color filters
Posted: 21 Jul 2006 01:46 AM
alright my next (possibly stupid question):
I have this XML that I got from the board, which is great:

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

<Effect name="Filter - blue" iconid="20" comment="Blue Filter">
<Param name="InternalName" value="standard" />
<Param name="Desaturate" value="true" />
<Param name="Blue" value="0.8" />
</Effect>

<Effect name="Filter - green" iconid="20" comment="Green Filter">
<Param name="InternalName" value="standard" />
<Param name="Desaturate" value="true" />
<Param name="Green" value="0.8" />
</Effect>

<Effect name="Filter - orange" iconid="20" comment="Orange Filter">
<Param name="InternalName" value="Standard" />
<Param name="Desaturate" value="True" />
<Param name="Red" value="0.8" />
<Param name="Yellow" value="0.8" />
</Effect>

<Effect name="Filter - purple" iconid="20" comment="Purple Filter">
<Param name="InternalName" value="Standard" />
<Param name="Desaturate" value="True" />
<Param name="Red" value="0.8" />
<Param name="Blue" value="0.8" />
</Effect>

<Effect name="Filter - red" iconid="20" comment="Red Filter">
<Param name="InternalName" value="Standard" />
<Param name="Desaturate" value="true" />
<Param name="Red" value="0.8" />
</Effect>

<Effect name="Filter - yellow" iconid="20" comment="Yellow Filter">
<Param name="InternalName" value="Standard" />
<Param name="Desaturate" value="True" />
<Param name="Yellow" value="0.8" />
</Effect>
</EffectDLL>
</Effects>
</TransitionsAndEffects>



Is there a way to do a WHITE filter though?
I tried the "foggy edges" effects and it's not quite what I'm looking for here.
Appreciate any help the experts here can give

Is there any way that you can decrease the amount of color in these? Like...increase the transparency so that you can see the video clearer. Im really trying to make an effect to make scenes filmed in daytime look as if they are at dusk.

I'm no xml expert, so I don't know if it'll work or not...If I were to tinker a bit, I'd try changing the "0.8" value after the particular color and see what happened...I haven't tried it myself, but that's what I'd alter first...If ya try it before an xml expert offers insight, post back here your results so the rest of us "xml journeymen" will know also...

Thought...maybe add a param like this...<Param name="Transparency" value="25" />

I'd give it a go myself, but I've got other designs for this session that I'd like to get to...

thanx for the help, desilucy......
I put the 0.8 down to 0.4 and you can see a trastic difference,
so that's definitely the correct value to change

Just thought I'd make one more pass through 'my forums'...
I appreciate your follow up on my suggestion/tinker. Will make a note of it.

If you are attempting to do a night scene, there is one method here that I tried:
view post 60893

Of course, the full details are there. The trick is to film at a time when there is minimal light - I filmed the clip at noon, and as someone said, this could still pass off as a day shot. Filming in reduced lighting conditions such as dusk will achieve a much greater effect - so there is no definitive way to turn a day shot into a night shot at the click of a button - it's a calculated assessment of what needs to be accomplished.

Still, hope it helps, and if you achieve a better video than I did, post it for us all to wow at!
