world flags transitions !!!!!!
Posted: 19 Jul 2008 03:01 PM
Well,
after my success with the Israeli flag, Neophyte asked me to try and make few more.
I sat today all day, and come up with over 30 new world flags transitions (a bonus is included).
All continents included, all have a colored icon and preview. All for MM 2.1 XP

The ZIP file can be D/L from here:

http://ultrashare.net/hosting/fl/173e9480b8

So If you find it up to your standard please reply here.
And if it isn't up to your standard you must reply here...

Enjoy, Fayfen

Thanks for going to the time and effort to do that. I've downloaded the file and plan to include them in the FX Archive when we get to compiling the list of XP transitions.

I want to give an advice of your transitions:

On computers that aren't in english (like mine, it's in spanish) WMM's folder isn't on "C:\Program File" it's in other (like mine is in "C:\Archivos de programa") so when downloading this (and many other) images transitions you may edit the .xml file and change "c:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared\AddOnTFX\" to where your Movie Maker folder is. it's easy to change using a tool called "search and change" (I think that's the name) on notepad... so if once you experience trouble with image transitions change those stuff :)

Again, Thanks!!!

THANK YOU SOOOOOO MUCH
not especially for the flags but just for doing this
cause
because of you I can now make my own transitions =D
but question:

what is the "border color" code/value to get black ?
white is 0xFFFFFF

and if you want,, could you give me the values of every color ?
or could you tell me how I can figure those colors out myself ??

thanks in advance ^^

Good attempt. Some comments:
* group your transitions by giving them a prefix such as "Fayfen Flags: Brazil"
* Make the path to image files relative such as:
<Param name="MaskName" value="AddOnTFX\fayfen\lebanon.png"/>

Re: world flags transitions !!!!!!

Well I thought about the prefix and finely decide not to add it.
The reason is that a flag transition is useful within its content.
So if one needs for the Turkish or the USA flag it should be found ez by name.
Secondly, I find it more pleasing to have the colored icons scattered among the bluish MM ones.

I tried what U wrote on the relative path, but it isn't working with me.
it turned the XML file error.

How ever I did find a mistake in the file, a second "USA B" transition where it was to be a RED one.
So find at the bottom of the file the "USA B" transition, and replace it with this:

<Transition name="USA R" iconid="14">
<Param name="MaskName" value="c:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared\AddOnTFX\fayfen\usA.png"/>
<Param name="BorderColor" value="0xC40000"/>
<Param name="BorderSoftness" value="100"/>
<Param name="BorderWidth" value="10"/>

OK If this is a conscious decision.... but perhaps unlike you I have more than 300 transitions. Scattered ones are almost lost. However I can edit your XML file myself to arrange as I like... so not a big problem.

For the relative path I forgot it only works with titles. So yes you cant do that. This makes it difficult to make it compatible with other language/regional installation of xp.

FYI: For this reason on vista with ShaderTFX I allow using system macros such as %ProgramFiles% so that one can specify:
<Param name="MaskName" value="%ProgramFiles%\Movie Maker\Shared\AddOnTFX\fayfen\lebanon.png"/>

That transition is included in this installer along with a number of other transitions.

unfortunately the El Salvador flag has Coat of arms in the middle and this
will not convert good for the transition.

Mmmm...I see...

Well how about something like this :

http://i39.tinypic.com/ohu4ow.jpg

Doesn't necessarily have to be that image, but a circle with the letters ES inside and the glow being blue...would that work?
