Negative and Bloom Effects for Windows Movie Maker 6.0

Blaine's Bloom/Negative EffectsHere's a couple new effects for the Vista version of Movie Maker. The first two effects are called 'Bloom In' and 'Bloom Out'. They create a bright glare to come from lighter items in the video. If you use Bloom Out at the end of a clip, and Bloom In at the beginning of the next, you can get a cool transition, that you've probably seen a lot on TV. The other effect is a Negative effect which reverses all the color values. Preview a video of the Bloom and Negative effects

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 Bloom and Negative Effects (32-bit)
Blaine's Bloom and Negative Effects (64-bit)
After installing, you'll have the new effects the next time you start up Movie Maker.
