effect needed
Posted: 05 Sep 2007 05:57 PM
i would like an effect like hexagons or pentagons or both that apear one after the other on the screen with the vidieo showing through them. if this doesnt make sense here is a link to what i am looking for:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wj5OS-m-BYQ

2:12-2:13 and also 2:16-2:17 (2:23-2:27 is a great example of what i am looking for)

there will be hexagons apearing on the screen and that is what i am looking for so if any one could paste a xml code up that would be great


basically any hexagone effect like that would work for me as long as they apear one after the other and the clip shows through them like a transparency hexagone effect

Fishy, is that(kalidascope) a program? or an effect? searched the "mega-list" don't see one in there. Or is this one out of your bag of tricks? like the backrounds scenes??? BTW what are using to capture (video) screen to do the demo on side by side, I like that! Take care! tt

I don't get Fishy's comment, other than perhaps he was saying the hexagonal design reminded him of a kaleidoscope?

I've got something for you:

Step 1 - Create an AddOnTFX folder
If you haven't already, go to the C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared and make a new folder called AddOnTFX. You can do this by right-clicking and choosing 'New Folder'.

Step 2 - Save the Image Files
Go to the link below, right-click and choose 'Save Picture'. Be sure to save the image into your C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared\AddOnTFX folder.

HexGridqk7.gif -- -- gradient image for doing a hex grid wipe (320x240)

Step 3 - Save the XML code
Open up Notepad (Start > All Programs > Accessories > Notepad)
Copy/paste the following code into Notepad.
Save the file in the C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared\AddOnTFX folder with a name of HexGridWipe.xml.

<TransitionsAndEffects Version="1.0">
<Transitions>
<TransitionDLL guid="{DE75D012-7A65-11D2-8CEA-00A0C9441E20}" comment="Blaine's Post #137642">
<Transition name="Hex Grid Wipe" iconid="33" comment="Hex Grid Wipe">
<Param name="MaskName" value="C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared\AddOnTFX\hexgridqk7.gif" />
</Transition>
</TransitionDLL>
</Transitions>
</TransitionsAndEffects>


Step 4 - Restart Windows Movie Maker
Close the WMM program (if it was running) then start it up again. This will load the new transition into the program.

Step 5 - Use the Hex Grid Wipe transition
1) Add a couple clips to the timeline.
2) Put the Hex Grid Wipe transition between the two clips. Overlap them more if you want the transition to take longer.

Step 6 - Preview then Save your Movie
This step is self-explanatory.

is there also a way to make this into an effect some how

like make it so that they apear on the selected clip like it is on transition but the hexagons are inverted on the inside so when they apear the area that the hexagons are covering are inverted

some thing like this

<img src="http://i120.photobucket.com/albums/o195/superwiz1111/bleachamvrenewal002_0001.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket">

i used the transition and took a picture thats the best picture i could get

if the link doesn't work try these:


http://i120.photobucket.com/albums/o195/superwiz1111/bleachamvrenewal002_0001.jpg

http://s120.photobucket.com/albums/o195/superwiz1111/?action=view&current=bleachamvrenewal002_0001.jpg

if none of these work go to:

www.photobucket.com

then go to search bar and type in: superwiz1111 (then click search it might say click here to see users album so click on it and it should be the top left picture with the inverted hexagons i am talking about). Hopefully you understand this if not i will try and be more discriptive

So in short if you could make an effect with hexagons that apear on the clip inverted than either randomly apear non-stop until the clip is over or they apear until they fill the screen then stay like that until the clip is over

Hi lvl3anbu.

If you just want to put shapes appearing on your video, there's something called "Overlay". Take care, you do need to be good with graphic editing software to create a "transparent .png" file of the shape. I'm not, so I've never actually used Overlay myself. Sorry. But it is very popular with lots of people here. Search the forums and there are lots of threads about it. One of them should help you.

There's also some stuff about it on Papajohn's website, hidden away in the so-called "Persian Section", which isn't really in Persian at all, but in English, just to confuse you!

Or... If you don't want to use Overlays, you could edit the HexGridWipe.xml file to:

<TransitionsAndEffects Version="1.0">
<Transitions>
<TransitionDLL guid="{DE75D012-7A65-11D2-8CEA-00A0C9441E20}" comment="Blaine's Post #137642">
<Transition name="Hex Grid Wipe" iconid="33" comment="Hex Grid Wipe">
<Param name="MaskName" value="C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared\AddOnTFX\hexgridqk7.gif" />
</Transition>
<Transition name="SPLIT: Hex Grid" iconid="33" comment="SPLIT: Hex Grid by Pippa's Ghost">
<Param name="MaskName" value="C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared\AddOnTFX\hexgridqk7.gif" />
<Param name="Progress" value="0.75" />
</Transition>
</TransitionDLL>
</Transitions>
</TransitionsAndEffects>

The new SPLIT: Hex Grid transition gets a result like your JPG picture. The clip for the borders goes first, and the clip for inside the hexagons goes second.

Disclaimer: I know nothing at all about writing XML and have probably made some very silly mistake in the above code. But it seems to work OK on my computer.

That gives the full path to where the image file is.
