1.Re: WMM not recognising MTS files from camera?
Posted by considerate_guy on 12/18/2011 1:40:35 PM
Download Freemake Video Converter and convert the .mts files into .wmv files. WMM will open those without problem.

It's not complicated. Freemake is really simple and straight-forward. You can do 1 file or a batch of files. Pick the output format as 'To WMV', click the Convert button and it will go to work.

Editing .wmv files gives you the best experience in Movie Maker, so I would highly recommend it.
3.Re: Best settings when converting from MTS to WMV (any-video converter)
Posted by considerate_guy on 1/10/2012 3:39:50 PM
I generally use Freemake Video Converter and it does a good job of matching the input settings to the output settings. It's essentially automatic.

If you are trying another converter, pick a high bitrate setting and match the same resolution and audio settings of the input file for the WMV. Be aware that not every converter does a good job of creating a 100% compatible WMV file. Others have noted problems with .wmv files from 'Any Video Converter', so good luck.
4.Re: Should I use Panasonic's software - or third party?
Posted by considerate_guy on 10/4/2012 10:16:42 AM
For my Panasonic, I've just used the standard import and gotten an .mts file. I've skipped the HDWriter software. The additional files have metadata that might be useful for the HDWriter software, but isn't really necessary for other editors.

One thing that the Panasonic does is it breaks long segments into several files. I think the HDWriter software will recombine those, but just taking the individual files will not. I've not found that to be a problem, but something to ...

6.Re: MY TRIAL VERSION FOR REHAN'S PACKAGE IS GONE AND I WANT ALL THE EFFECTS ON THERE FOR FREE!
Posted by considerate_guy on 3/27/2008 6:39:58 PM
Many of the effects/transitions in ShaderTFX still work after the expiration, but certain things that use images (e.g. the wipes and much of Patrick's add-ons) won't work.

My apologies, I thought you were saying you could download a cracked version of Windows Vista/XP for free.

Windows Movie Maker is "free" assuming you have paid for a copy of Windows.
8.Re: Snow effect in MM2012?
Posted by considerate_guy on 12/20/2014 11:48:39 AM
It's not possible. Microsoft has only allowed for customization of the "classic" versions of Movie Maker, up through Windows Movie Maker 6.0 on Vista. The winter pack was only available on WMM 2.x from XP.

Even if it were possible to create such an add-on, Microsoft doesn't provide a way to add custom transitions, effects or titles to MM 2012.

The best I can suggest is perhaps loading WMM 2.6 and then see if the winter pack will load on that. It's in ...
9.Re: REHAN does not care!
Posted by considerate_guy on 10/31/2010 11:25:22 AM
First, by your own admission you are on an expired version of Windows 7. I'm not sure what features get disabled when you are in the expired period, but it is very possible that certain video codecs (like for DVD viewing, HD editing, etc.) get disabled... not sure, but it is a possiblity.

Second, do you know if you are running a 32-bit copy of Windows or a 64-bit? Your original query said you were having trouble with 64-bit, but here you said you are installing a 32-bit ...

11.Re: New Transitions pack: ShaderTFX with PIP + Chroma + Gradient Wipes
Posted by considerate_guy on 7/25/2007 8:23:21 PM
Rehan, I'm curious what you changed. For my package, I'm thinking of putting the TFX.dll in a different folder rather than Shared; what about you?
12.Re: New Transitions pack: ShaderTFX with PIP + Chroma + Gradient Wipes
Posted by considerate_guy on 7/26/2007 11:40:35 AM
Rehan, I was able to remove the /GL flag and was then able to compile with the older non-SP1 library. I was also told that the group is working on an SP1 library, but that was how I was able to build a release DLL.

My package currently puts the DLL and the FX in the Shared directory. But I wonder if Vista prevents downloads from doing that. I'm going to try putting the DLL somewhere else and see if that helps.

Posted by considerate_guy on 7/26/2007 3:53:06 PM
MMK, the custom transitions that Rehan and I are trying to make require a custom DLL (in addition to the .dll for icons) to also be loaded and registered. In both cases, this is getting put in a separate directory (not AddOnTFX) and must be registered. I suspect that you already had this registered on your system which is why it would work for you, but it wouldn't resolve the issue for anyone else.
16.Re: New Transitions pack: ShaderTFX with PIP + Chroma + Gradient Wipes
Posted by considerate_guy on 7/26/2007 5:44:42 PM
MMK, remember that you manually changed your permissions on various WMM folders? I think that is what is different perhaps.

Please run it by Rehan first before posting... his e-mail is on his website (www.rehanfx.org)

Posted by considerate_guy on 7/26/2007 7:43:03 PM
In general, a software package should install without needing a user to make such drastic changes to permissions on their Program Files/Movie Maker/Shared folders. Our desire is to get a way to install our transitions that doesn't require user interaction, especially something that goes around all of Vista's protections on your Program Files folders, etc.

You might want to add a guide for how to undo all these changes later, once the workaround is no longer needed.

Posted by considerate_guy on 7/27/2007 6:15:25 PM
Incidentally, has anyone tried Rehan's repackaged installer? Perhaps all these machinations to change permissions are moot with the new installer. I'd hold off on making system changes until you have tried Rehan's new installer.

SisterAlways,

Can you try my installer now and see if it works or not?

I think he is talking about my transitions: view post 131510
22.Re: New Transitions pack: ShaderTFX with PIP + Chroma + Gradient Wipes
Posted by considerate_guy on 8/9/2007 12:50:03 PM
The issue shouldn't be with permissions because my installer elevates them during installation. The issue, as Rehan has already noted, is with dependent files. On our systems we have a full DirectX SDK and the Visual Studio files, but most people don't. For our DLLs to register correctly, your system must have the correct DirectX runtime DLL, and the Visual C++ Runtime modules.

Posted by considerate_guy on 9/18/2007 12:54:12 AM
Rehan... I just installed build 11 but it's coming up saying I have 0 days left in the trial. I wonder if it has something to do with where I installed it... I have it on my V:\ drive and I told it to go into V:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared, rather than in the RehanFX folder. I think that's also why the wipes aren't working.

Okay... I'll try again putting it in the default directory.

Edit: Well I don't seem to be getting the registration error anymore, ...

Any answer on the wipes and why they aren't appearing? Is it related to the zero day bug?
25.Re: New Transitions pack: ShaderTFX with PIP + Chroma + Gradient Wipes
Posted by considerate_guy on 9/19/2007 3:47:21 PM
I agree that the transitions requiring TextureMaps are failing. Chroma is working fine for me; I just tested both a green and blue screen clip.
