Default GiraFX lib released! v1.01 -> v1.02

Hiho!

At last the GiraFX lib is released! For those who may have missed my previous announcement, GiraFX is the must have library of video presets that improves significantly your video experience in Reaper, so much actually that I created an HD demo video to help grasp how much this represents a fundamental contribution.


***main features ***
  • Introduction of a video mixer that make video mixing behave almost like audio
  • positions & dimensions of video objects in % of the selected canvas or source size
  • extremely advanced and flexible positioning system for video elements
  • consistent transparency handling with non leaky crossfades
  • text: shared style definition, flexible text alignment, ability to display only one line at a time out of a large text
  • up to 9 sub-canvas (aka video mixers) that can sub-divide your main visual space into regions

The library is *almost* free and it also comes with a full set of tutorials (soon to be completed). You can optain it here:

*** update: the lesson "Fundamentals" is now part of the free preview, was supposed to be this way yesterday!

*** update: X-Raym added a very good description and context on Realinks.net

*** update 2023-10-16 v1.02 released: added "mask YUV" & corrected small calculation glitch in "text renderer"

*** 2023-10-17: added GiraFX list of presets in this post
*** 2023-11-06: tutorial 4: Positioning, Sizing & Sub-Mixers released

Default Announcement: new GiraFX starter kit available for low price

Great news for those who want to try GiraFX but are not quite sure they would use it all: I selected a subset of the most essential functions that are suffisant for simple to moderatly complex projects. It includes the related tutorials. Just look for the "Starter Kit" version (starting at 5$ CAD)

What is the difference between the 5ca$ and 20ca$ versions?

Very good question! I'm glad you asked. Here is a more detailed description:

The 5$ version includes only the most essential presets that are suffisant to make simpler projects yet with the following benefits:
  • Consistent and non-leaky cross-fades
  • Full collection of frames (aka borders)
  • Easy positionning/sizing of visual elements inidividually and/or by groups
  • Full text support with fully/semi transparent boxes over a background
  • Text scrolling line by line from a single source for lyrics videos
  • Transitions masks: enhanced horizontal/vertical wipes, vignettes
  • Super easy chromakey transparency (aka green screen) in RGB mode
  • Basic color/image controls
The 20$ version adds the following functionalities to the starter version:
  • Advanced positionings [grid and flower] for object groups
  • Textured and gradient backgrounds
  • Geometry corrections and advanced size/color/contrast controls
  • Video stack controls that allow reusing a source multiple times
  • Chromakey (aka green screen) in YUV mode for better visual separation
  • Animated transition based on b/w source video from existing libraries on the Net
  • Shapes circle/polygon for visual compositions or "surgical masking"
  • Full collection of FXs translated for GiraFX + Random deformations.
  • Video stack analyzer

Thanks! Enormous is the word! I thought of giving up a some point because the time investment was too great but the appeal of the challenge won over my doubts!

Default tutorial 2 released & v1.01 update

Two good news today!



1- Tutorial 2 "Projects Guidelines & Video Mixer Transparency Magic" is released as of now.

2- During the process of creating tutorial 2, I found a long sought solution for making the "chromakey YUV" preset a mask (much simpler to use) instead of a pre-mixer. As a reminder, chromakey in YUV mode gives much better results. This solution is now the new preset called "girafx:mask/chromakey (YUV)" that makes, of course, its previous pre-mixer version obsolete. Library has been updated accordingly, v1.01

Default Minor bug in girafx:text renderer

oups!

I discovered a miscalculation in the text vertical offset when using top padding but good news, I already corrected the formula. I'll issue a new update RPL in the coming days after a bit more testing.
