This is a little collection of video-plugins for Pinnacles software Studio 9 (and 10). It is an early beta-release of the plugins, so use them at your own risc. Feel free to send feedback and comments. The plugin was tested under Windows XP with Studio 9.4 - but most of the effects should also run under Studio 10. Programming these video-effects is an hobby of mine, so the plugin can be used freely as defined by the Gnu Public License (version 2 or later, see file COPYING).

Attention: if you encounter watermarks from Pinnacle when using my plugins, just update to the latest version of JPsEffects!
A big thank you for your e-mails and help - especially by the people behind the Declic Video-FX Website. With your help I was able to create a version of JPsEffects for Studio 17 (and 16?). It's great to see that people still like the effects after so many years! A special thank you goes to Saby for the french translation and lots of bugfixes.
It took many hours of work to produce JPsEffects. If you use my plugins often and like them, I'd appreciate a small donation.
This donation could be nice emails, postcards or money.
Money can be donated using PayPal (www.paypal.com) using my email address jpfamilie-riegel.de (be careful when using PayPal: they will never send you any email where you have to enter your password and they will never send you emails with attachments).
To install the plugin just download and execute the installation Program1 (see below).
For a manual installation open the Source-ZIP-Archive and copy JPsEffects.fex into the directory Plugins\RTFx below your Studio 9 path (Usually this will be C:\Program Files\Studio 9\Plugins\RTFx). Copy every .xml-files included in the archive (eg. JPsEffects.xml) to the directory XML just below the RTFx-directory (just if you want to use that effect). Also copy JPsEffects_EN.chm into this XML-directory. After restarting Studio 9 you will see the new video effects. (Attention: you will see the new effects only with Studio version 18.104.22.168 (beta) or later!)
|JPsEffects||1.1.8||27.12.2013||This plugin contains the following effects: Color adjust, Color change, Color change 2, Color Glow, Cut, De-Interlace, Dia Zoom, Filter, Gear, Kaleidoscope, Lens, Lighthouse, Mirror, Eraser, Spiral, Transform, Transform2, Transparency, TV Interference, Waves, Zoom, Zoom2, Zoom and move.|
|Color adjust||0.1||14.2.2005||This effect can be used for some advanced color adjustments. You can perform color adjustments (linear and gamma correction) for each color channel (red, green, and blue) separately. Additionally, the brightness, contrast and color intensity can be adjusted.|
|Color change||0.3||8.4.2004||With ColorChange you can change one single color of the input video. Additionally, all other colors can be changed to black and white. Attention: the user interface of this effect might change in the future.|
|Color change 2||0.3||16.10.2004||Like ColorChange, but with a different set of parameters.|
|Color Glow||0.3||23.5.2004||This effect can be used to let something (more concrete: to let a specific color) glow. Eg., you can simulate a "Star-Wars" Laser-sword with this effect (see description). But also other things like hands or lamps can be made glowing.|
|Cut||0.2||17.3.2006||Cut and raise part of the video.|
|De-Interlace||0.1||7.5.2005||De Interlace interlaced videos.|
|Filter||0.7||30.3.2006||Filter can be used to enhance (or modify) an image. This Filter-effect consists of some standard filters to sharpen, soften, or distort the input video.|
|Gear||0.1||15.3.2006||Show only a part of the video clip in form of a (moving) toothed wheel.|
|Kaleidoscope||0.2||20.4.2004||This effect simulates a kaleidoscope. A video-clip can be split into several segments, and one of these segments is copied or mirrored to the other segments.|
|Lens||0.3||18.3.2006||Simple Lens effect: zoom in or out parts of the video.|
|Lighthouse||0.1||8.7.2005||Cast rays of rotating light over your video.|
|Mirror||0.7o||19.3.2006||Simple mirroring of the source clip. It is useful, if objects in the video move to the wrong direction. You can mirror the video vertically, horizontally, and in the middle of the image. Mirroring in the middle leads to an effect like a kaleidoscope.|
This plugin is mostly obsolete. Use Transform or Kaleidoscope instead.
|TV Interference||0.1||5.3.2006||Adds a strong rustle to the video like a TV interference.|
|Transform||0.8||2.4.2005||Transform can be used to change the input video using linear transformations. With these transformations you can e.g. zoom, move, rotate, or shear a video or still image. Up to 6 basic transformations can be combined and be applied together. This plugin makes the effects Zoom, Zoom2 and (partially) Mirror obsolete.|
|Transform2||0.5||2.4.2005||Additionally to the Transform effect, Transform2 specifies points in time, where the transformations should be valid.|
|Transparency||0.3||2.7.2005||Use this effect to make part of the video transparent.|
|Waves||0.1||10.3.2006||Stretches the video clip like waves|
|Zoom||0.5o||7.4.2004||Zoom into a video or an image. You can enter a zoom factor and an offset from the top left corner of the input (in %).|
This plugin is obsolete. Use Transform instead.
|Zoom2||0.5o||7.4.2004||Non-uniform stretching of a video. Parameters to this effect are margins of the input video (in %). These margins are cut away and the rest of the input is stretched to fit the original size.|
This plugin is obsolete. Use Transform instead.
|Zoom and move||0.5o||7.4.2004||Just like move, but a second zoom factor can be given. This second zoom is valid at the end of the video clip. With "Zoom and Move" you can simulate a camera moving into or over a still image.|
This plugin is obsolete. Use Transform2 instead.
|Eraser||0.1||21.3.2006||Erase parts of the video.|
