"Do you make your own presets? Are you looking for a way to make them more organized and professional looking? Well Pseudo Effects are the answer. Pseudo Effects, sometimes called 'custom effect controls' and 'custom expression controls' allow you to put all of your controls into a single 'effect'. You can set your own defaults and value ranges so that users can use the reset button to return to the defaults you chose. There are many more advantages to using Pseudo Effects, and this tutorial will go over all of them as I walk you through creating one from scratch. The creation of these controls is done in an .XML file, so for those of you how do not feel comfortable writing your own code, or just want to speed up the process, I also end the tutorial by showing you a way of creating all of the XML without doing any programming by hand. So lets get started creating a Pseudo Effect!" says Jesse Toula for Creative COW.

thats excellent video, I hope u'll do small tutorial for writing a scriptUI,

You are right, the pseudo effect is more professional than expression effects, but still, a custom UI, will be awesome, specially when we can add small image on the panel and having independent panel.

thanks a 1000000000,
Firas.
