You need to overlap the clips more so that the "transition" is for most of the length of the clip. You won't be able to overlap them completely, but if you zoom in you can do an overlap except for a few frames.

I was able to to do the overlap but the frames were cut in half. How do you decrease the frame size by 50% to fit in the split screen?

thanks

That's the nature of the SPLIT screen effects... it's the halfway point of a transition where half of each clip is being shown.

Maybe you want something like this (view post 56095) instead? Or did you want it shrunk vertically too?

Are you on XP or Vista? When you run Windows Movie Maker, click on 'Help' > 'About'. What does it show?

the custom transitions and effects packages are different for XP and Vista... your thinking is probably good.

It should be fairly simple to put together a split screen transition for Vista... when I get some free time I can bang it out.

I had included a vertical split screen with centres adjusted in my ShaderTFX for Vista.

Now you can have all the split effects...

RehanFX SPLIT transitions for Windows Movie Maker v6.0 (Vista) based on ShaderTFX 'technology'.

It uses a mask image to define the split pattern so is freely extendable by your custom masks. A mask is a greyscale image such as these: Split Mask Images. The black area in the mask image is where image A is shown while the white area is where B is shown. Any gray value means blend of A and B. (lerp(A,B,mask))

Enjoy...

Drat... Rehan's beating me to everything... and doing it better anyway.Smiley I'm adding it to the pinned post (view post 126998)

Incidentally, since I have Vista on my V:\ drive (dual boot with XP on C:\) the installer got confused and put the files on C:\

Sorry for over running you Blaine! All these are things I had tried earlier on for testing purpose but didnt finish them properly unless it got asked for here...

But with Vista I am sure one can never run out of more ideas to try ...

Thanks for informing about the installer. I will fix it asap.

Here is another potential design point for BW/Color mixing effects.
-- Honor full gradient of overlay gradient mask ala' Rehan's Gradient transitions
-- Honor varying with time (or optional progress parameter for split freezing/moving)
-- Optional colored border at the transition boundary

Here is a sample from hacking rehan_overlay.fx:
BWtoClr Sample -- Requires the Rehan ShaderTFX stuff.

This fx stuff is fun. Wish I knew more about it.

Thanks guys.

Sure I'll share. Rehan's release package is coming soon. I think I'll wait to see it to make sure it's still OK, and to see if Rehan already has this stuff covered. He probably does, but even betterSmiley If this still looks useful, and I can clean it up a bit, out it comes.

is this supposed to be the same thing as the "cloning" transition, because thats what I thought, I'm probably wrong, but all I see is my two videos slightly transparent, and I'm able to see one behind the other.

now I just feel really bad about triple posting, but I just tried it and it does the exact same thing as fading, it doesn't split it down the middle. Sorry about that

Rehan has a 'split video' pack for XP, and another for Vista. The Vista version requires a registered version of 'ShaderTFX'. If you downloaded that and it expired, then you won't be able to do the split video anymore.

Hi Blaine... After the trial period expires ShaderTFX should continue to work for vertical split transition that accompanies the main plugin package. The only limitation in place for unregistered version after the trial is for externally loaded images. Unfortunately the full Split Package used external images so doesn't work.

Anyway all these should work in freeware mode:

* Chroma Bluescreen/greenscreen transitions
* Cube rotate transitions
* Moving or static PIPs transitions (including Vertical Split)
* Self gradient transitions

etc and most of the effects.

You should be able to test the freeware behavior by temporarily renaming the registry key: HKLM\SOFTWARE\RehanFX\ShaderTFX to something like HKLM\SOFTWARE\RehanFX\ShaderTFX_

Re: Split Screen Effect

I need to do something sort of complicated. I don't know if its possible. Please let me know if there anyway to do it and how, if possible.

I have three different short video segments.

They're all about 10 seconds long. I want the first one to play full screen, and loop. After about 15 seconds the 2nd video would come in from the right and push the first video into half of the screen (E.G. split screen) - both videos would be playing together and looping. about 20 seconds later, the third video would come in and push the two over and take up 1/3rd of the screen on teh right and would loop. All three videos would be playing at the same time, looping, each taking up 1/3rd of the screen at the end.

This is urgent and any help on the topic is really appreciated.

Thanks!

i think rehanfx is a good program but it doesnt allow you to interact with the other yourself, i want to be able to talk at the same time and fight and hi-five and stupid stuff like that. is there a program that allows you to do stuff like that? if so can you please direct me to it?
