Adjusting tint (Or something close)
Posted: 04 Jan 2005 08:54 PM
I was wondering if there was any way to adjsut tint in Windows Movie Maker, or if not, what you would create in an XML to have a similar effect. I have video filmed on two different cameras, and want to make the color look similar for both.

Well, I don't have an answer...but I'll be curious to
see what responses you get. I have thought about buying
a 2nd camcorder, and the issue of merging video from
two dissimilar cameras had occured to me.

Not sure if this answers your request or not, but I've played around with some color enhancement variation and have come up with my own XML file (as listed below) that applies extra color boost to a video clip - this may resolve the tint problem somewhat.

I've discovered that I can use color names associated with values, i.e. Red=.1 (which means add 10% more red to the clip). You can use others too - blue, yellow, green, etc.

Copy and paste the following into your own XML file (call it something like ColorFilter.xml) and save into AddOnTFX folder under Program Files/Movie Maker...

<TransitionsAndEffects Version="1.0" >
<Effects>
<EffectDLL guid="{B4DC8DD9-2CC1-4081-9B2B-20D7030234EF}">
<Effect name="Color Filter, Red 10%" iconid="20" comment="Red 10%">
<Param name="InternalName" value="Standard" />
<Param name="Desaturate" value="false" />
<Param name="Red" value=".1" />
<Param name="contrast" value="1.0" />
</Effect>
<Effect name="Color Filter, Green 10%" iconid="20" comment="Green 10%">
<Param name="InternalName" value="Standard" />
<Param name="Desaturate" value="false" />
<Param name="Green" value=".1" />
<Param name="contrast" value="1.0" />
</Effect>
<Effect name="Color Filter, Blue 10%" iconid="20" comment="Blue 10%">
<Param name="InternalName" value="Standard" />
<Param name="Desaturate" value="false" />
<Param name="Blue" value=".1" />
<Param name="contrast" value="1.0" />
</Effect>
</EffectDLL>
</Effects>
</TransitionsAndEffects>

This is a short version of my own xml file, as my full version has different combinations of colors and percentage levels. By adjusting (or adding more lines in the XML file) you could build up a range of color enhancement levels, for say red, for 5%, 10%, 15%, 20% etc, by using the value parameter (values from 0 for 0% through to 1 for 100%). A param name of Red with a value of .3 represents 30% more red added. Looks great on sunset photos!!!

And combinations of colors can be added to under one effect - why not make up a movie color enhancement effect?

Help this helps...
