Windows Movie Maker effects.

Postby kiaraiskiara » Sat Mar 10, 2007 11:46 am

Question:
Is there any way for me to get the effect of a flashing image/clip (sort of like a strobe light) on WMM? Or to make a scene play backwards/on rewind? If not, does anyone know of a program that does, in fact have those features?

(Hope this isn't some sort of repeat. owO;; )

Thank you for your help!

i'm sure there isn't such a thing as strobe light in WMM , about rewind,maybe there is a way,but i don't know about such thing ~.~

as for such features , i'm sure that Premiere has both of it.
:D I like laughter ;DD

Yey! Really?

I need to look into that, thank you so much! : D

For my latest idea the strobe/skip effect is really important. (Techno song : P )

I'm going to the Premere subforum to ask around, thank you again! x3

i dont know about rewind,

but if you use a solid color jpg you can make cuts and insert the jpeg where you want it to flash... just make sure its really short... so yea, you can do strobe in wmm.

you can do the same with an image or a piece of video.

Exactly. I want it to be like rapid fire, and I cannot seem to cut WMM clips that small. : P

i did this once in WMM. To get uberfast flashes i did the video then white image cut pattern (jadziadax's method) then exported my resultant clip then reimported and applied the speed up effect to the clip. *presto fast white flashy effect in for WMM

if youre still interested in other programs though the ones that you can get the most help with around here are 1. Premeire 2. Sony Vegas and 3. Magix (and the cheapest too)

but i wish you luck, purge has an interesting method O:

for ur reverse thing go here [url]rehanfx.org[/url] about ur flash thingy...if u showed a clip or a pic i could understand better maybe u could split a clip one second in a vid and then do brightness increase or fade in from white

You could cut the clip to match the song and put a fade out black, that's what I do to get flashes, but it is hard, since my WMM is breaking down on me right now :cry:

You can make one with XML - There is plenty of guides around internet.

You can make a flashing strobelight effect by cutting up a scene and using the Fade out/in to/from white effect on each cut up piece ... the smaller the cut up scenes the faster the strobe light effect.

It works well for me :)

With WMM2 I always used the frame advance tool to go one frame ahead and then cut, making the clip defined as only one frame.
