sorry its a plug in. I just loaded it up if that's what he or she is talking about
3rd party software cannot extract the codes (boo hoo) the other two third parties 2nd one has the same barn doors and the last one nothing
so if this is what the person is asking for he or she will tell us

sure looks like something that could be done as a custom transition

I for one would be interested in using it if anyone can work it out

As requested, here is a 'Barn Doors' transition for WMM:

First you need to download this gradient image and save it in C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared\AddOnTFX as barndoorsqp4.png

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

<TransitionsAndEffects Version="1.0">
<Transitions>
<TransitionDLL guid="{DE75D012-7A65-11D2-8CEA-00A0C9441E20}" comment="DxtJpeg/SMPTE wipes">
<Transition name="Barn Doors" iconid="51" comment="Barn Door Wipe, Post 56668">
<Param name="MaskName" value="C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared\AddOnTFX\barndoorsqp4.png" />
</Transition>
</TransitionDLL>
</Transitions>
</TransitionsAndEffects>


Then restart WMM and you'll have a new transition called 'Barn Doors'

I'm not completely satisfied with my gradient. There are some slight discontinuities if you look really closely... but hopefully most people won't even notice.

Very Good ! ...I'm keeping that one.

To make it look more Barndoorish, try placing the transition inbetween a wood texture and your reveal pic. Just like this

"fool around with it now get some real barn doors"

Sorry Fish, I just read your post properly after I'd posted and noticed that you were several steps ahead of me in flexing the old grey matter:-) - Real barndoors would look even better !

OK I found a real live barn door so take a look at <moviemaker stuff> <titles> where I say

This one is "Variations on a Barn Door" and the code below is directly from Blaine's Transition called Barn Doors [you need to download the "gradient" called barndoors.png from Blaine]

What I have done is to use it [with a REAL Barn Door I found on Google] as part of start and end titles/credits. It starts with a basic "one line" title and I used the enter/exit from the sides one to mimic doors as an overlay for the image barn.png which you can save from below. The image and overlay are both 6 seconds, and the video clip is dragged back 3 seconds over the door. This allows doors to fully open with the title momentarily on the video but then appearing to follow the doors at each side.

Then at the end I do a simple fade from the video back to the door [1 sec] and then copy the title overlay [but change text to Credits]. Then Blaine's transition is used again to connect a standard end credit [2 secs drag back]

Blaine, how difficult to make the doors CLOSE?? - that would be better for the ending

In general, to reverse any gradient transition, just create its 'negative' image, so dark becomes light, and light becomes dark. It seems like that is what PapaJohn did, but I'm not positive (so I must be negative)Smiley

yup... that's what I did... using IrfanView.

I knew you could do it better, as you said there was some minor flaws in your positive... but I figured the reverse of a negative flaw might be a positive???? It worked close enough for me and Doc.

Ah! So I'm either a zero or I'm negative. Smiley

Blaine, not true anymore...Since Rehan did not say otherwise,
I think you can now be positive.

What the heck...I'm getting sucked in to this infernal barn door vortex thing once again. I've been playing with flash 8 and come up with my very first blue screen animation. Think "sliding doors" more than "barn doors"...ahem...

The blue screen animation was saved as an AVI clip and introduced in to MM2 using the almost infamous blue chroma key transition...The nice clean edges haven't rendered out to badly.

Here it is.

Blaine,

Your gradient image "barndoors.png" is no longer available at your 5/23/06 link (above). Where could I find that png image?

(I hate to say it but I did not save my transitions & effects where I did a system recovery a few days ago.)

Yes, I've noticed that Putfile likes to delete files after some time... very annoying. I've now loaded them on Imageshack, but it likes to change the filenames slightly. You will either need to rename the images, or edit the XML to match.

I updated the post to reflect the new name and the new link. Try again and let me know how you get on.

Blaine,

Thank you for reposting. It was a double reward for me. I only had the doors opening before. Now I have them opening and closing. Very good!
