Amount: Default: 0, Range: 0 to 1.
The transition ratio between the From and To inputs. Auto Trans must be disabled for this parameter to be used. This would normally be animated from 0 to 1 to perform a complete transition, and the curve can be adjusted for more detailed control over the timing of the dissolve. The Slow In and Slow Out parameters, if positive, also adjust the transition ratio internally for a smoother start and/or end to the transition.

Right: horizontal spin to the right.
Up: vertical spin upward.

Shift: Default: 0, Range: 0 or greater.
Slides the clips horizontally or vertically away from each other during the first half of the transition, then toward each other in the second half. Both clips end in the same position in which they started. Set to a value or 1 or greater to prevent the clips from overlapping at the mid-point of the transition.

Shift Direction: Popup menu,  Default: Left .
The direction of shifting.
Left: The outgoing clip shifts left and the incoming clip shifts right.
Right: The outgoing clip shifts right and the incoming clip shifts left.
Up: The outgoing clip shifts up and the incoming clip shifts down.
