Transparent Video? [Request]
Posted: 03 Sep 2007 12:11 PM
I'm trying to get an effect where a video is transparent, which i'll put over ANOTHER video that isn't transparent...

or basically, a transparent video transition.

You want to use the 'Translucency' transitions.

well do you have it in "effect" form and not as a "transition"?
i need my picture to fade in as well...fade in from white

There already is a 'fade in from white' effect which you can apply to a picture, or video. You can do fades from other colors too, or a basic fade from a solid color image will get you the same look.

i'm sorry but that's not what i meant...

what i meant to say was, i want to use the TRANSITION called "FADE" along with an EFFECT called "TRANSLUCENCY".

I hope that clears things up

You can't really get a "translucent" effect because Movie Maker doesn't respect alpha channel transparency of a clip. Can you show me an example of what you are trying to do?

Here's a couple fade effects that would fade your clip against black or white...

<TransitionsAndEffects Version="1.0">
<Effects>
<EffectDLL guid="{EC85D8F1-1C4E-46e4-A748-7AA04E7C0496}">
<Effect name="Faded White" iconid="10" comment="Fade the clip against white">
<Param name="FadeIn" value="1" />
<Param name="FadeColor" value="16777215" />
<Param name="Progress" value="0.5" />
</Effect>
<Effect name="Faded Black" iconid="9" comment="Fade the clip against black">
<Param name="FadeIn" value="1" />
<Param name="FadeColor" value="0" />
<Param name="Progress" value="0.5" />
</Effect>
</EffectDLL>
</Effects>
</TransitionsAndEffects>

hmm there already is a transition that fades into the next video..... i think u mean you want it to fade in but then stop into a translucent state where the two vids are both seen?

add two clips to the timeline, then put fade transition between them how much you want.... save movie file then reimport. cut it where you want and add any translusency effects you have....

basically it does what you wanted.. it fades into the vid then stays translucent... do you have such transparency effects? i could post the xmls for you.

woops excuse me i messed up... i remembered the transparency are actually transitions.... oh well same thing as i said before... when you reimport it, cut it a little after the part where the fade stops and over lap it to where the fade stops and add the transition....

i hope im clear on this....
