Transitions between two input clips by adding blocks
of pixels of one clip onto another in a semi-random order. The Wipe Percent
parameter should be animated to control the transition speed. Adjust the
Edge Width and Chunky parameters for different pixelated patterns.
In the Sapphire Transitions effects submenu.
Foreground: The current layer. Starts the transition with this clip.
Background: Defaults to None. Ends the transition with this clip. If this input is
not provided, a fully transparent background is used, showing
whatever is behind it.
- Transition Dir:
Popup menu, Default: Wipe Off to Bg.
Selects the direction of the transition.
- Wipe Off to Bg: transitions from the current layer to the Background.
- Wipe On from Bg: transitions from the Background to the current layer.
- Auto Trans:
Popup YES-NO, Default: No.
If enabled, a transition is performed automatically between
the first and last frames of the layer. If this is off, the transition is
performed manually by animating the Wipe Percent parameter.
- Wipe Percent: Default: 0, Range: 0 to 100.
Auto Trans must be disabled for this parameter to be
used. It determines the transition ratio between the From and To
inputs, and would normally be animated from 0 to 100 to perform a
complete transition. The curve controlling this parameter can be adjusted
for more detailed control over the timing of the wipe.
- Edge Width: Default: 360, Range: 5 or greater.
The width of the transition area.
- Angle: Default: 0, Range: any.
The angle of the wipe direction in degrees. Use 0 for a wipe from left to
right, 90 or -90 for a vertical wipe, 180 for a wipe from right to left.
- Pixel Frequency: Default: 20, Range: 0.1 or greater.
Increase for smaller and more pixels, decrease
for fewer and larger pixels.
- Pixel Rel Width: Default: 1, Range: 0.01 or greater.
The relative horizontal size of the pixels.
Increase for wide pixels, decrease for tall ones.
- Chunky: Default: 0, Range: 0 or greater.
Increase to cause the pixels to be added with a more
- Seed: Default: 0.23, Range: 0 or greater.
Used to initialize the random number generator. The actual
seed value is not significant, but different seeds give different
results and the same value should give a repeatable result.
- Show Wipe: Check-box, Default: off.
Turns on or off the screen user interface widget
for adjusting the Grad Add, Grad Angle, and Wipe Percent parameters. The
value of the Grad Add parameter must first be positive for this
widget to be visible.This parameter only appears on AE and Premiere,
where on-screen widgets are supported.
