TopHalf/Bottom Half Zoom Effect?
Posted: 05 Apr 2005 05:02 PM
Does one exist? If so where is it.
What i mean is an effect that will basicly zoom either the top half or bottom half of the screen during the entire desired clip.

either that or an effect for each that will just block out the top half or bottom half for the duration of the clip.

So either zoom effect for this or block out effect for this would be greatly appreciated, if it exists.

You can make the effect using my Pan Zoom plugin or using custom titles.

For more details see my detailed article.

also rehan im not wanting it to zoom "into" the desired area, what i want is for the selected clip to stay zoomed in on either the top half or bottom half, or even simpler just black out the top half or bottom half.

In other words making the top half or bottom half of the video full screen.
OR
Just black out to bottom or top half as i said before.


Im trying to make this as clear as simple as possible so i will hopefully get pointed into the right direction.

Here are a few effects: the "Static Zoom Top Half" using my plugin and a custom title, and a custom title to mask off the bottom and top half. Note there are spaces in the xml which are intentional:

Copy paste the code below into Notepad and save as something.xml in the folder C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\shared\AddOnTFX\. Restart WMM.
