camera effect please!
Posted: 08 Sep 2005 11:32 AM
does anyone know the effect that makes the clip have a border like a camera? eg. with a rec. sign on the screen?
also, does anyone know a xml for a shake effect that shakes more than the usual one?
thanks!!!:)

The camera overlay can be done with a title overlay or PIP Plus ;)(if I have time later I will try and come up with a version) and the xml for the shake effect is this (credit of course to the the programmer know-it-alls on this one ;):

<TransitionsAndEffects Version="1.0">
<Effects>
<EffectDLL guid="{ADEADEB8-E54B-11d1-9A72-0000F875EADE}">
<Effect name="shake" iconid="31" comment="shake film">
<Param name="FilmJerkiness" value="255" />
</Effect>
</EffectDLL>
</Effects>
</TransitionsAndEffects>


In case you need help or are new to the xml process click the link in my signature and go to chapter one for video and written tutorials :)!

Hurray I can help you :)! I sat down and opened up photoshop and put together a basic REC screen and wrote a PIP+ xml. First of all you need to download the demo version or purchase Rehan's PIP+ at this link (don't worry about when the demo expires it still lets you keep static effects such as borders or repositioning your video on the screen). The next is of course the xml process which as I said all is explained in the link on my signature so definetely read or watch that first if you are new to xml programming.

Next click on this link to get the picture you are going to need you can save it by right clicking and selecting Save Picture As and then save it in your new AddOnTFX folder (C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared\AddOnTFX) under the name "rec.png" .

Copy this xml code and paste in Notepad and save it in the same AddOnTFX folder under the name it rec.xml:

<TransitionsAndEffects Version="1.0" SpecialIconFileID="1033" SpecialIconResourceID="101">
<Effects>
<EffectDLL guid="{0BEDE179-3361-4eea-9058-11CBB1739D50}">
<Effect name="PIP Plus: Rec Screen" iconid="0">
<Param name="RectA" value=" 0.0, 0.0,0.0,1.0,1.0 ;
0.5, 0.3,0.5,0.25,0.25;
1.0, 0.0,0.0,1.0,1.0" />
<Param name="Background" value="0xAA00BB" />
<Param name="BorderA" value="C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared\AddOnTFX\rec.png" />
</Effect>
</EffectDLL>
</Effects>
</TransitionsAndEffects>


That's the whole kit and kaboodle for ya enjoy :)!

Persian Poet Gal,

Not to be a "know it all", but I don't think that effect
does what you intend...or at least I don't understand
the need to shrink the window, or the purple background.
I could be wrong, but I think you just want this.

<TransitionsAndEffects Version="1.0" SpecialIconFileID="1033" SpecialIconResourceID="101">
<Effects>
<EffectDLL guid="{0BEDE179-3361-4eea-9058-11CBB1739D50}">
<Effect name="PIP Plus: Rec Screen" iconid="0">
<Param name="RectA" value=" 0.0, 0.0,0.0,1.0,1.0" />
<Param name="BorderA" value="C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared\AddOnTFX\rec.png" />
</Effect>
</EffectDLL>
</Effects>
</TransitionsAndEffects>

^Yes I mistankenly added unnecessary lines from Rehan's handy work so yes my mistake :P. But I tested the effect and it worked just fine fortunately ;). Thanks for pointing it out.

Persian, it would seem you only have the freeware/trial version. In trial version, after the trial period expires, the PIP+ resorts to freeware use of non-animating effects and transitions.

^Yes again my absent mindedness at times gets the best of me :P.....and as far as the effect I can see you're absolutely correct now that I've researched what was up and down so to speak. I must admit my experience with xml is a few months worth so I am still diligently applying myself and not a relaxed master just yet lol. Thanks as always to you seasoned pros I'm glad at least this person can actually use and enjoy this new effect and helping me to remember my xml abcs lol ;)......

This is perfect for what ive been looking for, thanks for the code.
I was however wondering if i could animate the recording light so that it flashed, i know nothing of XML so correct me if im wrong but could you have 2 seperate images (one with an unlit dot and another with a lit one) and alternate between the two with say a 1 second interval?

Did you install the PIP+ main plug-in from Rehan's website (www.rehanfx.org)?

First, what files are in your AddOnTFX folder right now? What icons are on your .xml files?

Do you even see this effect listed in your 'Video Effects' folder? Or do you not see it at all? And which one did you copy? The first one, or the corrected one?

And do any of the PIP+ effects work? You do see icons for them, right?

Hey guys
I installed every thing.... I can see that effect in Windos Movie Maker...
But the problem now is, When I activate that effect on the clip. It doesnt stable there like its suppose to go well with the whole video.
But it goes zoom in and out during the clip...
I dont want it to work it like that.
I want it to stable and hold there....

HELPPPPPP BROTHERS :(

Be sure to copy the *third* version in this thread, the one from DLK, not the first or second. That one is fixed without movement.

<TransitionsAndEffects Version="1.0" SpecialIconFileID="1033" SpecialIconResourceID="101">
<Effects>
<EffectDLL guid="{0BEDE179-3361-4eea-9058-11CBB1739D50}">
<Effect name="PIP Plus: Rec Screen" iconid="0">
<Param name="RectA" value=" 0.0, 0.0,0.0,1.0,1.0" />
<Param name="BorderA" value="C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared\AddOnTFX\rec.png" />
</Effect>
</EffectDLL>

I got this working just fine and wanted to change the picture overlay. I was able to do that by changing the xml code and making a picture. I did so using photoshop with a hole in the middle, but the quality of the picture is distorted. How do I save the picture overlay?

.png is what i used, but i used no special values on the .png. Should I have?

Also, the forum's search function isn't showing results. Could you please lead me to a post where I can shrink the video into maybe 25% of its size and place it in the center? Thank you.

Search is working fine... you have to actually 'click' the button with your mouse though; it doesn't work by pressing <Enter>.

As for the image, you want it to match the ratio of your screen (usual 4:3), so pick an image size like 800 x 600. The quality of the result is determined by the size and quality of this image. Also, be sure you have transparency in the parts where you want the video to show through.

OK, I am having problems with this. I have been to Rehan's site and bought the PIP Plus so there's no expiry problems. It has installed OK. I am using WMM version 2.1 with XP Pro with SP2.
In my ADDOnTFX folder I have the "rec.png" image and the "rec.xml" (third version from the above thread) files and when I go into WMM I can see the "PIP Plus: Rec Screen" effect in the Video Effects. All sounds good right?
Wrong - when I go to add it to a clip in my movie, nothing happens - at all. The clip shows the effect has been added but when you play it back nothing happens at all.
Any idea what I am doing wrong guys?
Would really appreciate the help.
Thanks,
Charlie
