Type Range/options Description
FadeColor float4 0.0 – 1.0 Represents the color (and alpha value) applied to the image/video.

The FadeColor is defined as an array of 4 floats. Each float represents a color channel, in this order: Red, Green, Blue, Alpha.

Point float 0.0 – 1.0 The point within the duration of the effect at which the enclosing element will have the specified value. When the time attribute is equal to 0.0, it indicates the starting point of the clip; when the time attribute is equal to 1.0, it indicates the end point of the clip.

For more information on the Point element, see Changes to the XML Schema.


Note   The "float4" type refers to a comma-delimited array of four floating point numbers. For instance, "(0.0,1.0,0.2,0.4)".
