problem with blur effect
Posted: 13 Apr 2005 08:03 PM
A problem I seem to encounter whenever I use the blur effect, is that the video/picture being blurred moves right and down somewhat. Whenever I want to get something very blurry, it moves progressively down and right each time I add on a blur effect (I add on multiple blur effects to make the video more blurry),

Now, is there a way of making a single effect to make a video very blurry, or a way of keeping the video in it's proper place when using multiple blur effects?

Yes this is indeed a noticable movement... I think the filter is beling applied (internall) in one direction from top-left to bottom-right, thus displacing the pixels slightly.

Here is something to compensate this unwanted movement:

<TransitionsAndEffects Version="1.0">
<Effects>
<EffectDLL guid="{B4DC8DD9-2CC1-4081-9B2B-20D7030234EF}">
<Effect name="@Compensate blur movement" iconid="25">
<Param name="InternalName" value="Simple3D" />
<Param name="MoveA" value="left, up" />
<Param name="Progress" value="0.01" />
</Effect>
</EffectDLL>
</Effects>
</TransitionsAndEffects>


As usual, the code needs to be copied into notepad and saved in C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared\AddOnTFX\blurmove.xml. Make the folder if needed and restart WMM.
