Colour filtering
Posted: 13 Dec 2004 01:56 AM
Is anyone aware if any of the add on packages allow colour filtering? I want to damp down the blues, greens and darker colours while boosting all the others.
Is that even possible in MM?

Cheers for any advice.

Such precise control over parameters requires interactive adjustments... Movie maker is designed to work mainly via drag and drop type operations where no parameter adjustment is made. Therefore your requirements make MM unsuitable for you.

Premiere and all other major movie editors allow such precicese control.

But...
You can create individual effects that would perform
say 5% or 10% increments. The following 2 effects
would reduce red 10% or increase blue 10%.

I used the "reduce red" to take the purple tone
out of the water in a lake video I had. But you have to
use a little discretion when adjusting colors...it can
have interesting results.

<TransitionsAndEffects Version="1.0">
<Effects>
<EffectDLL guid="{B4DC8DD9-2CC1-4081-9B2B-20D7030234EF}">
<Effect name="red-" iconid="9">
<Param name="InternalName" value="Standard"/>
<Param name="Red" value="-0.1"/>
</Effect>
<Effect name="blue+" iconid="9">
<Param name="InternalName" value="Standard"/>
<Param name="Blue" value="0.1"/>
</Effect>
</EffectDLL>
</Effects>
</TransitionsAndEffects>

You can use red,blue,green,cyan(blue/green),
magenta(blue/red),yellow(green/red)

Dlk you're a legend!!
I played with the values a little and combined with a little age and shake at the start it's perfect!

When I figure out how to post the end result I'll let you know.
