Re: Help? Effects won't work 12/24/2009 11:15:53 AM   (Total replies: 1)
After reading this thread a bit, Maybe catlvr2 has version 2.6 of MovieMaker. If so, these XMLs won't work. Also, if there is an x86 folder, it probably is a Vista 64 bit, and if catlvr is using the 6.0 MM, then the ShaderTFX must be the 64 bit version. In the About Dialog there would be either: Windows r Movie Maker Version 6.0.xxxxx (Vista where the XML should have Version="2.8") Windows r Movie Maker Version 2.6.xxxxx (Old XP Version where the XML should have ...

Tried Rehan's new installer. No joy yet for me. Got the DLL not registered message as I did on the previous two versions. regsvr32 also fails to register the DLL. Have not tried MMK's solution yet. Vista Home Premium. One user as administrator. HP AMD dual processor. 2 GB mem. nVidia dedicated graphics. MM 2.6 installed (if that makes any difference). Good luck. I'm looking forward to these capabilities on Vista. I second MMK's vote for colored transition boundaries like MM 2.1 ...

Sistersalways, Green Chroma means that during the transition the green portion is transparent and you can see the other pic. Here is an example. --Download the pic below --Place it on the timeline, followed by another pic or video. --Overlap the two to get a fade transition --Replace the fade transition with a Green Chroma A 0.x transition --The B pic (the 2nd) should show through the A pic (the first) during the transition where the A pic is green. <a ...

I noticed that Rehan implemented the Point function. Try this you Rehan Transitions Pack Beta testers. Add to rehanfx_pip.xml. Lotsa fun in this Addon pack. <Transition name="RehanFX PIP: A B middle zoom inout DPL" iconid="16" guid="RehanFX PIP A B middle zoom inout dpl" ShaderModel="2"> <Param name="ShaderFilename" value="Shader.fx"/> <Param name="Technique" value="PipTransition"/> <Semantics> <RectA ...

Wish list for Rehan. I have continued to use 2.6 mostly, because of the PIP+ functions. I hope more of those will be included in this 6.0 effort because I like a lot of MM 6.0. Especially the mixing of aspect ratios. I also want Blaine's comp A plus B. These will make me a mostly 6.0 user. :-D 1. Effects - I use them to shrink a video/pic, add a PNG frame, then shrink again to provide for TV overscan on DVDs. 2. Effect - Moving Logos. 3. Effect - Love the heartbeat one. 4. ...

Wonderbar Rehan. Followed instructions above and it installed perfectly. Self effects and self transitions worked great with colored borders. Good idea. Also, the border parameters worked on gradient transitions. e.g. <Transition name="RehanFX Wipe circling.png DPL yellow" iconid="3" guid="RehanFX SMPTE circling.png DPL yellow" ShaderModel="2"> <Param name="ShaderFilename" value="Shader.fx"/> <Param name="Technique" value="SMPTEWipeTechnique"/> <Param name="TextureFile" ...

For you beta testers, try adding this to rehanfx_pip.xml I'v always liked the Heartbeat effect from Rehan's PIP+. This transition kinda does that. Add 2 of the same photo to the timeline, overlap them and use this transition. Gives 5 "Heartbeats" during the transition. Use about 4-6 sec of overlap. <Transition name="RehanFX PIP: DPL Heartbeat" iconid="16" guid="RehanFX PIP dpl Heartbeat" ShaderModel="2"> <Param name="ShaderFilename" value="Shader.fx"/> ...

Re: Chroma transitions 8/23/2007 12:59:21 PM   (Total replies: 1)
Rehan, as you are considering your final package, please consider this: I put frames around almost everything with PIP+. It especially looks nice with PhotoStory (Ken Burns Effect) slideshows. In MM2.1 and MM2.6 I use these next 2 effects. (Blaine's PhotoAlbum.png as an example) This way I can get the frame constant with any effects before it. e.g. pan/zoom etc. Also, I can concurrently use frames and Titling with just one rendering pass, which saves me time and keeps quality. Here ...

Bingo Rehan. It works wonderfully. I can say goodbye to 2.6. You are a Genie! What comes out of the bottle next? :-D PatrickL
