Those particular effects come exclusive with Windows XP Media Center Edition PCs. However more basic zoom xmls have been written by various people so you might want to use the search option to search the forums. You can also check out <a href="http://www.rehanfx.org/panzoom.htm">Rehan's Pan Zoom Package</a>. If you select the freeware/trial version you will have the high quality filter for 15 days. After it expires the effects still work but the filter is gone and results in poorer image ...

It's difficult to create a title overlay like that but you could try combining a few effects together to pull it off. This isn't exactly the best method but here's what I tried out. First familiarze yourself with the xml process ;). You can do that by creating a folder called "AddOnTFX" in this folder (C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared). Then open up Notepad to copy, paste, and save the xmls by saving it like this "name.xml". The whole process is outlined on the page in my signature. ...

Fun Art Effects! 10/22/2005 5:55:07 PM   (Total replies: 7)
I was playing around with the existing art effects that movie maker has and just thought I'd post most of them for reference or for those who don't have them. Counldn't figure out the icons so left them the same. You can see <a href="http://media.putfile.com/Fun-Art-Effects47">this</a> video to watch some of the effects in action. Have fun and feel free to play around with the control values! <color="blue"><TransitionsAndEffects Version="1.0"> <Effects> <EffectDLL ...

You mean that the speed of the footage would increase right :)? Just simply keep adding increase speed to the appropriate number of times till you reach what you're looking for. Don't worry if the footage starts to appear choppy in the preview window (you can always save as a movie to make sure everything is running smoothly ;). See how it works out for you.

Darn I keep forgetting to post things tonight :P, ehh-hem the increase speed option or speed up, double is in your Effects folder when you open up movie maker.

The camera overlay can be done with a title overlay or PIP Plus ;)(if I have time later I will try and come up with a version) and the xml for the shake effect is this (credit of course to the the programmer know-it-alls on this one ;): <color="blue"><TransitionsAndEffects Version="1.0"> <Effects> <EffectDLL guid="{ADEADEB8-E54B-11d1-9A72-0000F875EADE}"> <Effect name="shake" iconid="31" comment="shake film"> <Param name="FilmJerkiness" value="255" /> </Effect> </EffectDLL> ...

Hurray I can help you :)! I sat down and opened up photoshop and put together a basic REC screen and wrote a PIP+ xml. First of all you need to download the demo version or purchase Rehan's PIP+ at this <a href="http://www.rehanfx.org/pipplus.htm">link</a> (don't worry about when the demo expires it still lets you keep static effects such as borders or repositioning your video on the screen). The next is of course the <b>xml process</b> which as I said all is explained in the link on my ...

^Yes I mistankenly added unnecessary lines from Rehan's handy work so yes my mistake :P. But I tested the effect and it worked just fine fortunately ;). Thanks for pointing it out.

^Yes again my absent mindedness at times gets the best of me :P.....and as far as the effect I can see you're absolutely correct now that I've researched what was up and down so to speak. I must admit my experience with xml is a few months worth so I am still diligently applying myself and not a relaxed master just yet lol. Thanks as always to you seasoned pros I'm glad at least this person can actually use and enjoy this new effect and helping me to remember my xml abcs lol ;)......
