Re: [Pinned Post] CUSTOM TRANSITIONS, EFFECTS and TITLES (Read this First!) 9/4/2008 4:05:20 PM   (Total replies: 1)
OK, I am real novice here, so I really only truly understand only about 50% of what you are talking about. But, I think the situation described here to me won't work perfectly. Here's why: I need the logo to be a transition/progression through three logos: 2 product logos that we carry, and our company logo. Clearly, there is no 'stock' logo here that will work for this. I have each of the logos I want to use as clip-art on my PC, so will that help? I want it to fade in, and fade ...

Also, what does "pull up Vegas" mean?

No offense taken...I understand how delaing with true novices can be when you may be an expert at something. I am a tribologist (lubrication engineer) and I am constantly having to deal with so-called 'experts' that think they know what they are talking about, but really have not a clue. But at least some of them ant to learn! But anyhoo...you are right: I haven't aclue what XML is, how it works or how to work with it.

Yep, I got the 'bluescreen' transistion installed, and I tested it out and it worked fine. So that's not a big deal to me anymore. Where do I go from here to create the effect I'm looking for?

Yes, the whole screen image shrinks down to the lower right corner, while the text scrolls up the left side of the screen. I understand about how to 'blank' the text with the space bar, but I am not sure about the rest. I don't want the original image to shrink down to the corner and then grow back to full size...I want a logo to appear in the corner on top of the video image. But maybe you are not finished with me? Thanks for your help so far...what's next?

OK, I've been working with this, let me know if I am doing something wrong: 1)I assembled the video clip from three logos 2)I laid the "credits: lower right corner" transition over the entire clip, with no text. The image shrinks down to the corner, and back to full size at completetion 3) I saved this to my computer as a video file. The file is just the logos shrinking down/up, with a solid blue background, since I did not put it on top of any other video yet. 4) I opened a ...

Yeah, I trimmed off the reduce/enlarge ends of the saved video. I am not really sure if black as a background color will work: All the logs have plenty of black in them...wouldn't they just end up with all the black parts 'transparent' as before like the blue? I cannot change the logo's colors for they are coprporate logos and should stay in thier approved colors. How about if I use a color for the background that does not appear in any of the three logos I use? The logos use blue, ...

I tried to substitute new measurement numbers for the effect: I changed them to: .80, .80, .16, .12. I did this on both lines that showed the numbers. I saved this as another xml file, and sure enough both of the 'credits: lower right corner' show up in the 'add credits' task pane. However, they both are the same. The image does not shrink down any smaller or in a different location than before. Did I miss something?

I deleted the modified xml file from my 'addontfx' folder, leaving only the original "credits: lower right" in the file. I went back as re-saved the origianl xml agaian, chaning the parameters to .80,.80,.16,.12 and also chaing the title line )I added the word 'smaller' to the end of the title. It does not show up in my WMM under credits like the last one...just the original one is all that is there now.
