Try this xml: <TransitionsAndEffects Version="1.0"> <Effects> <EffectDLL guid="{E673DCF2-C316-4c6f-AA96-4E4DC6DC291E}" > <Effect name="Red Glow" iconid="13"> <Param name="EffectID" value="13" comment="Diffuese Glow" /> <Param name="Transparency" value="35" /> <Param name="RGBBackColor" value="red" /> </Effect> </EffectDLL> </Effects> </TransitionsAndEffects> You can replace the RGBBackColor with any other color name or a #RRGGBB Color Value.

I noticed that there were a whole lot of different transitions, but that's just Lucas's style. He's always been one to make the movie good in the editing room. Also, with this connecting the old and new trilogies, they are tryign to mimic the original transitions in A New Hope

Copy the text into notepad and save it as a .xml in this folder: C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared\AddOnTFX When you open movie maker, Greenscreen should appear as a transition in the transition folder. Now, in your timeline you put your background picture first, and your foreground picture right after it. Then you drag the greenscreen transition between them, and stretch it to the length of both clips. It merges the two, but it is not perfect.

This effect acts as a green screen: <TransitionsAndEffects Version="1.0"> <Transitions> <TransitionDLL guid="{C5B19592-145E-11D3-9F04-006008039E37}" > <Transition name="Greenscreen" iconid="11"> <Param name="KeyType" value="0" /> <Param name="RGB" value="0x00FF00" /> </Transition> </TransitionDLL> </Transitions> </TransitionsAndEffects> Put your background first, your fore ground second, and drag this transition between them. Then you stretch it to the length of both clips.

Also, if none of this works, you can use a program to record the Wave our Mix of your clip and save as a seperate sound file. To do this in MM: Go to Narrate Timeline or click teh microphone icon For audio input source, select 'Wave Out Mix" Open up windows media player and open your video clip that you want the audio from Start reconding in MM Press play in WMP and wail until your clip is over. Then stop both programs and save as .wma.

Are you draging the video into the pane that says "Audio" and is undr "Transition" or the one that says "Audio/music" which is right under the one that says audio? If you are draging it into the first one, you should be dragging in into the one marked "Audio Music"

I've been reading this, and I'm still kind of confused, but I'm wondering if you can use any of the other features on the "Microsoft Visual Filters and Transitions Reference " site in Movie Maker. I tried to use some of the other function numebrs, but with no luck. I'm especially wondering if you can use the composoting feature like a "background remover" effect that has been suggested before.

Re: Nuke white light on blue screen....attn Bigfish and Dlk 5/15/2005 11:08:59 PM   (Total replies: 1)
I tried the following xmls, one only showed a black screen, and one only showed one of the pictures that I tried to merge with the transitions. It is possibly that I don't fully understand teh compositing. <TransitionsAndEffects Version="1.0"> <Transitions> <TransitionDLL guid="{9A43A844-0831-11D1-817F-0000F87557DB}" > <Transition name="Comp 1" iconid="0" comment="DXCOMPFUNC_B_ADD_A"> <Param name="Function" value="22" /> </Transition> <Transition name="Comp 2" iconid="0" ...

if you want something similar to a camera flash,slpit your video so that you have a clip as along asd you want the flash (probably 1/4 second) On that small clip, increase the brightness as much as you want to. It will appear that the video flashes for the small selected clip.
