Custom Contrast Effects For Windows Movie Maker 6.0

Preview Blaine's Contrast EffectsWindows Movie Maker should have come with some standard effects to decrease/increase the contrast of your video. However, since it doesn't, I had to create some of my own.

Note: These effects take 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 Contrast Effects (32-bit)
Blaine's Contrast Effects (64-bit)
After installing, you'll have a couple new effects for decreasing contrast and a couple for increasing contrast. If you need a stronger effect, apply the effect several times. You can also customize the .xml if you want other contrast settings. Enjoy!

If you have any questions, feel free to post them in the original forum post that inspired these effects.
