Sapphire Plug-ins for Open Fx: DissolveDiffuse

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 Amount 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.

In the Sapphire Transitions effects submenu.


Inputs:

From: Optional. Starts the transition with this clip.

To: Optional. Ends the transition with this clip.

Dissolve Amount: Default: 0, Range: -0.5 to 1.5.

Rel Amount: X & Y,   Default: [1 1], Range: 0 or greater.
Scales the relative horizontal and vertical amounts of diffusion.

Wrap: X & Y,  Popup menu,  Default: [ Reflect Reflect ].
Determines the method for accessing outside the borders of the source images.
No: gives black beyond the borders.
Tile: repeats a copy of the image.
Reflect: repeats a mirrored copy. Edges are often less visible with this method.

Crop Input Parameters: Default: 0, Range: 0 or greater.
These 4 parameters, Crop Top , Crop Bottom , Crop Left, and Crop Right , allow selecting a rectangular subsection of the input image to be processed. If the Wrap parameters are set to "No" the exposed borders will be transparent. If the Wrap is "Tile" or "Reflect" the source image is wrapped on the new cropped borders to fill the frame. This can make it easier to avoid artifacts due to distorting an image with bad edges.

Show Max Amount: Check-box, Default: on.
Turns on or off the screen user interface for adjusting the Max Amount parameter.
