Transitions  S_CardFlip 

Transitions between two clips by sliding or spinning the outgoing clip to reveal the incoming clip behind it. The Amount parameter should be animated to control the transition speed. Adjusting Revolutions and Shift will give different kinds of transitions.

Transitions  S_Dissolve

  A basic cross fade between two input clips.

Transitions  S_DissolveAutoPaint 

Fade in a ‘paint-brushed’ version of the starting clip. Decrease the complexity of the painting until it is just a few colors, then transition to a ‘paint-brushed’ version of the second clip which then grows in color and complexity until the second clip fades in.

Transitions  S_DissolveBlur 

Transitions between two input clips while blurring each. The first clip is blurred and faded out while the second clip is unblurred and faded in. The Dissolve Percent parameter should be animated to control the transition speed.

Transitions  S_DissolveBubble 

Transitions between two input clips using a bubble warping function. The first clip is warped away and faded out while the second clip is unwarped into place and faded in. The Dissolve Percent parameter should be animated to control the transition speed.

Transitions  S_DissolveDefocus 

Transitions between two input clips while defocusing each. The first clip is defocused and faded out while the second clip is brought into focus and faded in. The Dissolve Percent parameter should be animated to control the transition speed.

Transitions  S_DissolveDiffuse 

Transitions between two input clips by scrambling the pixels of the inputs within an area determined by Max Amount. The first clip is diffused away while the second clip is diffused into place. The Dissolve Percent parameter should be animated to control the transition speed. The pixelated look of this effect depends on the image resolution, so it is recommended to test your final resolution before processing.

Transitions  S_DissolveDistort 

Transitions between two input clips while distorting each using the gradient of the other. The first clip is warped away and faded out while the second clip is unwarped into place and faded in. The Dissolve Percent parameter should be animated to control the transition speed. Note that the Background input must be provided or this effect will just perform a simple dissolve without any distortion.

Transitions  S_DissolveEdgeRays 

Transitions between two input clips using animated edge rays. The clips dissolve into each other, and edge rays are added to the result. The edge rays ramps up and down over the duration of the effect. The edge rays animate by moving the origin of the edge rays across the screen along a line. The Dissolve Percent parameter should be animated to control the transition speed.

Transitions  S_DissolveFilm

Transitions between two input clips using a film dissolve with selectable gamma. Film dissolve preserves the highlights in the clips longer compared to a regular dissolve. The Dissolve Percent parameter should be animated to control the transition speed.

Transitions  S_DissolveFlashbulbs 

Simulates lots of flashbulbs going off while dissolving between two clips. With many small flashes, can look like a stadium scene. With a few large flashes, works well on a celebrity red carpet clip.

Transitions  S_DissolveGlare 

Transitions between two input clips using animated glares. The clips dissolve into each other, and glares are added to the result. The glare size and brightness ramps up and down over the duration of the effect.

Transitions  S_DissolveGlint 

Transitions between two input clips using a bright glowing glint. The clips dissolve into each other, while each one gets a glint which ramps up and down over the duration of the effect. The Dissolve Percent parameter should be animated to control the transition speed.

Transitions  S_DissolveGlintRainbow 

Transitions between two input clips using a bright glowing glint. The clips dissolve into each other, while each one gets a glint which ramps up and down over the duration of the effect. The Dissolve Percent parameter should be animated to control the transition speed.

Transitions  S_DissolveGlow 

Transitions between two input clips using a bright glowing flash. The clips dissolve into each other, while each one gets a glow which ramps up and down over the duration of the effect. The Dissolve Percent parameter should be animated to control the transition speed.

Transitions  S_DissolveLensFlare 

Transitions between two input clips using an animated lens flare. The clips dissolve into each other, while a lens flare moves along a straight line. The lens flare grows and shrinks over the duration of the effect. The Dissolve Percent parameter should be animated to control the transition speed.

Transitions  S_DissolveLuma 

Transitions between two input clips using a pattern derived from their luminances. One clip often appears to emerge through the other. The Dissolve Percent parameter should be animated to control the transition speed.

Transitions  S_DissolvePuddle

Transitions  S_DissolveRays 

Transitions between two input clips using animated rays. The clips dissolve into each other, and rays are added to the result. The rays ramp up and down over the duration of the effect. The rays animate by moving the origin of the rays across the screen along a line. The Dissolve Percent parameter should be animated to control the transition speed.

Transitions  S_DissolveShake 

Transitons between two clips by applying a shaking motion to them, along with a quick dissolve. The shaking uses translation, zooming, and/or rotation. It is random but repeatable, so with the same parameters the same shaking motion is generated each time. Turn on Motion Blur and adjust the Mo Blur Length for different amounts of blur. Adjust the Amplitude and Frequency for different shaking speeds and amounts. The Rand parameters give detailed control of the random non-periodic shaking, and the Wave parameters adjust the regular periodic shaking. The X, Y, Z, and Tilt parameters control the horizontal, vertical, zoom, and rotation amounts of shaking respectively.

Transitions  S_DissolveSpeckle 

Transition between two input clips using a speckled noise pattern. The Dissolve Percent parameter should be animated to control the transition speed.

Transitions  S_DissolveStatic 

Transitions between two input clips using random pixel static. The Dissolve Percent parameter should be animated to control the transition speed. The pixelated look of this effect depends on the image resolution, so it is recommended to test your final resolution before processing.

Transitions  S_DissolveTiles 

Transitions between two input clips while breaking each up into tiles and scrambling them. The first clip breaks apart and spreads out while the second clip coalesces behind the first. The Dissolve Percent parameter should be animated to control the transition speed.

Transitions  S_DissolveVortex 

Transitions between two input clips using a vortex warping function. The first clip is warped away and faded out while the second clip is unwarped into place and faded in. The Dissolve Percent parameter should be animated to control the transition speed.

Transitions  S_DissolveWaves

Transitions  S_FlutterCut 

Transitions between two clips by rapidly cutting back and forth between them, optionally inserting solid colored or inverted frames as well. The cuts of each clip can get longer or shorter over the length of the transition.

Transitions  S_StripSlideTransition 

Transitions between two clips by breaking them into strips and sliding them off the screen one at a time to reveal the incoming clip.

Transitions  S_Swish3D 

Dissolves between two input clips while performing 3D moves on each. During the transition the From clip is transformed by the Zdist, Rotate, Swivel, Tilt, Shift, Scale, and Shear parameters, and the To clip is transformed by the opposite of these values. The overall amount of motion for each image can be scaled by the Rel Amp From and Rel Amp To parameters.

Transitions  S_SwishPan 

Transitions between two input clips by sliding one clip off the frame and the other clip on, and adding motion blur to give the appearance of a quick pan. This works best when the duration of the transition is short.

Transitions  S_TVChannelChange
