Need a Transition or effect that does the following...
Posted: 20 May 2006 07:49 PM
I need a transition or effect that makes the current clip that I'm running to go and fade out to the back, like the star wars logo at the opening of the movie, but I'm not asking for a text effect, I'm asking for a video effect to make a video zoom out or fade out to the back to let the next video clip come in. Any ideas?

Movie Maker has a fade to black option. Right Click the clip you wish to fade out to black at the end....then choose "Video Effects"....and select "fade to black."

Cuss, act rude... be ungrateful....go ahead, make my day!

He said fade to back not black.

I couldnt really understand what you need. Can you explain it a little?

Sorry...I did misread....sounds like he needs a transition that shrinks the image down to reveal the next one....or just to a black image.

Ok, when I say I want the clip to roll all the way back it means the same as shrinking the video in the middle of the screen as if it where going back. Example, look at your computer screen an imagine that it goes all the way back, like when you die and see the tunnel of light but then you revive and see the tunnel go away from you, smaller and smaller, farther and farther away...I dont think I can explain better han that. Let me know.

Sample video:
Zoom In & Out Effects

Assuming that is what you are looking for, here's a couple of effects that will do just that. First make sure you have a C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared\AddOnTFX folder, if not, create it.

Next, copy/paste the following code into Notepad (not Wordpad) and save as zoominout.xml in the C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared\AddOnTFX folder.

<TransitionsAndEffects Version="1.0">
<Effects>
<EffectDLL guid="{B4DC8DD9-2CC1-4081-9B2B-20D7030234EF}">
<Effect name="Zoom In (Toward)" iconid="34" comment="Zoom toward the camera">
<Param name="InternalName" value="Simple3D" />
<Param name="InitialScaleA" value="0.01" />
<Param name="ScaleA" value="1.0" />
<Param name="ExponentialProgressDuration" value="0.001" />
</Effect>
<Effect name="Zoom Out (Away)" iconid="33" comment="Zoom away from the camera">
<Param name="InternalName" value="Simple3D" />
<Param name="ScaleA" value="smaller" />
<Param name="ExponentialProgressDuration" value="0.001" />
</Effect>
</EffectDLL>
</Effects>
</TransitionsAndEffects>


Restart WMM and you'll have two new effects called:
Zoom In (Toward)
Zoom Out (Away)

Apply the effect to your picture (or video) and it will either zoom away to the distance, or zoom in from the distance. You could use these in succession with your pictures to have one zoom away and have the new picture zoom back in.

Note, the effect applies to the whole clip, so if you only want it to zoom away at the end, make a split and apply the effect only to the last part (or first part as the case may be). The longer the clip, the longer the duration. And the shorter the clip... well, you can figure it out.
