How to Make Custom Effects?
Posted: 15 Sep 2016 12:42 AM
I was attempting to find colour filters and tints for WMM 6 but all the downloads I see on the forums are dead links. In WMM 2.6, we could make our own XML files for custom effects, but in attempting to do this for WMM 6, nothing happens. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, as I see in other threads that the instructions are simply to create a Notepad file and save it as .xml in the AddOnTFX folder, which is how it was done in WMM 2.6 as well.

So what am I missing?

I am using Windows 10 for the record.

See this article for how to create custom effects in WMM 6.0. As you'll see, the xml coding varies a good bit from that for WMM 2.6. Post back with the name of the specific effects you were trying to download and I'll check to see if i have a copy I could send you.

Thanks for the link resource!

I was trying to create colour filters that are mentioned in this thread:
http://www.windowsmoviemakers.net/Forums/ShowPost.aspx?&PostID=111935

I don't think I could find a download for that specifically, so that's why I was asking about adding custom effects in this case.

But I was also trying to add effects such as these:

Color Glow Effects (PatrickL Add-ons) -- Cause certain colors to glow:

Color Key Effects (PatrickL Add-ons) -- Filter to gray except for certain key colors

Here's download links for the two PatrickL add-ons:

Glow Effects

Color Key Effects

I believe a registered or expired version of ShaderTFX is required for these effects.
