This "hidden" filter effects -- any info? Here's a file...
Posted: 08 Nov 2003 11:09 PM
Looking at this page:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dnwmt/html/moviemakersfx.asp

It's apparent that many of the "Filter" effects are in the COM DLL, but they are not exposed in Movie Maker 2. Adding this XML file will expose them.

However, I left all of the params at default values:
Control1Value
...
Control8Value
Transparency
RGBForeColor
RGBBackColor
RGBExtraColor
TextureURL

The default values result in no output for some of the effects (example: ColoredPencil). Some effects like Chrome look good with Transparency turned on to 50% or so.

I've looked all over the web for information about the Control1Value...Control8Value for each of the 48 effects, with no luck. Does anyone have any info on what each control effects for each EffectID? For example, I'm pretty sure one of the ControlXValue will allow you to select a different mask for the HalftoneScreen effect. Also, I'd really like to get NeonGlow and DiffuseGlow to work.

Anyway, if this is duplicate information, please forgive... just point me in the right direction. Surely I'm not the first one to notice that these hidden effects are just waiting there, untapped.



BTW, just put this file C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\1033\AddOnTFX and stop/restart MM2.

BTW,

Looking at how these effects are organized and how the effects can be tweaked/configured via the XML file, it seems clear that MS plans to expose controls in the GUI to tweak each effect...

Can anyone confirm that is planned in MM3?

This is, imho, the main weakness on MM2 -- the effects and transitions can only be tweaked via this XML file instead of in situ while editing a movie.

See tip #13 on the SimlyDV.com MM2 forum. Also see the Editing... Video... Transitions and Effects pages of my website - for some discussion about custom effects and transitions, and a few examples of achieving a Picture-in-Picture effect using transparency.
