Rehan, I would love to download your split vidoe effect, but I cannot open it in my MM.I tried to turn my virus scan off (per your suggestion) and it still will not allow me to download.I really believe it has something to do with the security system that comes with the Windows SP2 package.I can't believe I'm the only one will this problem.

Are you saying that you are unable to download the zip file?

The zip file contains just a single text file with extension .xml. I am not aware why the security software on you PC would want to block this harmless file. I have not seen this behaviour on any of SP2 machines here.

Please read the instructions on the page again. There is no tricky step though... download the zip file, extract the xml file it contains into a particular folder and thats it.

Does your posting in this thread mean you are calling these split video transitions to be $tupid?

In what way are these "$tupid"? You could have said you are not interested in such transitions but how are these stupid? The $ in this word implies these are expensive too. But these are freeware.

If by posting a comment like this you are expecting somebody would get load of encouragement to make any special effects as per your wishes then I would say you are very optimistic.

Lanshire, do you know the difference of an effect vs a transition? An Effect only works with a single clip. Split Video needs to show parts of two clips one the same screen. How can a "split video" be an effect?

Instructions for installing the split screen effects are there on the page where you downloaded (http://www.rehanfx.org/split_video.htm). They're pretty self-explanatory. The main thing is to go to C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared and make a folder called 'AddOnTFX'. Save the .xml file in that folder and restart Windows Movie Maker.

because it doesn't come with the basic Movie Maker installation... add it manually

Hello. I am new here, and like to say hello to you all. hello!
I am very sorry to bring up this old topic, but i too am having a bit of trouble with the split screen effect.
I downloaded the file, did the new folder AddOnTFX, i think it was, put the .xml extension on, unzipped it, but there is a lot of writing code in the file like -
<Transition name="SPLIT: Center, Vertical" iconid="50">
<Param name="MaskNum" value="21" />
<Param name="Progress" value="0.5" />
</Transition>

that sort of thing. I open wmm2 and look in the transitions part, but i see no split screen.
I saw another post on troubles with this in the forum, but it was no help, as i followed the instructions, looked at the screen shots, yet i can't seem to do it right!

I have always had trouble with .zip files

Look in C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared\AddOnTFX folder. Confirm you have a 'rehansplit.xml' file and that it has an icon of a globe in brackets < >.

Restart Windows Movie Maker and you should have several new transitions your list of Video Transitions. They all start with 'SPLIT:' so look alphabetically under 'S'.

welcome to the forum and thanks for the post.... you got me to add another line item to my list of basic computer skills needed to jump into the custom XML area, the zipping and unzipping of files

the Editing Movies > XML - Persian Section of my website, and the Editing Movies > Text > Custom Overlays is where I have my help info about XML.

seems like on this one from Rehan, you should be at his website getting help...

I can only make general comments as I can't tell from here what you're missing... keep swimming around

Re: Split Screen Effect
Posted: 17 Apr 2006 01:39 PM
I was just wonering if I could get some help for an effect/transition I am trying to create. I want to have two video clips playing at once for the entire duration of the clip. I have downloaded Rehan's effects including PIP(standard) and Split package. I tried using the transition but it only happens at the end of the clip and lasts for a few seconds. I want the two clips to play through their entire duration at the same time. Any help is appreciated.
