new zoom out xml?
Posted: 29 Jun 2005 02:52 PM
Just wondering if anyone has made an xml variation of zoom out where the title fades completely into the distance (ala the main Star Wars title) instead of in the middle then fading. I know there are programs to edit the existing xml but I'm not really handy at such things so if anyone has made a seperate zoom out xml that I can copy and paste, I'd appreciate it.

Hi. Thanks, yes I saw that thread but thats for zoom in. I need zoom out. Is it a matter of swapping the values in the zoom in?

At the bottom of that post I mentioned that if you swap two values in the file (EntranceZoom and ExitZoom), you'll get the reverse effect. The posted XML has EntranceZoom small and ExitZoom big so it will zoom in. If you make EntranceZoom big and ExitZoom small (e.g. swap the values) it will zoom out from big down to tiny. Or play with the values to get the exact effect you want. Be sure to restart WMM between changes to the XML file.

Sorry, should have been more explicit about that.

Hi. I did swap the values you mentioned and I also played around with other values a bit to get the effect I was looking for.
Thanks again!

Care to post your resulting XML so others that might want to do this in the future will know values that work well?

Ok, just remember I'm new at this and really played with values and I think I even deleted a couple of lines of code but here it is:

<TransitionsAndEffects Version="1.0">
<Titles>
<TitleDLL guid="{353359C1-39E1-491b-9951-464FD8AB071C}">
<Title name="zoom out further" iconid="13" comment="http://www.windowsmoviemakers.net/Forums/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=17995">
<Param name="InternalName" value="TitleStandard" />
<Param name="Description" value="Zooms In further" />
<Paragraph>
<Param name="EntranceDuration" value="1.0" />
<Param name="ExitDuration" value="18.0" />
<Param name="EntranceZoom" value="1.5 1.5" />
<Param name="ExitZoom" value="0.05 0.05" />
<Param name="ShadowOutline" value="Shadow" />
</Paragraph>
</Title>
</TitleDLL>
</Titles>

Its basically created specifically for the one title I'm working on so I hope its useful to the community. Any suggestions on ways to fix it would be appreciated.

</TransitionsAndEffects>
