Scan lines and Wavy Distortion
Posted: 23 Oct 2005 02:41 AM
I'm not sure where you might want to use these effects

I call the first effect "Scan Lines" good for simulating a TV picture and the second "Wavy Distortion" which might be good for a dream sequence or something:

Here's the XML. Copy this to Notepad and save it as C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared\AddOnTFX\wavyfx.xml then restart WMM:
<TransitionsAndEffects Version="1.0">
<Effects>
<EffectDLL guid="{ADC6CB88-424C-11D2-952A-00C04FA34F05}" >
<Effect name="Wavy Distortion" iconid="6" comment="DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Wave">
<Param name="Add" value="false"/>
<Param name="LightStrength" value="40"/>
<Param name="Phase" value="0"/>
<Param name="Strength" value="5"/>
<Param name="Freq" value="3"/>
</Effect>
<Effect name="Scan Lines" iconid="6" comment="DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Wave">
<Param name="Add" value="false"/>
<Param name="LightStrength" value="40"/>
<Param name="Phase" value="0"/>
<Param name="Strength" value="0"/>
<Param name="Freq" value="20"/>
</Effect>
</EffectDLL>
</Effects>
</TransitionsAndEffects>

The wavy lines would look good in a dream sequence, possibly coupled with a blurry border and transition. Nice effect (and nicely presented) - I didn't know that kind of thing was possible.

I was just playing with the Visual Filters and Transitions and found 'Wave'. If you click the 'Show Me' button, you can actually change some of the values to see what you get.

I looked in my registry under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, found 'DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Wave' and under that found the CLSID.

Is this wave effect supposed to make your photo an animated wave?

No, it is a static effect that just makes it distorted, but without animation.

Shouldn't it be PIP because you can see the edge of the video screen?

(When contacted for a reply Microsoft said,) "........ MIcrosoft does not comment on such rumours...."

I just tossed these effects out there. If you want to zoom the picture in slightly so you don't see the wavy edges, go for it! But of course, that would be a separate effect.

I don't have the sample video anymore, but if you download the XML and follow the steps, you can try it on your own video.

ahh is there any way to animate it or maybe make more of the wavy distortions with different ammounts of distortion and then put each affects really close and fast to each other to make it animated kinda?

its cool.. but not really like the tv effect i saw where its animated.

Does this .xml work for Windows Vista and Movie Maker 6? I followed the steps and the effect didn't show up in my movie maker at all. Which is weird, because every other .xml effect I've added so far has worked. Can you tell me how to fix it, or maybe post it as a download instead? Thanks!

is there anyway
that you can seperate the wavy disortion from the scan lines ?

and is there a way that you can let the wavy disortions move so it really waves ?
cause I've been searching for that kind of effect for like.. all eternity xD
