Custom Bubble Warp Effect for WMM 6.0

Preview Blaine's Bubble Warp EffectI was playing around with Windows Movie Maker 6.0 and came up with this custom "Bubble Warp" effect. It's rather subtle and looks best when applied to pictures with short durations. If you apply it to video or to longer duration photos, you may not even notice the effect.

Note: This effect takes advantage of the effects architecture of Windows Movie Maker 6.0 and therefore will not work in XP.

There are two installers depending on whether you are running WMM 6.0 on a 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows. The installer will put the necessary files into, C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared.
Windows Movie Maker 6.0:
Blaine's Bubble Warp Effect (32-bit)
Blaine's Bubble Warp Effect (64-bit)
After installing, you'll have a new effect called "Blaine's Bubble Warp". Enjoy!
