All style code is now open

We're now opening up the code for ALL muvee Reveal styles. If you have a style - free or purchased - you can get the unencrypted data.scm for them by re-downloading the respective style installers from your Self Serve account, as of today.

We see style authoring as more like film-making than rocket science. You can usually tell how a style is built by watching the muvees it makes, but unencrypting all of our styles gives you the equivalent of a detailed "making of" DVD that you can learn from. It also makes it clear that you too can create styles using the same effects and composition framework that we use to make our shipping styles. Taking that further, if you find that we haven't documented something you see us using in the muSE code, just let us know and we'll fill the gap.

In line with the new license terms, we've posted a complete list of open styles for immediate access to all their code on muvee-style-authoring.googlecode.com. Just point your muveeStyleBrowser to http://muvee-style-authoring.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/styles/. Those styles for which only the code (i.e. the data.scm file) has been posted there will appear in the muveeStyleBrowser with "[code only]" in their names.

Have fun!

I am confused about how to create new styles. Can you explain this easier for me. I tried to do what you said but I am clueless. Thanks

Hi,

The definitive starting place for learning how to create your own styles is http://muvee-style-authoring.googlecode.com/. In addition to that, this very forum has some posts that you might find useful. For example, see "Your own custom scrapbook style in 10 minutes".

Have fun!

Hi matsongirl,

Like you, just recently I have been wandering around to customize muvee style. I find this link http://muvee-style-authoring.googlecode.com/svn/doc/main/Getting_Started.html very helpful to kick start. It guides you from setting up the environment to creating a new style, and serves as an api for effects and transitions.

Hi Kumar & All,

I'm user of muvee since version 3 (? - I think more than 10 years) of autoproducer, now I use the revealX. Turning muSE to public- a great idea.
I started to understand its structure, one thing I do not find (and only this feature which is missing from the best auto-authoring tool): the grid-style displaying of pics and videos. Please give me some hints how to define grids which can display 2-4 pics/videos at the same time - if it is possible.

With regards
zsimre

Hello,

I just wanted to check because I do not see any updates since 2016, but has all the information regarding how to make your own Style gone now from the GoogleDocs location? I cannot pull up http://muvee-style-authoring.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/styles/

Thanks.
