I thought these were already part of the list (at least I missed them last time I looked)... a couple little handy gadgets from Xiberpix.

Sqirlz Morph (morph from one picture to another), and
Sqirlz Water Reflections (make animated puddles and lake surfaces; rain, snow effects)

quick vid using the morph effect:

The next big thing: MOVIESTORM!

I have 2 programs to add which are good programs to have with working with Moviestorm. The programs are:

K-Lite Mega Codec Pack located at http://www.codecguid...atures_mega.htm . This is a pack full of audio/video codecs. Codecs like Dixv, Windows Media, Xvid, X-264, AC3/DTS, MP3, etc. Apple Quicktime is not included, must be download separately.

QuickTime Alternative is a cut-down version of Apple Quicktime. You can get it from http://www.codecguide.com/about_qt.htm .

I use both of these programs and they are very good programs.

Conversations Network Levelator is great for people who, like me, don't have all of their actors recording at the same place. It does exactly what it says it does: it bumps everyone's voice up to the same level, but without things that should be soft being way louder than they should be.

What an excellent and, from the looks of it, exhaustive list of usable and free software. Thanks Forbiden1 for taking the time to collate it.

Here are some more good freeware/open source programs to help with Moviestorm development.

Xnview is a freeware image viewer. It can also convert between different formats. Over 400 formats are supported. You can get this program from http://www.xnview.com/en/index.html .

Madtracker is a freeware module (aka mods) music tracker. Module music is different from midi because module music uses real samples of instruments. This program can only export to ogg format.

LeoCad is a freeware 3D design software to create Lego models. You can get LeoCad from http://www.leocad.org/win.htm . LeoCad requires the Ldraw library which you must download from http://www.ldraw.org/. Now, LeoCad can export to 3Ds which is good. This program can help Moviestorm users to make Lego toys which you can use in your movies.

Debug Mode Wax has a number of post production video effects. And while it might not be the prettiest interface or the easiest to use, it does a lot and it's free.

Great post I hope some of these video editing programs will help me out instead of resorting to using Windows Movie Maker.

I can't believe I figured out that program when I was just 15. Its pretty complex in some spots.

I have a few more freeware programs that might help people when developing Moviestorm Movies.

Lsmaker is a freeware program for creating Lightsaber/light sword attacks. Might be of use to people who create Sci-Fi movies. You can download it from http://lsmaker.uw.hu/page.php .

Lstext is a freeware program for creating scrolling text such as the text scene in the Star Wars movies. You can also get this from http://lsmaker.uw.hu/page.php .

SSbump is a free program for creating bump maps and normal maps. This program was designed mainly with Half-life 2 in mind but it might have a use for Moviestorm. One problem though, it only supports TGA pic files.

Psycle is a free modular music production software program. This is a powerful program. It has a good amount of effects. This program supports VST Plugins so you can add more effects to the program. You can download the program from http://psycle.pastno....org/portal.php . Also download some songs from the website to see what this program can do. It can also render your music as a wave file.

Balabolka is a freeware text to speech program which you can download from http://www.cross-plu...m/balabolka.htm .

Mediacoder is a free audio/video converter. This program is constantly updated a lot and supports many audio/video formats. Also, if you have an Nvidia card, this program supports CUDA acceleration .You can get the program from http://www.mediacoderhq.com/ .

I found another freeware program. It's called ScapeMaker and it's a landscape creator. I tried out the program & it's easy to use. There is one program though, you can't export to a graphics file, you have to render the 3D pic and select fullscreen then use a screen capture prog to capture your landscape. Other than that, it's a good program. You can get it from http://wareseeker.co...-1.3.zip/364780 .

Also I like would to give people a very good freeware site called Primewares which you can access at http://primewares.com/ . It has over 36,000 freeware/open source programs. You might find some software there that you can use in making your movies.

Here are some I use smile.gif

The Kmplayer (free)

http://download.cnet...4-10659939.html

You can even crude edit .avi with it using the capture option


For audio too you can compose your own stuff with ModPlug Tracker

http://sourceforge.n...ojects/modplug/

been using this one for years, and it is open source. It also supports midi.


need some tunes in a hurry..try this site

http://modarchive.org/

the extensions aka: it. mod. .etc .xm will play and can be edited in modplug tracker and others

some are pretty good tunes, and are sort of public domain providing you give the artist credit
