Microsoft no longer supports the development of third-party DirectX Transform objects.

To specify the filter or DirectX Transform object for an effect, call the IAMTimelineObj::SetSubObjectGUID method.

To create an effect object, call IAMTimeline::CreateEmptyNode with the value TIMELINE_MAJOR_TYPE_EFFECT. You can query the returned IAMTimelineObj pointer for the IAMTimelineEffect interface.
