DPL Transitions & Effects for Vista Moviemaker

Since I got Vista in early 2007, I have generated quite a few Transitions and Effects for Moviemaker V6.0. With the advent of Rehan's ShaderTFX Vista Moviemaker was allowed to sing. This is just a repository for most of my efforts, most requiring ShaderTFX. As you can tell, I am a great fan of ShaderTFX.

Most of these packages stand alone, but are also kits that can be personalized with the writing of a little more XML. By looking at the AppNotes or the XML file provided, you can see what parameters are exposed, and how to use/modify them.

Each package below has an image of many or all of the Icons that will be installed in your Moviemaker, a short description of the package and three buttons. Move your mouse cursor over the small Icons image to see a larger version of it and move out of the enlarged image to close it.

The three buttons are:
   • Show a Demonstration Video
   • Download the Installation Package
   • Go to the Associated Forum at Moviemaker.net

The miscellaneous HL Application Notes link will get you to a little more in depth discussion of the effects and transitions, including the appropriate XML parameters and syntax. Also info on creating any images types involved in the TFX.

The miscellaneous FX Application Notes link will get you to a little more in depth discussion of the HLSL coding techniques used in the ShaderTFX effects and transitions and for effects without using ShaderTFX.

These last two areas are sparse now, but I'll add to them as time and inclination permit.


Rehan's original ShaderTFX installs properly only on the 32 bit Vista OS. He has now introduced a beta version for the 64 bit Vista. See 64b ShaderTFX.

To use the DPL installers, you must install to the proper Shared folder.

When the installer gets to the "Directory" dialog select or type in the proper path to the Shared folder.
This is usually
c:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared.

DPL Anilogo Effects for Moviemaker


Demo Video
Download
Forum Link

10/20/2007 This package is a kit to create Animated Overlay Effects for Vista MM. Click the Demo Video button.

The demo includes transitions from my Imagewipe3 package and a Saucerman moving logo effect just for fun. But concentrate on the animations: Walking Mouse, Lightning Strike, Spinning Earth, Rippling Money, Purple Fish and Rippling US Flag. That's the good stuff.

You can download the package above. Run the exe to install 10 animation effects. It has a proper uninstaller.
Rehan's ShaderTFX must be installed and operational.

This package requires an image file containing all of the images that make up the animation.
Like this: Sample Sprite Sheet for DPL Anilogo.

The Sprite Sheet image is a PNG file which is a nxn square matrix at preferred aspect ratio of 4:3 or 16:9 (or maybe 14:9 to look pretty good on both aspect ratio projects). The areas not to be shown are transparent (shows as black in this image);

Irfanview does a nice job of extracting the images from an animated GIF for those of you like me that are better at "borrowing" than drawing. Also you can use the "Take Picture from Preview" function in MM to borrow images from a video. Like the black hole from Katho's animation files. Lots of animations at "Neo's Clip Archive"

I use an old version 4 Paint Shop Pro to combine the individual images into the Sprite Sheet and Irfanview to better define the transparent areas. Many image editors could do this function.

The parameters used in the XML are:
// XML File semantics & Defaults

  • float4 RectOverlay = {0,0,1,1}; Position of the Animated Overlay
  • float AlphaOverlay = 1.0; Transparency of the Animated Overlay
  • float Progress = -1.0; Used to Control Progress (-1.0 = use default)
  • float2 AniSize = {4,10}; Matrix size of Images - Default 4x4, 10 Images
  • bool TransparentOL = true; Choose Transparent Overlay (true) or Composite Add Mode (false)
  • float ModStrength = 0.9; Alpha Strength for the Composite Add Mode
  • bool FlipH = false; Mirror the Images Horizontally if true
  • bool FlipV = false; Mirror the Images Vertically if true
  • float CycleTime = 2.0; Animation Cycle time in seconds
  • float MaxCycles = -1; Used to Cutoff animation/blank overlay
    default -1 is go forever, 4 means repeat 4 times max

Have fun creating, this is a kit. Report any problems (or successes) in the forum.

DPL Anilogo II Effects for Moviemaker

Demo Video

Forum Link

11/29/2007 I made up a few more AniLogos. Some Holiday and some miscellaneous.
16 new Sprite Sheets and 24 effects. MM 6.0 only.

Click the Demo Video button for a video demo with most of them.

Click the Download button to get the installer. Then run the exe. It has an uninstaller.
Note: You must have previously installed Rehan's ShaderTFX and DPL AniLogo above.

For the adventurous, the Magic is in the XML file where the RectOverlay parameter can place, size and move the animated image. Open the xml file in notepad and take a look at it.

To Place, see these kind of parameters:

<Param name="RectOverlay" type="float4" value=" 0.1, 0.1, 0.2, 0.2"/>

puts upper left corner at 0.1 (10%) horizontally and 0.1 vertically.
it will be 0.2 (20%) wide and 0.2 tall.

To Move and Change Size, see these kind of parameters:

<Param name="RectOverlay" evaluation="Linear" type="float4" > 
  <Point time="0.00 " value="0.75, 0.10, 0.2, 0.2"/> 
  <Point time="0.50 " value="0.70, 0.15, 0.3, 0.3"/> 
  <Point time="1.00 " value="0.75, 0.10, 0.2, 0.2"/> 
</Param> 

This gives a position and size at time 0.0, moving to a different position and size at time 0.5 then moving back to the starting position/size at time 1.0 where time 0.0 is the start of the video and time 1.0 is the end.

The FlipH (Mirror horizontally) and AlphaOverlay (Opaqueness, see the big ghost) are other of the more interesting parameters.

To make a new effect using an existing image, just copy and past it's xml section back into the xml file and modify the parameters to do what you want. viola' a additional, new effect.

For the really adventurous, you can make the sprite sheets from public domain animated GIF files. IrfanView can extract each frame to a separate bmp file, then use your favorite graphic editor to create a sheet of the proper size, and paste all the frames into it and save it as a PNG file with transparency where you want it. Write the XML and you have a new animated effect. There is a generic AniLogo icon at iconid="0".

And of course for those that aren't artistically challenged like I am, you can "draw" your own animation frames. Animated GIF editors are great for this for drawing and previewing.

DPL Frame Effects for Moviemaker


Demo Video
Download
Forum Link

9/29/2007 This package installs 50+ effects including the Danielle frames for XP modified for Vista, and a few narrow gauge frames that I made and like. Being effects, you can still add titles to the title line while applying these frames as effects to each image or video as desired. One rendering then does all.

Click Demo Video to see a video of some of them.

Click Download to get the installer and run the exe. It has an uninstaller.
Note: You must have previously installed Rehan's ShaderTFX and it must be unexpired or registered.

Also included are some shrink/expand effects. Of particular note is the DPL 100% (shrink?).

The native Frame Effects will all snuggle up to edges of the picture/video and pull away from the edges of the video window. Thus for 4:3 in a 16:9 project, vice versa, or just any random aspect ratio like portrait, the frame will be letterboxed in the video window. As your movie progresses then, the frame will be changing sizes if aspect ratios are intermixed. I like the frame to snuggle out to the video window edges.

Therefore, apply the DPL 100% effect first, then the frame effect. Now the images will be letterboxed inside of the frame cutout. You can crop, shrink, frame etc prior to the 100% effect for different appearances.

In general, the DPL 100% effect letterboxes the image to the view window and can be useful prior to many of the other effects.

DPL Geometric Deform Effects for Moviemaker


Demo Video
Download
Forum Link

2/1/2008 I just can't quit playing with this thing (ShaderTFX). Here are some 2 dimensional deformations of rectangle to other shapes, inspired by a function in my old Paint Shop Pro.

First I tried to make a deform to circle, kinda like a fisheye, but in 2 dimensions. When I finally got the arithmetic worked out, I added some other simple shapes.

Click Demo Video for a DPL 2D Geometric Deformation Effects Demo.

Click the Download button to download an installer for these effects. Run the exe file to install it. You may have to be signed on as administrator as the installer installs a file in the c:/Program Files/Movie Maker/Shared/ directory. A proper uninstaller is provided. Rehan's ShaderTFX is required. See Rehan's ShaderTFX.

The shapes available in addition to Ellipse are Diamond, Hourglass, Bowtie, Pyramid, Cone, Arch and Cup. Most just straight line width = f(y) or height=f(x) except Arch and Cup which are catenary approximations width = f(y squared) (Like the St Louis Arch). Also the flat sides may be curved with the ellipse calculation.

After I got the deformations, I decided each needed a morph into and a morph out of. So each shape is provided as a triplet. Morph In from rectangle, Deformed Steady and Morph Out to rectangle. This can be utilized with 3 identical sequential photos(images) or by 3 splits in a video. See the beginning/end sections of the demo video. Also, of course these work with other effects. See the frames, animated logos etc. in the demo. Changing the order of the effects determines if the other effects will be introduced before or after the deformation effect.

For you XML experimenters, the background color (default black) may be changed in the XML with:

  <Param name="BackgroundColor" type="float4" value="0,0.0,0.0,1" /> or 

<BackgroundColor type="color" value="black" />
When type is float4 the values represent Red, Green, Blue and Alpha(unused). 0.0 is hex 0x00 and 1.0 is hex 0xff.
When type is color, values may be any of the windows color names. See a color name table at MS Color Table.

Other interesting parameters are:

<TextureFile value="%ProgramFiles%\Movie Maker\Shared\AddOnTFX\
                                  DPL Deform Effects BG\BlueGold.PNG"/> 
where a background image may be specified instead of a color.
Three 4:3 background tiled images are provided.
This is attempted only if BackgroundColor is not specified.

Also, there is a progress parameter used to move from rectangle to the deformation.

  <Param name="Progress" type="float" value="1.00"/>
If you see a particular progress point you like, just specify it.
0.0 is no deformation, 1.0 is full deformation.
Also you can twiddle with this a bit to get things like the "Jumpy Circle" deformation effect.

And then, there is X and Y aspect ratio which default to 1.0.

  <Param name="AspectX" type="float" value="2.666666" /> 
  <Param name="AspectY" type="float" value="2.0" /> 

These will shrink the specified axis by the value. e.g AspectX = 1.333333 makes an ellipse appear as a circle in 4:3 videos and AspectX = 1.777777 makes an ellipse appear as a circle in 16:9 videos. The above XY values make a smaller circle in a 4:3 production. Like the end of the demo.

Also provided are zip in from nothing and shrink out to nothing effects, one straight and one kinda like twilight zone ("we control your horizontal, we control your vertical").

Not sure how you all might use these effects, but I had fun building and now using them.

DPL ImageWipe Transitions for Moviemaker


Demo Video
Download
Forum Link

Download and run the installer exe. You may need administrator privilege. It has a proper uninstaller.

10/12/2007 This version contains two ways to do the image wipe.

EZ Mode - Straight line transition at angle.
The Image is easier to create - just an image in the center of a transparent canvas

Fancy Mode - arbitrary transition geometry
-The image is placed on a large canvas, then transparent Black and White colors determine the transition points.

This is really a kit to allow you to create your ImageWipe transitions. Read the XML file for some more information. Also, some generic Icons (RULD) are at 16, 17, 18 and 19 in the DLL in case you don't want Beer Bottles, Red Trucks or Ceramic Cats as your Icon.

I found the fx file getting complex enough to expire if I put a few more instructions in it. My graphics card is fairly hot, so I don't know if there is a problem with lesser cards. Would like any feedback of problems (or successes).

Also included is a "100% effect". For videos/images with aspect ratios different from the project aspect ratio, just apply this effect to the A/B images, and the transition will be full screen even if the image isn't.

DPL ImageWipe II Transitions for Moviemaker


Demo Video

Forum Link

12/20/2007 Here are some more ImageWipe transitions.

Download and run the installer exe. You may need administrator privilege. It has a proper uninstaller.

You must have DPL ImageWipe (Look at DPL ImageWipe above) and Rehan's ShaderTFX installed and operating.

This set of 22 Image Wipes has no particular theme, just a bunch of public domain images I like and use. I got most of them from Google Images search engine.

You can make up your own. Just center an image on a 4:3 canvas, paint the parts you want transparent an odd color, then save the file as a PNG with the odd color designated transparent. Put the file in the DPL ImageWipes3C folder.

Then add an entry in the DPL Imagewipe3c.xml file looking like this:

<Transition name="DPL IW3EZC MyPicR" iconid="0" 
            guid="DPL IW3EZC MyPicR" ShaderModel="2"> 
  <Param name="ShaderFilename" value="DPL Imagewipe3EZ.fx"/> 
  <Param name="Technique" value="ImageWipeEZ"/> 
  <Param name="TextureFile" value="%ProgramFiles%\Movie Maker\Shared\AddOnTFX\
                                        DPL ImageWipes3C\MyPic.png"/> 
  <Semantics> 
    <Param name="Angle" type="float" value="0.0" /> 
    <Param name="FlipH" type="float" value="0" /> 
    <Param name="BorderWidth" type="float" value="0.1" /> 
  </Semantics> 
</Transition> 

Next time you start MM6 you will have a new transition named MyPicR.
FlipH can be 0 or 1.
Angle 0 is right, 90 up, -90 down and 180 or -180 is left, etc.
BorderWidth is the fraction of the video width (0.1 = 10%)
iconid 0 is a generic icon.

DPL PushSlideComp Transitions for Moviemaker


Demo Video

Forum Link

10/12/2007 Here are a few more miscellaneous transitions using ShaderTFX. Push, Slide and Composite transitions.

Download and run the installer exe. You may need administrator privilege. It has a proper uninstaller.
You must have ShaderTFX installed and operating.

These are just tweaks to Rehan's PIP transition and Blaine's Transparencies and Composite A add B transitions HLSL code. The tweak to PIP is just to allow Slide In transitions. To Blaine's transitions I added a quarter second fade to the head and tail to curtail abrupt entries and exits. Also, composite is in some weaker strengths in case the composite over saturates the video.

It's nice to stand on the shoulders of giants.

To use the composites, just split your video (or put two identical images) in the timeline view, then put the composite video in the slot. Mostly overlap the composite video with the prior part, and overlap the succeeding video completely to the first transition. Then put the Composite transition in the first transition section and the ShowB transition in the 2nd transition section. This makes the transition seamless (I think Blaine invented this. It's because you can't overlap videos totally, but you can butt transitions together). You may have to clip the composite video (and/or stretch/shrink the pictures) to get the correct timing lengths.

As always, you can compose your own XML to vary some of the parameters. Look at the XML file.

DPL 3D Cube Rotate B (Take 2) Transitions for Moviemaker


Demo Video
Download
Forum Link

2/29/2008 This set of 10 transitions is a slight improvement to my earlier cube rotate transitions. The improvements are:
--A perfectly straight edge on the perspective edges of the cube
--Ability to size X and Y dimensions of the cube (3/4 "small" size included)
--Able to have a background image or a background color
--Progress is a "Square" function. Starts out slow then accelerates and then kind of "clicks" into place

Right, Up, Left and Down "rotating" transitions are included in the full size transitions. Works nicely with photos and videos.

With the 3/4 (small) size transitions, things are a little different. Two additional transitions include a "size in" and a "size out" to start and end the sequence. Also, the transitions must totally overlap and butt up against each other so that the size doesn't bounce out to full size. Mostly (only?) useful with photos, not videos. See the demo video.

The "size in" and "size out" transitions should be twice the length of the rotate transitions, because they each contain a size AND a rotate section.

You can change the background color with the

  <BackgroundColor type="color" value="darkblue"/> 
statements in the Semantics area of the XML file and/or you can change the background image with the
   <TextureFile value="%ProgramFiles%\Movie Maker\Shared\AddOnTFX\
                         DPL 3D CubeRotateB BG\HappyFrame.jpg"/> 
statements and/or you can change the perspective with the
   <Perspective type="float" value="0.50"/>
statements.

re: view post Forum Link. I couldn't get the referenced spatial transform approach to work, so I used Rehan's ShaderTFX to implement Rehan's graphical design of these 3D Flybys with just a little geometric distortion to kinda simulate 3D as he accomplished with PIP++ in XP.

There is a Flyby Effect which can be applied to each photo where it flies in, pauses, then flies out.

The Flyby Bump Transitions have 3 transitions. One for the first photo to fly in, one for all of the middle photos to bump each other out, and one for the last photo to fly out.

The frames, mouse, and flags in the demo are from some other DPL ShaderTFX packages and just for fun.

DPL HiLite Effects & Shaped PIP Transitions for Moviemaker

If you like what you see, download and run the installer exe. You may need administrator privilege. It has a proper uninstaller.
You must have ShaderTFX installed and operating unexpired or registered.

HiLite Effects - These effects are shaped by a mask (overlay) and the size and position of the high lighting is controlled with rectangle parameters. Two concurrent high lighted areas are allowed, with each having separate control of the position and size, but using the same shaped mask. Borders may be separately colored or can take the image provided in the mask for its boundaries.

Shaped PIP Transitions - These transitions ae shaped by a mask also and the size and position of the PIPs are separately controlled with rectangle parameters. Here too, the border may be colored or an image taken from the mask.

This is a kit. The provided effects and transitions probably will not satisfy your needs. You can get a lot of mileage just by recoding the rectangle parameters in the XML file. A generic Button Icon is provided at iconid="0".

Also, masks are fairly easy to generate. 640x480 is a good canvas size to work with.

In the Bordered Effects, black where you want the image darker and transparent where you want the high light. Any color in between will be used to place the border color or image. Check out the samples in the DPL HiLite Masks folder in the AddOnTFX folder.

In the Soft Effects, the mask should be black for dark background, and white for full intensity and levels of gray in between to provide the softness. I just make a black and white image, then apply a Gaussian blur of about 20 pixels to the image. The boundaries then soften up with a gray gradient and provide the soft boundaries.

In the Shaped PIPs the same mask as used for the bordered effects works just fine.

If you like what you see, download and run the installer exe. You may need administrator privilege. It has a proper uninstaller.
You must have ShaderTFX installed and operating unexpired or registered.

In Movie Maker forums, I have seen some requests for various kinds of flashing effects and transitions. This package can accommodate some of those requests. The basis is introduction of a real-time clock to control the flashing. It's time period and duty cycle may be specified.

ColorFlash Transitions - This one just morphs to a single color in the first half of the transition based on the brightness of the first image. Then in the second half of the transition, it morphs from the color to the second image, based on the brightness of the second image. Similar to Rehan's Electrics where the duration of the morphing is controlled by the amount of overlapping of the two images, like all transitions.

ImageFlash Transitions - This one superimposes an overlay image on a fade from the first image to the second image. It may be flashing with the real-time clock or on solid, and it's transparency may be specified. Also the size and position of the overlay image may be specified.

ColorFlash Effects - This one just alternates between a color and the image at the real-time clock's controlled rate and duty cycle. The color may have it's transparency specified.

ImageFlash Effects - This one superimposes a flashing or solid overlay image on the original image. The overlay image transparency and the size and position of the image may be specified as well as its flash rate.

This is a kit. The provided effects and transitions probably will not satisfy your needs. You can get a lot of mileage just by recoding the rectangle parameters, the color parameter and the cycletime/dutycycle parameters in the XML file. Check out the DPL Flashing TFX.xml file in the AddOnTFX folder for templates and seeing which parameters are exposed. A generic Button Icon is provided at iconid="0".

Also, images are fairly easy to generate. 640x480 is one good canvas size to work with, but most anything will work and the aspect ration may be controlled with the Rectangle parameter.

In the overlay images, make the image transparent where you want to see the background. Check out the sample skull image in the DPL Flashing TFX Images folder in the AddOnTFX folder.

The real-time clock's cycle time probably should be a multiple of the frame time (1/30 sec for NTSC and 1/25 sec for PAL) to get rid of any strobe type effects.

Check out the DPL Spotlight Effects.xml file in the AddOnTFX folder for templates and seeing how to use the parameters. A generic Button Icon is provided at iconid="0".

The nLights parameter can specify 1, 2 or 3 lights which will be controlled with the ImageRectangleA, ImageRectangleB and ImageRectangleC parameters. The BackGroundIntensity and ForeGroundIntensity parameters set the intensity of the non-lit and fully lit areas. The lit areas are the geometric mean of the lights so when more than 1 light shows on a pixel, it is a little brighter.

If you like what you see, download and run the installer exe. You may need administrator privilege. It has a proper uninstaller.
You must have ShaderTFX installed and operating unexpired or registered.

These are a few of my favorite AniLogos used in DPL AniLogo Effects converted to Transitions.

The Animated Logo Image is moved across the screen horizontally left or right with a rectangle parameter. Then a V shaped trail is left where the transition occurs with a fade from imageA to imageB. A width of the fading of about 5% is a nice value.

The Trailing V follows the AniLogo image and can be offset a bit with respect to the AniLogo. Also, it's point is blunted to make the V better fit the particular AniLogo used and the angle of the upper and lower portions of the V can be specified for movements slightly off of horizontal.

You can see some information about composing AniLogo Sprite Sheets at AniLogo Sprites. They are the same as the Sprite Sheets for the DPL AniLogo Effects.

If you like what you see, download and run the installer exe. You may need administrator privilege. It has a proper uninstaller. Six sample ColorShift effects will be installed.
You must have ShaderTFX installed and operating unexpired or registered.

In its simplest form, the color mask (overlay) can be just a solid color. Then this effect just takes the original video, converts it to grayscale and then applies the solid color such as sepia, red, purple etc. as a hue of the video. It gets more interesting to make the mask different colors in different areas giving different highlights. Also, if the mask is a PNG file, any transparent area will just let the original video show through. Since the color biasing sometime darkens the video, there is an Intensity parameter to brighten it up again.

It gets more fun to cycle the colors through the hues of the rainbow with the HueCycleTime parameter.

And even more fun to create the Color Mask with color gradients. See the samples in the DPL Color Masks folder.

I use PaintShop Pro to generate the gradients with the gradient editor. I imagine Photoshop, Paint.net, Gimp etc. can do the same, or better.

Enjoy.

Six PhotoStack transitions will be installed. Two for odd/even transitions and four to start and stop the sequence.
You must have ShaderTFX installed and operating unexpired or registered.

This set of transitions is a port of the fine design by dlk in MM XP land which uses PIP+. See dlk MM Forum Post.

A way to use this set is:

  • In Tools->Options set Picture Duration to twice what you like (I use 8 sec)
  • Drag all the photos you want to the timeline
  • Order them the way you want and apply any effects you want
  • Starting at the left, overlap photo2 with photo1 half way (4 sec?)
  • Progress to the right, overlapping each photo to the left as far as you can. Butt them up.
  • Now, drag the PhotoStack1(odd) transition to the first transition, PhotoStack2(even) to the second transition and continue alternating them to the end.
  • Now, add a copy of the first photo to the beginning and of the last photo to the end.
  • Overlap the first 2 photos and the last 2 photos and apply Start1(Odd) the the first transition and Stop1 or Stop2 to the last, matching the last of the transitions (Odd or Even).
  • That's it. If you add a photo or delete a photo you have to go back and make sure the transitions are in the correct Odd-Even sequence. Probably best done in the Storyboard view.

Another way to start and stop the stack is described in dlk's post. It uses an Inverted Title Overlay to fade into and out of the PhotoStack. I think I like that approach even better.

There are some more nice application notes at dlk's MM Forum Post above.

Enjoy.

If you like what you see, download and run the installer exe. You may need administrator privilege. It has a proper uninstaller.

Six Overlay Sample Effects will be installed. Fade In, Hold, Fade Out, Fade In/Out, Moving Fade In/Out and Fade In/Out Transparent (Watermark). Fade In/Hold/out can be used with a long sequence of images (photos) while fade In/Out works OK for a video.
You must have ShaderTFX installed and operating unexpired or registered.

These effects are similiar to the Moving Logo effects above, but with the added ability to specify a fade in and fade out in time units (seconds). This is a kit for your use with your overlays. The overlay in the samples is one of my favorites from PapaJohns title overlay examples.

Also, overall Transparency can be specified so this effect can provide watermarking.

Overlay Effects have some advantages and disadvantages compared to Overlay Titles.

  • Disadvantage - Can't have arbitrary start times and lengths (teffects are synced to an image or video) - This can be alleviated with multiple copies of images and splits in a video.
  • Advantage - Can have up to six effects in a given image or video and its easy to set transparency and motion and size. And this one can specify a fade in and out in time units (seconds instead of a percentage of progress).

Enjoy.

You must have ShaderTFX installed and operating unexpired or registered.

AniBorders are the same basic concept as the AniLogos above, just using larger images with appropriate resolution to be a border, and conceptually you may have pure animations like the Flames Border or one or more animations mixed with a fixed background like the Halloween one. Also, there is an extra rectangle parameter for the underlying image to shrink it into an opening in a border (frame). This is a kit to show some possibilities, and for you to be able to construct your own Animated Borders.

The Border Sprite sheets are a bit large and take some time to load in Movie Maker previewing so you may see some pauses, however the final rendering will be just fine.

Eleven Curtain effects will be installed. Variations on curtains opening, holding and closing.
You must have ShaderTFX installed and operating unexpired or registered.

If you are applying these effects to a video, just split a small ~2 sec section off of each end, then apply an opening effect to the first section, a open effect to the middle and a closing effect to the last section. There is also a closed effect if you want a leader or trailer. With photos you need just apply the opening and closing to the first and last photo and the open effect to all the photos in between. If you are mixing aspect ratios you need to apply the 100% zoom effect before the curtain effect. This will letterbox the image in the window.

This is a kit to show some possibilities, and for you to be able to construct your own Curtains. It would also be reasonable to construct window and sliding gate groups of effects.

The image used in this example is from Saaria Product's webpage. A little cut and past gives an image with two parts - the valence and side curtains and then the curtain itself. You can see the image here. And purchase it for your big screen from Saaria.

Here are a couple of different colored curtains. Red Curtains and Blue Curtains

clasycassie from the MovieMaker Forums got it all figured out a while back in time for a birthday video, and here are two more curtain images blue and red sans gold piping. Thanks Cassie.

These Effects are a KISS approximation of color temperature where cooler is just boosting the blue content of the image and warmer is boosting the yellow (red & green) content of the image. See Wikipedia for more info. This implementation emperically (eyballing) is pretty close to what the HP PhotoSmart image editor does.

See the app notes for the one parameter you can tweak. Intensity in percent, + for warmer and - for cooler. Since these are effects, they can be stacked but are not symetrical between warmer and cooler.

ShaderTFX is not required.

These Effects are KISS glow effects where first the image is blurred in the XY directions, then at each blurred sample if the color is in range of the specified color, it's intensity is increased, otherwise the original unblurred sample is returned.

The effects are stackable and can be used in combination with other effects. They apply some nice subtle glow effects on some images and are totally ineffective on other images. Depends on the content and the colors involved.

This is a combination of techniques taken from Blaine's Bloom effects and Rehan's ColorPass effects.

Sixteen Rotate effects and seven transitions will be installed.

You must have ShaderTFX installed and operating.

This package is mostly samples and a kit waiting for creative image makers and XML writers to expand it with their talents.

The Rotation function just rotates an image around its center or rocks it +=angle, and of course can be no rotation (angle=0). The rotation/rocking can be angle, number of cycles or cycletime controlled.

The transitions included are:
1. Fade from A to B while rotating or rocking both.
2. PIP showing an image or video on a background video or image. The PIP size and position is controlled with a rectangle parameter and rotated or rocked or static and can be transparent.

The effects included are:
1. Overlay Logo/Watermark images positioned and sized with rectangles having transparency that can spin or rock.
2. Overlay Animated Images which can use any of the sprite sheets used in the DPL Anilogo packages plus spin/rock.
3. Just spin/rock/resize the underlying video/image.

This is actually a nice general purpose Overlay Effect package which includes sizing, placement, timed fade in/out, transparency, rotation/rocking and sprite animation.

Also, in case the underlying image/video on the timeline does not match the aspect ratio of the project, a letterbox effect is supplied to put on the image first, then the other effects will be placed where you expect.

Eight AcompBclip transitions will be installed.

You must have ShaderTFX installed and operating.

A composite B add is great for superimposing Neo's Clip Archive video clips over a video or picture. I have noticed that many of the clips end up very saturated and it fades out some of the original colors.

This package attempts to give a more true representaion of the original B clip by displaying it if the overall brightness of the B clip is above a certain level. Most overlay clips have a black background and a clip level of 25% saturated gives a pretty good effect. That level can be changed in the XML, and a 100% level is supplied which is equivalent to the original AcompB transitions.

Also, since the transition overlap can't be 100%, there is a little tail where only the 'B' image is seen. To combat this, an In and an Out transition is supplied. The way to use this is to split a video (or supply 2 images), put the overlay clip in the middle and then overlap both ends till they butt up together. Then make the first transition the IN and the second transition the OUT.

Another feature is that the IN fades in with a 1/4 sec time and the OUT with a 1/4 sec time so that things don't just click in and out. Modifieable in the XML.

A rectangle parameter lets you change the position and size of the clip overlay, and it can be transparent, both with XML tweaks.

If you like what you see, download and run the installer exe. You may need administrator privilege. It has a proper uninstaller.
Three PIP2 effects and 26 PIP2 transitions will be installed.

You must have ShaderTFX installed and operating.

This is a family of PIP transitions in four different categories.

1. There are 16 PIP transitions that can be used between any vid/pic sequence. They always start with a full size A image and end with a full size B image. They include various combinations of zoom, shrink, move, fade in/out, slide in/out, solid colored border, black is transparent, background color and background image. Best used as 1-2 sec transitions. You can write your own XML to create other combinations of these parameters.

2. Three Picture Sequence transitions. These are designed to show a large present image and a small preview of the next image. There are Start, Middle and End transitions. To utilize these, the transitions must totally overlap the images. Butt them up together. Make the duration of the images twice the time you want them to display as theey will be half length when you finish overlapping them. XML coding can change the preview and large image size and position. These transitions also have a real-time (not a percentage) entry and exit time (nominally 1 sec) so the movement time is constant no matter the duration of the image. A nice Neo fractal image is used as the background image and you can change it to your own.

3. Another version of a preview and main image transitions. These come in 2 versions, an equal size PIP pair and a small/large image pair. These can be used without butting the transitions up together. With and without black_is_transparent and background. These can be used nicely with 2 long videos. The images switch size and position half way through the transition.

4. Two Video Inset transitions, a timed fade in and a timed fade out. The inset is small and in the lower right corner, kinda like an announcer face small and a game in the background. The way to use these is to take the main video and split it. Then insert the inset video at the split and totally overlay the inset at either end with a transition. Then make the 2 transitions VidInset FadeIn and VidInset FadeOut.

There also are three PIP2 effect included.

  • A PIP2 100% Letterbox - This needs to be applied to a vid/pic if it's aspect ratio is different from the project aspect ratio to make the backgrounds and effects appropriately sized.
  • Two overlays (OvalBlue and OvalWood) which create a transparent area outside of the oval and provide a transparent area inside the oval to let the image show through. Nice effects to apply to a video inset and even any image used on the timeline using this transition set. XML writers can create more of these "frames".

This set of transitions defines exactly black (rgba = 0,0,0,1) as transparent. If this caused unwanted transparency, the <BlackIsTransparent type="bool" value="true" /> statement can be changed to "false".

The transparency works nicely with PNG images and GIF animations including transparency. Here is a Transparency Demo Video.

Enjoy and make us some new ones. Lots of variations possible with just XML coding.

Three HeartBeat Effects examples will be installed.

You must have ShaderTFX installed and operating. Expired trial OK.

These effects just give a dynamic magnify bump of the video/image and are modeled after Rehan's original HeartBeat effect for PIP+.

ShaderTFX allows real-time control, so these new effects just keep on rhythmically pumping no matter the length of the video/image.

The effect starts and ends at 1.0 magnification and allows 4 different magnifications at 4 different time points in a cycle. And the cycle rate can be set in Beats per Minute. 75 BPM is a normal female heart beat rate.

Also, there is a parameter to set the maximum number of beats. Any partial beat at the end of the image duration is cut off so the image always ends at magnification of 1.0.

The control parameters are:

  1. TimePoint - default = {0.20, 0.25, 0.30, 0.50}; // Normalized to 1.0
  2. MagPoint - default = {1.00, 1.20, 1.24, 1.00}; // Normalized to 1.0
  3. BeatsPerMinute - default = 75.0; // Heart Rate
  4. MaxCycles - default = 99999; // Limit cycles
  5. BackGroundColor - default = {0,0,0,1}; // Black

Broadcast HD Television folks have come up with an interesting way to mix 4:3 content with 16.9 content. Just a pair of sidebars with a blurred/shaded replica of the nearby image. Here are effects to add to a 4:3 to simulate that idea.

To use the effects, you must first add the DPL AspectMix Letterbox effect (included), then the AspectMix of choice. The 2 Titles are just added over the image/video.

The FX code allows mixing of 16x9 content into a 4x3 project. Just write the XML modifying the ImageRect parameter.

ShaderTFX allows image overlays, so sidebars of arbitrary content may be constructed and used. Greek columns might look nice ;-)

If the aspect ratio of your pic/vid is different than the project aspect ratio, you may have to first add the DPL TransFrame Letterbox effect (included), then the TransFrame of choice.

Six Sample CKPrep Effects and a Letterbox Effect will be installed.

You must have ShaderTFX installed and operating. (unexpired or registered for masks)

While fiddling around with Rehan's ChromaKey transitions I found myself wanting to crop/mask the green/blue screen source clips to remove artifacts and unwanted material. Also some sizing and placement and maybe movement of the image on a background clip would be nice.

This is an XML kit to let you customize those parameters.

  • Place the source clip on the timeline and apply the letterbox effect if its aspect ratio is different than the project aspect ratio
  • Then with a CKPrep Effect:
    • The source clip can be cropped with a rectangle or an oval or with a black/white mask
    • The result can be sized and placed on a solid color background (typically blue or green)
    • Then the modified source clip can be ChromaKeyed with a transition to a background. Typically split the background and insert the green/blue modified source clip, totally overlap both ends and apply the ChromaKeyB and ChromaKeyA transitions.

See the DPL CKPrep Effects Custom.xml file in the ShaderTFX folder for all the parameters to modify and the BW mask sample in the DPL CKPrep Masks folder.

This is an XML kit to let you customize various parameters.

These effects start with a rectangle which can be sized, placed and moved.

Then various parameters let you:

  • Color shade the inside of the rectangle - gray, colored, inverted color
  • Color solid the inside of the rectangle - Uses shade color value
  • Pixelate the inside of the rectangle
  • Emboss the inside of the rectangle
  • Lighten or darken the inside of the rectangle
  • Lighten or darken outside of the rectangle
  • Put a colored border around the rectangle
  • Turn the rectangle into an ellipse
  • Change the inside the rectangle effects to outside the rectangle effects

See the Template effect in the XML file for all of the parameters and their default values.

DPL Resize Rect FX for MovieMaker

If you like what you read, download and run the installer exe. You may need administrator privilege. It has a proper uninstaller.
Two Sample Resize Rect Effects and a Letterbox Effect will be installed.

ShaderTFX not required.

XP Movie Maker letterboxes photos and stretches videos to fit the project screen while Vista Movie Maker letterboxes both photos and videos.

Sometimes you would like to get rid of the black letterbox bars even if the image is a bit stretched out of it's proper aspect ratio. Circles become ovals, squares become rectangles and that might be better than the black bars (and people become chubby or skinny - not usually desireable ;-) )

Also, sometimes MM doesn't get a video clip aspect ratio detected properly and squishes/Stretches it horizontally or vertically. Common to some particular VideoCams and formats.

The three effects installed are:

  • 4x3 to 16x9 resize
  • 16x9 to 4:3 resize
  • Letterbox

The way to use this is to first apply the letterbox effect to the clip which will make a full project size canvas available to the FX code (including the black bars), then apply the appropriate 4x3 or 16x9 resize effect.

Also, this is an XML kit to let you customize the source rect and the destination rect for other aspect ratio clips and even crop/magnify/letterbox portions of the clip.

The XML parameters are:

  • RectSource - default = {0.0, 0.0, 1.0, 1.0}
  • RectDest - default = {0.0, 0.0, 1.0, 1.0}
  • BackgroundColor - default = {0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 1.0} (in case the RectDest is smaller than the project screen - i.e. add a colored border)

See the XML file for example XML coding. Crop/Magnify and different Letterboxing can be done with XML coding.

Five Sample MagicRectZoom Effects will be installed.

You must have ShaderTFX installed and operating. (expired OK except for attached images)

This is an XML kit to let you customize various parameters. The provided samples most likely will not match your clip/image. Learn the XML rectangle and Point/time syntax and you will look like a genius writing your own effects.

These effects start with a viewing rectangle which can be sized, placed and moved.

Then various parameters let you:

  • Zoom the image under the rectangle (the view point)
  • Offset the view point center that displays in the rectangle
  • Color shade the the inside/outside of the rectangle - gray, colored etc.
  • Lighten or darken the inside/outside of the rectangle
  • Put a colored border around the rectangle
  • Turn the rectangle into an ellipse
  • Change the inside the rectangle zoom to outside the rectangle zoom (useful?)
  • Attach an image to the effect for higher resolution zoom

See the Template effect in the XML file for all of the parameters and their default values.

Caveat: Zoom factors above 2 start showing blurring or pixelation unless you attach an image to the effect. ShaderTFX keeps a high resolution version of attached images while Movie Maker doesn't keep a hires version of the underlying image.

These effects simulate a "video wall" like you might see at Best Buy or Nike retail outlets where multiple TVs are arranged in a matrix to show a large display.

There are a 3x3 and 4x4 effects each having a sustain, and turn on/off sequences.

If you have a video, split a small (1-2 sec) section at each end, add the on effect to the first section, then add the sustain effect to the middle section and then the off effect to the last section.

Four TVNoise Effects will be installed, two color and two monochrome.

You must have ShaderTFX installed and operating. (expired OK)

I ran across some open source HLSL code for this effect by Pat 'Hawthorne' Shearon and Georg 'Leviathan' Steinrohder. Ported it to ShaderTFX and added scanline interference crawl.

These effects simulate horizontal light/dark/chroma aberation horizontal interference areas and some pixel noise. Optional vertical crawl and monochrome.

The XML parameters to vary are:

  • float NoiseIntensity default = 0.5; //noise effect intensity value (0 = no effect, 1 = full effect)
  • float ScanlineIntensity default = 0.4; //scanlines effect intensity value (0 = no effect, 1 = full effect)
  • float ScanLineCount default = 128; //scanlines effect count value (0 = no effect, 2048 = full effect)
  • float CrawlSpeed default = 0; // scanline interference crawl rate (0 = no effect, 4 = fast)
  • bool UseMonoChrome default = false; // Grayscale or Color

See the DPL TVNoise Template effect XML for an example with all the parameters.

These effects just use an external mask image to modulate the brightness of the underlying image. Kinda looks like texturing. Most of the mask images were created in Gimp.

The XML parameters to vary are:

  • float4 XYSize default = {1, 1, 0.5, 0.5}; // XSize, YSize, xoffset, yoffset
  • float3 IntensityBias default = {1,0,1}; // ClipHi, ClipLo, Strength
  • float Direction default = 0.0; // 0 = right, 90=up etc

Six transitions and one effect will be installed.

You must have ShaderTFX installed and operating. Expired trial OK.

The idea is to shrink and combine 2 videos to the upper left and upper right corners, then to shrink and combine 2 videos to the lower left and lower right corners, then combine those 2 videos top and bottom for the final result. See the video demo for a short description of the process.

Also, if the videos to be combined are not exactly the aspect ratio of the project, apply the Letterbox effect to get it to the correct profile.

If you are adventuresome and want to edit the join transitions to different sizes and positions, you might want to use the Composite A plus B transition for the final combining of the paired videos. Also, remember the B (second) video will be overlayed on the A video if they overlap.

The XML parameters in the combine transitions to vary are:

  • float4 RectAIn - Default = {0.0, 0.0, 1.0, 1.0}; // Normalized to 1.0 - All
  • float4 RectAOut - Default = {0.0, 0.0, 0.5, 0.5}; // Normalized to 1.0 - Upper Left
  • float4 RectBIn - Default = {0.0, 0.0, 1.0, 1.0}; // Normalized to 1.0 - All
  • float4 RectBOut - Default = {0.5, 0.0, 0.5, 0.5}; // Normalized to 1.0 - Upper Right
  • float4 ColorBackground - Default = {0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 1.0}; // Normalized to 1.0 - Black

10 transitions will be installed.

You must have ShaderTFX installed and operating. Expired trial OK.

The idea was initiated and prototyped by RobertJ of the WMM forums and was advanced to this stage with his permission.

The basic concept is to use the deform effects to stylize the entrance of the next or the exit of the current image in a transition pair.

See the XML file to find the XML parameters that you can customize for your own use. The most interesting being:

  • float4 DestRect - Default = {0.25,0.25,0.5,0.5}; // Rectangle Normalized to 1.0 - All
  • float Progress - Default = -1.0; // 0.0->1.0 - Progress of the deformation - Default = linear
  • bool Diamond - Default = false; // Diamond Deformation
  • bool Bowtie - Default = false; // Bowtie Deformation
  • bool IsOut - Default = true; // True for go from not deformed to deformed and vise versa for false

5 transitions will be installed.

You must have ShaderTFX installed and operating. Expired trial OK.

Take two clips with the same background and different left and right content (you had best use a tripod). Such as you on each side of a couch. Then these transitions give you various combinations of ghosting the left and right halves of the images. You can talk to yourself, talk to a ghost friend etc.

Normally you would fully overlap the A and B clips and then apply the desired ghost transition. The clips cannot be totally overlapped in Movie Maker, so there will be a few frames of nonsense at the beginning and end of the overlap. Either fade in/out the clips or publish/import/clip the movie.

The supplied transitions are oriented to placing the unique left image content as the first clip and the unique right image content as the second in a transition pair (AB). You can reverse this by writing some more XML.

See the XML file to find the XML parameters that you can customize for your own use. The most interesting being:

  • float4 GhostRect - Default = {0.0, 0.0, 0.5, 1.0}; // Normally left or right
  • float GhostAlpha - Default = 1.0; // Transparency of Ghost Side
  • float GhostSideStrength - Default = 1.0; // Multiplier for fine tuning
  • bool GhostA - Default = false; // Use the A image in an AB pair for the ghost

7 effects will be installed.

You must have ShaderTFX installed and operating. Expired trial OK except for background images.

Also, (my apologies) your Vista machine and graphics chips must be able to handle Pixel Shader level 3.0+. If not, the effects will install, but any preview or use of the effects will result in just a black screen. I just couldn't squeeze this design into Pixel Shader 2.0.

These effects take a pie shaped slice of the underlying image and copy and/or reflect it to the output rectangle n times. Also, the input and output can be rotated with angle commands. There is a SourceCenterXY command, and a Zoom command to allow interesting combinations.

Put your own image under these effects for a variety of visual sensations and/or see the XML and FX files to find the XML parameters that you can customize for your own use and build another kaleidoscope. They are :

  • float2 FadeInOutTime - Default = {0.0, 0.0}; // Fade time in seconds
  • float4 RectangleDst - Default = {0.0, 0.0, 1.0, 1.0};
  • float4 RectangleBG - Default = {0.0, 0.0, 1.0, 1.0};
  • float2 CenterSrcXY - Default = {0.5, 0.5};
  • float DirectionSrc - Default = 0; // In Degrees - 0-Right, 90-Up etc.
  • float DirectionDst - Default = 0; // In Degrees - 0-Right, 90-Up etc.
  • int Reflections - Default = 4; // 1-10 is reasonable
  • float Zoom - Default = 1.0;
  • float4 BackgroundColor - Default = {-1, 0, 1, 1}; // -1 means no
  • bool UseBackgroundImage - Default = false; // Else use attached image
  • bool UseEllipse - Default = false; // Else rectangle
  • bool ClampEdges - Default = false; // Else repeat
  • bool CopyMode - Default = false; // Else Reflect
  • float TransparencyK - Default = 1.0; // Transparency of the RectangleDst area

You must have ShaderTFX installed and operating. Expired or In Trial OK for the Calculated effects. Registered or in Trial required for the Masked effects.

Masks are created as Black and White with gradients where the Black shows the clip and White shows the clip faded to the BackgroundColor with BackGroundLevel intensity. Paint.net or Gimp work nicely to create these masks. Start with a white image at the aspect ratio of the project, and add black as desired. Gausian blur the whole thing or use Gimps Airbrush for adding or both.

See the XML files for example Vignette Effects. The DPL VignetteCustom FX.xml file can be used to modify/add your XML parameters.

The XML parameters you can modify are:

  • float RadiusInner - Default = 0.35 ; Inside this will be no change in clip color
  • float RadiusOuter - Default = 0.65 ; Outside of this will have clip color faded to BGColor
  • color BackgroundColor - Default = blue ; The BGColor
  • float BackGroundLevel - Default = 0.75 ; The level of fade
  • float2 XYCenter - Default = 0.5, 0.5; Position of the center of the radii
  • float AspectRatio - Default = 1.0 ; Set to AR of project to get a circle e.g. 1.3333, 1.7777
