Sapphire Plug-ins for Autodesk: DissolveLuma

DissolveLuma

In the S_Dissolves Plugin.

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

Inputs:

From: Starts the transition with this clip.

To: 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 Amt: AutoTransition,  Default: 0, Range: -0.5 to 1.5, Shared .
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.

Softness: Default: 0.1, Range: 0 to 1.
Increase for softer and slower transitions.

Smooth Pattern: Default: 0, Range: 0 to 1.
If positive, a blur is applied to the transition pattern. This can reduce noise and give clearer edges to transition lines.

Use Luma Of: Popup menu,  Default: Difference .
Determines how the transition pattern is generated from the clips' luminance values.
Difference: similar areas transition first, different areas last.
Subtract: areas where the first clip is brighter transition first, and areas where the second clip is brighter transition last.
Mult: areas where both images are bright transition first, and areas where either is dark are last.
Screen: areas where either image is bright transition first, and areas where both are dark transition last.
From: dark areas of the first clip disappear first, bright areas last.
To: bright areas of the second clip appear first, dark areas last.

Invert Pattern: Check-box,  Default: off.
If enabled, the transition pattern is reversed in time.
