Sapphire Plug-ins for Autodesk: DissolveVortex

DissolveVortex

In the S_Dissolves Plugin.

Transitions between two input clips using a vortex warping function. The first clip is warped away and faded out while the second clip is unwarped into place and faded in. 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. The Slow In and Slow Out parameters, if positive, also adjust the dissolve amount internally for a smoother start and/or end to the transition.

Vortex Amount: Default: 72, Range: any.
The amount of vortex rotation, in approximate degrees at the edge of the frame.

Rel Amount2: Default: -1, Range: any.
The relative amount of the second clip vortex rotation. If this is positive instead of negative the second clip will be unvortexed from the opposite direction.

Inner Radius: Default: 0.04, Range: 0 or greater.
The radius from the center at which the vortexing is phased in. This can be used to reduce excessive distortion and aliasing at the very center of the vortex.

Rotate Amount: Default: 0, Range: any.
If non-zero, a rotation is also added to the warping. Make negative to rotate the inner and outer regions in different directions.

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.

Slow In: Default: 0.5, Range: 0 or greater.
If positive, causes the transition to start more gradually.

Slow Out: Default: 0.5, Range: 0 or greater.
If positive, causes the transition to end more gradually.

Center: X & Y,   Default: [0 0], Range: any.
The location of the vortex center in screen coordinates relative to the center of the frame. This parameter can be set by enabling and moving the Center Widget. Note that moving the vortex center can also cause the vortex size to change so that the current value of Wipe Amt remains correct.

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.
