This PIP+ transition might get you close to the ripple
You need to transition the clip with itself, and make
sure they overlay exactly in sync, which is a whole other topic
(clip a few frames off the end of the 1st and the start of the 2nd).
This will give you 1 echo. Run the output through a 2nd pass
with the original and you can get a 2nd echo.

<TransitionsAndEffects Version="1.0" SpecialIconFileID="1033" SpecialIconResourceID="101">
<Transitions>
<TransitionDLL guid="{4EF98DF5-794F-4fd3-8E77-559F82C8D10C}">
<Transition name="PIP+ echo in" iconid="0">
<Param name="RectA" value=" 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 1.0, 1.0, 0.0, 1.0;
1.0, 0.0, 0.0, 1.0, 1.0, 0.0, 1.0;"
/>
<Param name="Rectb" value=" 0.0, -0.05, -0.05, 1.1, 1.1, 1.0, 0.5;
1.0, -0.05, -0.05, 1.1, 1.1, 1.0, 0.5;"
/>
</Transition>
</TransitionDLL>
</Transitions>
</TransitionsAndEffects>

You need PIP+ installed. Copy into notepad, and save as an XML file into
C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared\AddOnTFX


hope this helps

For PIP+...check out Rehan's site
www.rehanfx.com
There is a free demo, and it is very reasonable priced.
I am not sure my idea will satisfy your needs,
although it can't hurt to try it. If these effects are
something you picked off TV, you are trying to compete
with some very sophisticated(and expensive) video software.
It may not be doable.

I still haven't got an answer for your second effect, but the MetaCreation transitions included a couple ripple effects. Check out Rehan's website under MetaCreations transitions. They don't require you to purchase his PIP+ effects, but if you want more information on them, they are there too.

Well, he calls it a "ripple" effect, but I thought it was more
of an echo..((())). Since the Metacreations are transitions,
I am not sure what he would transition it with, and I think it
distorts the shapes of heads and things, but it might be worth a try.
It's also possible I have it wrong, and was sending him down
the garden path. Never hurts to approach it from different angles.

Actually, I haven't had a chance to download the samples, so you are probably closer. I just went off of the names. Smiley

Here is an idea for the glowing ball.
I would think...if so many people are willing to use an
outside program to make a lightsaber fight, it is not
unreasonable to suggest you try LSMAKER for the glowing ball.
Here is a rough sample of what you can do...the camera man(my son)
wasn't impressed, and my wife says the dude taking the shot doesn't
rate NBA caliber. Well excuse me!

Here is the link that discusses LSMAKER

I think with a little effort...it could get you close.
