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 ...

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

I've been playing with Rehan's Overlay effect. I noticed that the overlay image snuggles up to the source image no matter it's aspect ratio. Portrait, landscape, or odd aspect ratio in either 4:3 or 16:9 project aspect ratio. (Neato!!!) Perfect for Blaine's PhotoAlbum image as the Corner Mounters are always exactly on the corners of the source image for all sizes and shapes of image. For more conventional frame overlays though, it would be nice if the overlay snuggled up to the exterior ...

Still enjoying playing with frames and logos with Rehan's overlay code. I put together a package with 40+ frames, the shrink effects, a moving logo example and heartbeat using rehan's rehanfx_overlay.fx from above. See a few in <a href="http://media.putfile.com/DPL-Frames-fx-Example---rehanFX">Frame Effects Sample</a> Many of the frames are reworked from Danielle's frames and also included is the PhotoAlbum frame by Blaine. These are all effects, so they can be stacked (up to 6?), and ...

The TX5 installer worked correctly for me. All your transitions and effects behave as before. I did uninstall the previous version through the control panel, and installed without running as administrator as I am the only user on my PC (with administrative privileges). Good work. This is really useful to me. PatrickL

I tried out the rehanfx_overlay.fx overlay code. Full size frames and heartbeat in DPL Frames Effects above worked out fine. However, the moving logo effect had the strange attribute of 6 extra copies of the logo above the specified logo. see the first 10 seconds of <a href="http://media.putfile.com/Rehan-FX5-fx-Demo1" > FX5 sample </a> <a href="http://media.putfile.com/DPL-Frames-fx-Example---rehanFX">Beta Sample</a> compared to <a ...

Whoops, bad link above. SB see the first 10 seconds of <a href="http://media.putfile.com/DPL-Frames-fx-Example---rehanFX">Beta Sample</a> compared to <a href="http://media.putfile.com/Rehan-FX5-fx-Demo1">FX5 Sample</a> PatrickL

Rehan, while hacking around in your rehanfx_overlay.fx code, I accidently discovered that the FX5 phantom logo images in the Moving Logo as noted above go away if the line <b>TexCoord.y >= rectB.y && </b> is changed to <b>TexCoord.y >= (rectB.y + 0.0001) && </b> I have no idea why (vertical tiling?). This is emperical, and the addend must be non-zero to work correctly, zero doesn't do it. The new package is great fun. Thanks for all your work and inventions! Would like to ...
