Making your own visual effects without special equipment

Most computers today come with a video editing software that at least has basic functions that one would need to create many different kinds of visual effects. All you need for the two most common visual effects are a computer with a movie maker and a digital camera that shoots video. The most commonly used visual effects are stop-motion and Jump cut editing.

To create stop-motion of say your pen opening itself you would take a series of photos with a slight change in position in every shot. Then at the end you take all the shots and play them together at about .5-1 second per image and it will look like the object is moving on its own. This is particularly useful for when you want to make a person look like they are jumping into an object or flying.

Jump cut, is the most commonly used technique for visual effects. What you do is film the person or object that you want to disappear, then stop filming remove them from the camera's view and the continue filming. When the two shots are played together as one then it appears that the person or object disappears. You can use this technique to make someone appear and disappear anywhere in your shots.

Windows XP: How to adjust visual effects

Windows XP, while not as visually appealing as Vista's Aero interface, does have the capability to produce some neat visual effects. These effects range from smooth edges to small animations, and they are typically all enabled by default. However, if you have at some point disabled them or if they have been turned off by another user (or if you want to turn them off) here are the steps to adjust Windows XP's visual effects:

A. Right click on My Computer (either from the Start menu or from the desktop).

B. Select Properties.

C. Go to the Advanced tab.

D. In the Performance section, click the Settings button.

E. The list of visual effects will appear. Put a check mark next to the effects you want enabled, and remove the check mark next to any effects you want to disable.

F. When you have made your selections, click OK or Apply to save the changes.

You can also turn all of the effects on at once by choosing "Adjust for best appearance," or turn all of them off by choosing "Adjust for best performance." The first option on the screen, "Let Windows choose what's best for my computer," allows the system to make the selections for you. (Typically, if you choose this option, all of the effects will be enabled.)

If your computer is running slower than you'd like, and you don't really care about window animations or icon shadows, turning all of these features off might free up a little bit of system memory. You can always try one setting or the other and then come back in later to change it.

Why are visual effects so widely used in filmaking?

Filmmakers are using more visual effects in movies as they tend to be cheaper than creating a real life version and they cut out the need to use dangerous stunts.

How to eliminate the needless visual effects for better windows performance?

Today tip will help you to increase the performance of your computer by eliminating the needless visual effects. By default windows XP gives you many options in the graphics fields to enjoy maximum graphics. For example, you can add pictures on folders and drop shadow on icon to give you better look but it will effect on the performance of your computer, especially on an older computer. Window XP has many default graphics which is not so useful for a common user, if you re-adjust these graphics then there is less effect on the user activities but the performance of computer will be increase tremendously. Here I will tell you how to choose:
To edit these settings, first you should log onto your computer with administrative rights.
Click Start button and type sysdm.cpl in Run box then press Ok button for next.

Here a dialog box will appear with the title "System Properties", select "Advanced" tab.

Here click on Settings button under Performance area.

When you have done then "Performance Options" dialog box will appear with different options. Here select the Visual Effects tab and choose the settings you want to use for the appearance and performance of windows on this computer.

Turns off all the visual effects in the option of "Adjust for best performance" and when you select the option "Adjust for best appearance" it will gives you opposite effect ,Everything will turns on. Selecting "Let Windows choose what's best for my computer" triggers, as you might guess, different choices on different computers. And to pick and choose individual effects yourself, choose "custom" then decide which ones you want.

3. Click on a search result listing under Control Panel group that named as the following:

4. An "Aero - Troubleshoot computer problems" wizard dialog will appear. Click on Next button.


5. The troubleshooting wizard will try to detect any problem by running a series of checks against various components required to make Aero works and running, such as video memory, Desktop Windows Manager (DWM) service, color depth, theme, power settings and etc. At the end of the analysis, the wizard will attempt to fix the issues related to Aero service and restart the Aero feature.


Tip: If there is still items that are marked with red cross which indicates is the problems that prevent Aero from working properly, fix the issues and then rerun the "Find and fix problems with transparency and other visual effects" troubleshooting wizard again.
