Well, I can't get you something exactly like that, but I have something similar. Check out the following video.

Sample Window Wipe Video

Step 1 -- Download gradient image
1) Go to gradient image link.
2) Right-click and choose to Save the Picture.
3) Save the picture in C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared\AddOnTFX as windowgridml6.png
If you don't have an AddOnTFX folder, create it with New Folder.

Step 2 -- Copy the XML code
4) Copy/paste the following XML code into Notepad.
5) Save it in C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared\AddOnTFX as windowwipe.xml

<TransitionsAndEffects Version="1.0">
<Transitions>
<TransitionDLL guid="{DE75D012-7A65-11D2-8CEA-00A0C9441E20}">
<Transition name="Window Wipe" iconid="17" comments="Blaine's Window Wipe Transition, Post #143255">
<Param name="MaskName" value="C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared\AddOnTFX\windowgridml6.png" />
</Transition>
</TransitionDLL>
</Transitions>
</TransitionsAndEffects>


Step 3 -- Restart Movie Maker
6) Close Movie Maker and start it again.

Step 4 -- Create a black screen
7) Go to 'Tools' > 'Titles & Credits'
8) Create a title before the selected clip.
9) Choose the 'Basic Title' animation
10) Type a single space ' ' for the text
11) Change the text background to black.
12) Stretch its duration as needed

Step 5 -- Add your clip and the transition
13) Add your clip at the end of the black screen
14) Place the 'Window Wipe' transition between the two.

The result should be something like the sample Window Wipe video

I tried this step by step and it isn't working.

I got the transition to appear, but it just perfors a left to right basic wipe.

ok got it to work

the value needs to be changed to

<TransitionsAndEffects Version="1.0">
<Transitions>
<TransitionDLL guid="{DE75D012-7A65-11D2-8CEA-00A0C9441E20}">
<Transition name="Window Wipe" iconid="17" comments="Blaine's Window Wipe Transition, Post #143255">
<Param name="MaskName" value="C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared\AddOnTFX\windowgridml6.png" />
</Transition>
</TransitionDLL>
</Transitions>
</TransitionsAndEffects>

Now it will find the mask

This is an awsome transition

how do I make more masks or would a certain considerate guy be willing to make a few more..like

3 x 3 blocks (center screen)

3 x 4 blocks that meld into video "B" (for full screen)

Diagnol blocks from corner to corner forming a "X" then the center block expands out to become video "B"

Just some Ideas.....

I'm not sure what you mean by the "play again" flash?

As for doing this yourself, it is all driven by the gradient image. You can create your own. Basically it starts at the darkest colors in the image to the lightest. If you start with a white background, you can work backwards adding darker and darker shades, drawing on rectangles, etc.

In all honesty I don't know how to make the gradient files needed and the flash thing was my fault..I didn't know it was on the video...at the time it would flash it looked like it was part of the effect..my bad.

That means you didn't put the image in the same folder as noted in the XML, or you called it something slightly different. Notice that ImageShack adds M - L - 6 to the end of the name. I initially thought it was M - 1 - 6, but it is the letter L, not 1.

I think other shapes and gradient images would be really cool...I just don't know how to make those masks.
