do it at the moment. AAAND, the only reason why I put a (C) at the beginning is so people know that it was my custom effect. If you read my first post, you'd know that (C) stands for my name. I added (C) also to be able to find my effects easier. I think I'm going to leave all of my effects with (C) at the beginning, and if it bothers you, you can change it to whatever you like. I just did the (C) thing for a logo kind of thing, and for my own uses. If enough people want me to do the originals if they are based on a seperate group, then I'll start renaming them along with their original group and just put the (C) at the end of the effect so that the effects all group together, but the (C) stands out at the end. That might be the way to go. Thank you for making me realize that! :-D

These are Vista versions, but Rehan's ShaderTFX must be installed and operating.

hey this is probably a simple matter to fix and im just overlooking it, but I can only a few of these effects to work for movie maker (all of rehan's appear with only a black screen) I am running Vista and have Movie maker 6.0. I have also downloaded rehan's fx program. is there anything else im missing?

Sometimes, for some reason, the screen goes black, and other times, they work perfectly. I'm not sure why it does that, but it does sometimes. Not necessarily is something wrong with it. It's just Movie Maker that screws up sometimes.

(Unless, there really IS something missing. lol)

Do you need ShaderTFX to use these??

If you expect the unexpected then the unexpected becomes expected and then what is there to expect??
