Techniques used
Image
'E' denotes that the technique is used only in entrance/exit effect that comes along with the karatemplate

Some notes for newcomers:
  • First, you need Aegisub version 2.1.x and above in order to run these templates (in attached files). Aegisub version 1.x is not supported.
  • When you open these files in Aegisub, there will be prompt asking you whether you want to load the associated video; it is recommended to select Yes. You may select No and load your own video but if you do so please do not forget to File > Properties > Resolution > From video
  • After you open the files in Aegisub, go to menu "Automation" > "Apply karaoke template" to have Aegisub generate the effects.
  • You may want to read more about Auto4 kara-templater in other threads in order to be able to modify these templates for your purpose.


Spinning Blob
Attached file: spinblob.ass

My first kara-templater effect: spinning blob. Basically blob spinning in front of syllables

Put "mainkara" in actor field for lines that you want to apply. And skip the last one (the "template pre-line fxgroup main keeptags" one) if you use other line-per-syllable kara-templater effect ...

UPDATED Sep 08, 2008: fixed a bug that caused the blob to disappear if there are blank syllables. thanks to zheo for pointing it out

I just can't stop karacoding, can I?  ;)
So here are my new kara-templater effects: "Sliding \kf" and "Ephemeral \kf"

Sliding \kf
Attached file: sliding_kf.ass

Basically it's like \kf, but unlike \kf where once highlighted a syllable stays highlighted, with sliding \kf the highlighted region *slides* from a syllable to the next one, hence the name :)

Ephemeral \kf
Attached file: ephemeral_kf.ass

It's so similar to sliding \kf that one can hardly tell the difference. But instead of the whole highlight region slides in-sync to the next syllable, with ephemeral \kf the left side of the highlight region accelerates in-between two syllables, thus that side of the region reaches the next syllable faster than the other side, giving an effect as if the \kf is ephemeral (temporary, transient, fleeting etc .. see dictionary)

----------------------
Load sliding_ephemeral_kf.ass to compare the two effects.

p/s: the kara-templaters make very extensive use of animated rectangle clipping technique (\t(t1,t2,\clip(x1,y1,x2,y2)) using simple maths used in crazy madness formulas. As a positive result, they generate only one extra line for each line plus the stripped version of the original line, so that makes two output lines for each input line!  8)

UPDATE: i've uploaded new versions of the templates with updated effect (underline for the highlight region) plus refactored \t\clip tag generation into a function to make the codes easier to read. To those 2-3 people who downloaded the old files please download again.

woow..nice FXs. I probed the Spinnin' Blob FX, but the star disappears when there are 2 times continues in the same line

Example:

{\k43}ka{\k28}wa{\k11}i{\k50}ta,{\k85} {\k33}ko{\k24}ko{\k14}ro {\k22}de {\k16}ka{\k43}ke{\k21}nu{\k14}ke{\k79}ru

but the others, are cool ^^

thanks ai-chan :P

thanks for the feedback, zheo

I'll try to fix the spinning blob bug tomorrow (it's 12:55am over here) .. most probably due to a code line or template line being skipped since the syllable is blank (since kara-templater trims leading and trailing spaces) ...  :-[

also, other than the highlight region sliding to next syllable compared the region continuously expanding with \kf, there is another fundamental difference between the two sliding \kf + ephemeral \kf and the original \kf. 10 bucks for anyone who can point out what it is (hint: re-read the first sentence in this paragraph)  :P

Fixed and original post updated with attached file spinblob.ass
If you load the attached file, you can see that the blob will hover a bit over long syllables -- extra oomph! :)

Two more  ;D

X-ray Effect
Attached file: xray.ass

Extended from sliding \kf; the sliding highlight region makes syllables transparent (with thick border) as it slides from one syllable to another

Progressbar Effect
Attached file: progressbar.ass

Animated progressbar behind karaoke lines

Enjoy!

p/s: for instant viewing of the effects, it is recommended that you select 'Yes' when aegisub asks whether you want to load associated files or not

p/s2: unregistered visitors cannot download post attachments, therefore please register and/or log in ;)

cool effects, i've got a little problem with the X-Ray one. At the line {\k38}so{\k23}re {\k180}ga {\k29}hon{\k36}tou {\k250}na{\k83}ra it completely skips the "sore" and only shows "ga hontou nara" even after resizing the font and reapplying the effect.

Thanks for all the cool work you share.  :)

Did you view using the associated dummy video (look at my "p/s" in my previous post)?

Or try menu File > Properties > From Video. Then reapply

I find your scripts really amusing and a bit easy to understand. Thanks  :). I really like the x-ray effect and the spinning blob. You are really the auto4 scriptress!~
