Effect Wanted
Posted: 26 Nov 2005 02:21 PM
Does anyone have an effect that would allow you to have a still image on one half of the screen and video on the other half????

The only one that was close to what i was looking for was 'Split Vertical'

I had a photo on the right and video on the left side. Only problem is instead of squashing the video to fit on 50% of the screen it just missed out half of it!

You know the Title overlay effect thats already in Movie Maker called Video left???

The video is squashed to the left and credits to the right.

What i am looking for is just that exept instead of credit on the right I want to insert my own photo

Anyone got that effect?

Thanks..love this forum Thanks for helping!!!!!! Papa John you rock!!!

thanks Norman.... I know you can do it with a PIP transition. I'm thinking of the Editing > Video > Transitions page of my site... the PIP section toward the bottom.

... but maybe the Editing > the Persian Page has an easier way....

Its easily done by PIP Plus (install it first):

<TransitionsAndEffects Version="1.0" >
<Transitions>
<TransitionDLL guid="{4EF98DF5-794F-4fd3-8E77-559F82C8D10C}">
<Transition name="PIP+: Squashed Verical" iconid="0">
<Param name="RectA" value=" 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.5, 1.0;" />
<Param name="RectB" value=" 0.0, 0.5, 0.0, 0.5, 1.0;" />
</Transition>
</TransitionDLL>
</Transitions>
</TransitionsAndEffects>


Copy paste the xml code into notepad and Save As pp_squash.xml in folder C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared\AddOnTFX. Confirm the file has .xml extension by turning off the "hide extensions of known file types" from Explorer > Tools > Folder options > View. Restart WMM.

Because the video rectangles are static, this effect is covered in the freeware usage of PIP+.
