  • TG Plug-In for Windows Movie Maker

    Windows Movie Maker (WMM) can have additional effects or transitions through adding plug-ins

    Website windowsmoviemakers.net has one page with it all on, has at least 50 free plug-ins for WMM
    http://www.windowsmoviemakers.net/Fo...x?PostID=74030

    2 movies to show you how to add a plug-in to WMM
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z1EeT...watch_response
    http://media.putfile.com/xml-how-to-add-one

    windowsmoviemakers.net has a pan.crop that does really work for BF movies
    http://www.tacticalsites.com/~explod...panandcrop.wmv

    I have adapted existing pan/crop code for the purposes of making movies for Batllefield

    Movie to give you examples of each effect
    http://www.tacticalsites.com/~explod...PlugInVer1.wmv

    please give this a go and tell me how it works for you and any improvements you would want to see

    Here's the code for version 1

    This is really outstanding stuff silver. Thanks so much. I will be seeing if i can break it over the next few days. :)

    a quick note,
    being able to pan back out gracefully would be nice. for each pan effect, that zooms in, have one that zooms back out.

      I spent some time on this as a challenge and to help bridge the gap for TG movie makers. I estimate that most movie makers only want to spend a few hrs in one evening editing and windows movie maker should be good for that.... and free !

        Re: TG Plug-In for Windows Movie Maker

        to get this into windows movie maker:

        1. create a folder in your X:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared\ folder called AddOnTFX
        2. copy xml code.
        3. paste into a notepad document
        4. select the pulldown menu FILE and select SAVE AS
        5. type TGpancrop.xml into the filename field
        6. select save as type ALL FILES
        7. save into the AddOnTFX folder you created in step 1.

        When you start up windows movie maker, the effects will be available.
        the above steps are demonstrated in the videos that Silver linked in the original post.

            I'm trying to work out the pan out
            But at least as it is, there is something workable

                  I'm still working on this but I've hit a wall, currently it uses "Simple3D" that always takes it commands releative to (and starting at) the centre of the screen. A pan out from minimap would have to start at the top right and not the center. I've not given up but I'll have to take a completely different route.

                    There is nothing in the default code to allow panning back to centre
                    There are two companies that have written custom .dll to enable better panning

                    This companies panning is choppy and awkard to code
                    http://www.rehanfx.org/

                    This companies panning is pretty good and I can code a .xml file for there $14 plug in. That is what i am working on

                      I did some quick test of your plugins and rehans, I can tell no difference in quality at all. I think yours are better since they focus in on relevent info rather than just a predetermined section of the screen.

                        PIXELAN is a no go
                        If you have the pan pack E2 but not the panzoommaker then there is a big cross in the middle of the zoom. Custom xml code works with a DLL object that is part of the panzoom maker. To buy the panzoommaker you have to buy every effect pack and its like $60. Not worth it when you can get a superior pan from say Sony at a $100 package and sony is superior at everything else as well, including having multiple timelines so its easy to cut different pieces of footage together.

                        I won't be doing any more work on this

                        If somebody wants to pick this up they can. Look at the Microsoft guide to custom effects in movie maker

                        The first post in this thread is still a good *FREE* option that allows zoom into the key parts of the screen that apply to battlefield.

                          These two use a grid system that is good for photos, as the edge of photos is not that relevant normally. But for our purposes its the info at the edge or corner that we want to zoom in on eg the minimap. Their standard zooms don't give us anything close to what we want.

                            the thing with rehan's zoom is he states that a DLL included in the package improves visual quality when zooming. In the tests I ran, there is no difference between the visual quality of the zoom you provided and the zoom his package provides.


                            your is superior for our purposes due to the fact that it focuses in on exactly what you desire.
