Needing a zoom effect please!
Posted: 22 Jun 2012 02:34 PM
I have a quad view camera, and i'm needing to be able to zoom in on the bottom right hand corner and remove the rest of the video.

If anyone can help me out I would greatly appreciate it.

The answer depends on whether you are using WMM 2.x or WMM 6.0. Please provide details.

I have both versions, which ever one would be the easiest solution I can work with.

In WMM 6.0, there are 4 effects that are almost exactly what you want (Zoom, Focus Lower Left, Zoom, Focus Lower Right, Zoom, Focus Upper Left, Zoom, Focus Upper Right)

If you want, custom versions could be created that are exactly 1/4 of the screen.

Okay, here are the custom versions for exactly 1/4 of the screen.

Copy this code into Notepad. Now save this on your Desktop as "QuarterScreen.xml". Finally copy that file to C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared\AddOnTFX.

<TransitionsAndEffects Version="2.8" >
<Effects>
<EffectDLL guid="TFX">
<Effect name="Quarter screen (lower left)" iconid="41" guid="Quarter screen (lower left)" comment="Blaine's post #253889" shadermodel="2">

<Param name="FXFile" value="Parity.fx" />
<Param name="Technique" value="PanZoom" />
<Semantics>
<TextureViewport evaluation="Step" type="float4">
<Point time="0.0" value="0.0,0.5,0.5,0.5"/>
</TextureViewport>
</Semantics>
</Effect>
<Effect name="Quarter screen (lower right)" iconid="42" guid="Quarter screen (lower right)" shadermodel="2">
