fayfen flag colour change...
Posted: 13 Oct 2013 12:35 PM
Hi,

i'm wondering how to find out the 'code number' to change the colour of a fayfen flag transition.

i'm looking to make this canada flag transition into an autumn leaf orange, and also a dark green colour - is there a list or, or other way to look up the number for a given colour please ?

here's the section of the xml -

<Transition name="Canada" iconid="15">
<Param name="MaskName" value="C:\Program Files (x86)\Movie Maker 2.6\Shared\AddOnTFX\fayfen\canda.png" />
<Param name="BorderColor" value="0xEA0000" />
<Param name="BorderSoftness" value="100" />
<Param name="BorderWidth" value="10" />
</Transition>

i'm thinking the ' 0xEA0000 ' bit makes it red...

any info appreciated,

steve

The border color used on the edge of the gradient wipe is defined by the RGB hexadecimal color code.

The color code is broken in to 3 parts for RR (red), GG (green) and BB (blue).
0xRRGGBB

Each color code goes from 00 to FF (0 to 255 decimal).

Red: EA hex = 234 decimal (about 92% red)
Green: 00 hex = 0 decimal (0% green)
Blue: 00 hex = 0 decimal (0% blue)

A standard HTML Color Picker can get you the code for other colors. For example, you might pick an orange color like #FF6600 --> 0xFF6600 or a dark green like #006600 --> 0x006600.
