Wait though... you should already have crop 25%..

As in the XML:
<Effect name="Daniel's Crop 25%" iconid="9" comment="By Daniel">
<Param name="InternalName" value="Simple3D" />
<Param name="InitialScaleA" value="1.1547" />
<Param name="ScaleA" value="1.1547" />
</Effect>

Try checking under your effects menu again.

Thanks, Nicholas! :)

What I meant,
crop 25% up
crop 25% down
and left and right

Daniels crop only have 50% and 25% center crop.

I tried changing the number 75% to 25% of crop up, but it won't work.

Can you help me? What should I change in the xml of crop 75% up so that I would have 25%? :)

Oh, you want to crop in different spots on the screen... I'll work on it now. It should only take a few minutes.

Try this one out. It may not be what you are looking for... if it isn't, I can adjust the new and added values, and try to get what you want.

That would be awesome! So that it would be much easier to find and distinguish from 75% or 50%. What I did was read the name at the bottom. You could add your name too!

How I wish I could do something too, and put my name on it like... Rain's Crap. :lol:

Re: How can I crop 25%?

Well, actually I had a little help with the effect...

<Effect name="Square (Large)" iconid="1">
<Param name="InternalName" value="Simple3D" />
<Param name="InitialScaleA" value="1.0" />
<Param name="ScaleA" value="0.5" />
<Param name="ZScaleAStart" value="1.0" />
<Param name="Progress" value="0.5" />
</Effect>

The past effects by daniel, I couldn't get to 25% without going to far to 75, so with the help of the effect above, it worked. Daniels xml didn't have the ZScaleStart or MoveA parameters, so I added that to the next one to see if I could better control where I zoom in. Then, I remembered that the parameters in the effect above are set for it to be a large square in the screen with the video or whatever playing inside. I can't have a square, with the crop inside, so I decided that I maybe could double all of the parameters (except progress you can't change that) values, so I did, and it came out pretty good. But the DLL took like an hour I couldn't get this one to work lol.

Well, I did download it but the custom icons are still the same for me. Couldn't see anywhere Nick's name in my WMM.

They should be right next to the other ones Daniel made, and the icons should look the same as the 75% ones only with 25%.

Nick, looks like your crops squishes the image, Daniel's do not.
I found that yours

<Effect name="Daniel's Crop 25% - left" iconid="9" comment="Add-On by Nick">
<Param name="InternalName" value="Simple3D" />
<Param name="InitialScaleA" value="2.0" />
<Param name="ScaleA" value="1.0" />
<Param name="ZScaleAStart" value="2.0" />
<Param name="MoveA" value="right" />
<Param name="Progress" value="0.5" />

is squishier than Daniel's

<Effect name="Daniel's Crop 75% left" iconid="14" comment="By Daniel">
<Param name="InternalName" value="Simple3D" />
<Param name="MoveA" value="right" />
<Param name="Progress" value="0.5" />
<Param name="ScaleA" value="2" />
<Param name="InitialScaleA" value="2" />
</Effect>

I just placed them side by side on a still.
