Just The Rang Without The Boomer
Posted: 01 Feb 2011 12:54 AM
I want an image to appear from a point in the center of the screen, and zoom inward to fill the screen. For the time being; I am getting this effect by making a short clip of an image using the boomerang effect and using just the last half of the clip in a video. This is a big problem because I have to convert the wmv file to avi before using it in a video because my wmm wont handle it's own file as well as it will avi. Then; I cannot adjust the time of the clip except with some presets I found here on the forum.

I'm hoping this effect will be easy for someone to make, or maybe it has already been made, and I haven't found it yet. It would be nice to have two of these effects, one with the spin, and one without. I'm already using the Boomerang effect, and like it a lot.

I've put a 5 sec. clip on YouTube, so you can see what I'm talking about.

Thanks, Guys

Here you go. There are 4 different effects:
Spin (Left), Spin (Right), Zoom (In), Zoom (Out)

Example: Spin and Zoom Effects (Video)

As shown in the video, you can use them separately or combined. If you use them together, apply a zoom effect first, then a spin.

<EffectDLL guid="TFX">
<Effect name="Spin (Left)" iconid="24" guid="Spin (Left)" comment="Blaine's Spin Left (post 238884)" shadermodel="2">

<Effect name="Spin (Right)" iconid="24" guid="Spin (Right)" comment="Blaine's Spin Right" shadermodel="2">

<RotationDegree evaluation="Linear" type="float">

</RotationDegree>
</Effect>
<Effect name="Zoom (In)" iconid="6" guid="Zoom (In)" comment="Blaine's Zoom In" shadermodel="2">
<Param name="Animation" value="FX" />
<Param name="FXFile" value="Parity.fx" />
<Param name="Technique" value="Rotate" />
<CameraZoom evaluation="Square" type="float">
<Point time="0.0" value="0.0"/>
<Point time="1" value="1.0"/>
</CameraZoom>
</Effect>
<Effect name="Zoom (Out)" iconid="5" guid="Zoom (Out)" comment="Blaine's Zoom Out" shadermodel="2">
<Param name="Animation" value="FX" />
<Param name="FXFile" value="Parity.fx" />
<Param name="Technique" value="Rotate" />
<CameraZoom evaluation="Square" type="float">
<Point time="0.0" value="1.0"/>
<Point time="1" value="0.0"/>
</CameraZoom>
</Effect>
</EffectDLL>
</Effects>
</TransitionsAndEffects>


Open Notepad, copy/paste the code above, save it in Documents as SpinZoom.xml. Finally copy this file from Documents to C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared\AddOnTFX and restart WMM.
