Sapphire Plug-ins for Open Fx: DissolveDistort

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 Amount parameter should be animated to control the transition speed.

In the Sapphire Transitions effects submenu.


Inputs:

From: Optional. Starts the transition with this clip.

To: Optional. Ends the transition with this clip.

Parameters:

Load Preset: Push-button .
Brings up the Preset Browser to browse all available presets for this effect.

Save Preset: Push-button .
Brings up the Preset Save dialog to save a preset for this effect.

Dissolve Amount: Default: 0, Range: -0.5 to 1.5.
The transition ratio between the From and To inputs. A value of 0 gives only the From input and a value of 1 gives only the To input. By default this parameter automatically animates from 0 to 1 to perform a complete transition.

Amplitude: Default: 1, Range: any.
Scales the amount of distortion applied to both input clips. This can also be negative to turn expansions into contractions and vice versa.

Rel Amp From: Default: 1, Range: any.
Scales the relative distortion amplitude of the From clip.

Rel Amp To: Default: -1, Range: any.
Scales the relative distortion amplitude of the To clip.

Smoothness: Default: 0.25, Range: 0 or greater.
Smooths the distortions by this amount. Increase for large scale distortion, decrease for finer detailed distortion.

Rotate Warp Dir: Default: 0, Range: any.
Rotates the direction of the distortion. This can cause areas of similar brightness to be twisted instead of just expanded or shrunk.

Slow In: Default: 0.2, Range: 0 to 1.
If positive, causes the transition to start more gradually.

Slow Out: Default: 0.2, Range: 0 to 1.
If positive, causes the transition to end more gradually.

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.

Filter: Check-box,  Default: on.
If enabled, the image is adaptively filtered when it is resampled. This gives a better quality result when parts of the image are warped smaller.
