9 Square PIP+ effect.
Posted: 20 Apr 2008 12:55 AM
(don't think this was done before, sorry if it has)
This effect repeats your photo into 9 equal squares over
the duration of the clip. In it's current form, it only works
well on a still image.

I am almost done with another version that could work cleanly on video,
freezing the shot in each segment it builds.
This version would also work on a 9 photo movie.

Add 9 photos to the timeline
Make the movie.
Import the new movie
Add the new movie to timeline
Apply the effect and each square fills up with a clip.
Make the movie

A photo wall in 6 easy step, if this is of any interest.
There are other implications here, but I won't go there...
especially since we are really only talking still images.

Ok... here is version 2. If you do as I described above, create a
video of 9 photos(each of equal length), you can apply this effect,
and each photo will pop up in a new window. Quick and easy.
If you apply this effect to a video, a window will play
for a bit, freeze and a new window will open and play.
It may look a bit suspect in the preview pane, but I
think it should render correctly, although no guarantees.
It could be modified for sequences, number of windows,
and open/close behavior.

It works great with vids. I couldn't get the first one to work though, but I think it was the size of my images were not consistent. Version 2 only struggled a little in the preview. But it did render out really well. Here is what I made, and also reversed it with rehan's script. Great stuff.

Cool. And I am glad to see it works as advertised.
It pushes PIP+ a little beyond what's intended, so
it's a bit touchy.

If you are using a single video clip, it doesn't matter.
It will build squares from different point's in the clip.
If you are trying to pre-build a video of 9 photos,
then yes... each photo should have the same length.

ok...so for example i have a 9 sec. single video clip.

will it divide it self and show a clip one sec at a time?or does the effect have its own time limit to show a clip on a single winow?

It will show the clip in one square for 1/9 of the length, jump to the
next square, play the clip there for 1/9 of the length, jump again...
etc. etc.
It has no time limit, but it may react strange if the clip is very short.
