Sapphire Plug-ins for Open Fx: WipeMoire

S_WipeMoire

Performs a wipe transition between two input clips using a pattern of combined concentric rings. The Wipe Amount parameter should be animated to control the transition speed. The Phase Speed and Moire Speed parameters cause the rings to automatically animate over time. Increase the Grad Add parameter to make the timing of the pattern move across the screen during the wipe. Increase the Border Width parameter to draw a border at the wipe transition edges.

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.

Wipe Amount: Default: 0, Range: -0.5 to 1.5.
Determines the transition ratio between the From and To inputs, and would normally be animated from 0 to 1 to perform a complete transition. The curve controlling this parameter can be adjusted for more detailed control over the timing of the wipe.

Edge Softness: Default: 0.02, Range: 0 or greater.
The width of the transition edges. Larger values will cause softer, less visible edges in the wipe pattern.

A Center: X & Y,   Default: [-0.208 -0.231], Range: any.
The center location of the A ring pattern.

B Center: X & Y,   Default: [0.208 0.231], Range: any.
The center location of the B ring pattern.

Frequency: Default: 5, Range: 0.5 or greater.
The frequency of the moire pattern. Increase for more and smaller elements, or decrease for fewer and larger.

Phase Start: Default: 0, Range: any.
The phase of the ring patterns. Increase to shift outwards from the centers, or decrease to shift inwards toward the centers. The phase parameters are relative to the period of the rings (1/frequency) so changing any by exactly 1 should give the same result again.

Phase Speed: Default: 1, Range: any.
The automatic change in phase during the transition period.

Moire Phase: Default: 0, Range: any.
The relative start phase of the two ring patterns. Shifts the A ring pattern out and the B ring pattern in by the same amount, causing changes in the moire pattern itself.

Moire Speed: Default: 0, Range: any.
Automatic change in the relative phase of the two ring patterns during the transition.

A Rel Freq: Default: 1, Range: 0.1 or greater.
Scales the ring frequencies of the A ring pattern.

A Rel Width: Default: 1, Range: 0.2 or greater.
The relative horizontal size of the A ring pattern. Increase for wider ring shapes, decrease for taller ones.

A Rotate: Default: 0, Range: any.
Rotation in degrees of the A ring pattern. Note that this will have no effect when A Rel Width is 1.

B Rel Freq: Default: 1, Range: 0.1 or greater.
Scales the ring frequencies of the B ring pattern.

B Rel Width: Default: 1, Range: 0.2 or greater.
The relative horizontal size of the B ring pattern. Increase for wider ring shapes, decrease for taller ones.

B Rotate: Default: 0, Range: any.
Rotation in degrees of the B ring pattern. Note that this will have no effect when A Rel Width is 1.

Grad Add: Default: 0, Range: -10 to 10.
If positive, a gradient will be added to the timing of the transition pattern so it moves across the screen during the wipe. This parameter can be adjusted using the Wipe Widget if enabled, but the value must be positive to make this widget visible.

Grad Angle: Default: 0, Range: any.
The direction of the wipe gradient in counter-clockwise degrees. This will have no effect unless Grad Add is positive. The Wipe Widget also allows adjusting this parameter.

Border Width: Default: 0, Range: 0 or greater.
If positive, a colored border is drawn at the wipe transition edges, using the border color, opacity, softness, and shift parameters below.

Border Color: Default rgb: [0.75 0 0].
The color of the border. This has no effect unless Border Width is positive.

Border Opacity: Default: 1, Range: 0 to 1.
The opacity of the border. Decrease to make the border transparent and allow the image under it to show through. This has no effect unless Border Width is positive.

Border Softness: Default: 0, Range: 0 or greater.
The softness of the border edges. This has no effect unless Border Width is positive.

Border Shift: Default: 0, Range: any.
Shifts the border ahead of or behind the transition edge. This has no effect unless Border Width is positive.

Border Glow: Default: 0, Range: 0 or greater.
Adds a glow along the border of the wipe. The value determines the brightness of the glow.

Glow Width: Default: 0.1, Range: 0 or greater.
The width of the glowing border.

Width Red: Default: 1, Range: 0 or greater.
Scales the red glow width. If the red, green, and blue widths are all equal, the glow will match Glow Color. Otherwise it will have a fringe of varying color.

Width Green: Default: 1.2, Range: 0 or greater.
Scales the green glow width.

Width Blue: Default: 1.4, Range: 0 or greater.
Scales the blue glow width.

Glow Color: Default rgb: [1 1 1].
The color of the glowing border.

Noise Amp: Default: 1, Range: 0 or greater.
The amount of noise to add to the glowing border.

Noise Freq: Default: 16, Range: 0.1 to 20.
The spatial frequency of the noise.

Noise Speed: Default: 2, Range: any.
The speed with which the noise changes or boils over time.

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

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