Hmm... I followed the instructions but it didn't show up when I restarted movie maker. I tried to import them, but it said it didn't recognize that type of file. Am I doing something wrong?

Did you save the notepad file in the correct fodler. if so check the file name you saved. Notepad sometimes puts a .txt at the end. To make it work the file name must end with extension .xml.

yeah teh xml file is there, all correctly named and in the right folder (I did have to make the new folder as suggested). Is it suppose to just appear in the transitions area when I boot up movie maker or do I have to import it?

Hi Rehan

Is this motion parameter unique to the DirectX Media Wipe Transition or can it be used with any transition?

Where are such parameters docuemented?
They weren't mentioned in the "Creating Custom Effects and Transitions in Windows Movie Maker" document.

I did a search on MSDN
http://msdn.microsoft.com/workshop/author/filter/reference/properties/motion_3.asp
where it says the "motion" attribute can be used with "GradientWipe".

glow, you have answered the question yourself, so dont know what to say :-)

yes the motion parameter only applies to GradientWipe transition. It would be nice if it applied in general. I think i tried it with smpte wipe transitions but it didnt work.

Yes you're right, the motion parameter doesn't apply in general. However if you check out IE 6 Headers & Libraries and view the dxtmsft.idl source you can see that the motion parameter is on a couple of other effects too.
Cheers
Dean.
