Desperately seeking help!
Posted: 11 Feb 2006 02:35 PM
I'm using this code:

<TransitionsAndEffects Version="1.0">
<Effects>
<EffectDLL guid="{B4DC8DD9-2CC1-4081-9B2B-20D7030234EF}">
<Effect name="Upper Left" iconid="3">
<Param name="InternalName" value="Simple3D" />
<Param name="InitialScaleA" value="0.50" />
<Param name="ScaleA" value="0.50" />
<Param name="MoveA" value="left, up" />
<Param name="Progress" value="0.25" />
</Effect>
</EffectDLL>
</Effects>
</TransitionsAndEffects>

I need the video to be half the size and completely in the upper left corner of the screen. When I play with the values, the video is never entirely in the corner. It either leaves a small space or is perfectly against the left, but cuts off the top. I've been going at it for hours now and can't make it do what I want it to do. Can someone please help? Even if it's to recommend a different code or give me new values... anything, whatever it is. Please.

I think you would be better using two effects to get what you want. Try using this XML

<TransitionsAndEffects Version="1.0">
<Effects>
<EffectDLL guid="{B4DC8DD9-2CC1-4081-9B2B-20D7030234EF}">


<Effect name="Upper Left Part 1" iconid="1">
<Param name="InternalName" value="Simple3D" />
<Param name="InitialScaleA" value="0.50" />
<Param name="ScaleA" value="0.50" />
<Param name="MoveA" value="left" />
<Param name="Progress" value="0.33" />
</Effect>

<Effect name="Upper Left Part 2" iconid="1">
<Param name="InternalName" value="Simple3D" />
<Param name="MoveA" value="up" />
<Param name="Progress" value="0.30" />
</Effect>
</EffectDLL>
</Effects>
</TransitionsAndEffects>

Part 1 will make your video half size and move it to the far left.
Part 2 then move it up to the top.
Make sure you apply the effects in the right order.

This works in the preview but I haven't tried it in a rendered movie. Try it and let me know if the Progress value need to be changed for a finished movie.

Note that it is much easier to do this sort of placement with PIP Plus.
