Sapphire Plug-ins for Autodesk: StripSlide

StripSlide

Breaks a clip into strips and slides them off the screen one at a time to reveal the Background.

Inputs:

Front: The clip to use as foreground.

Back: Optional. The clip to use as background.

Matte: Optional. Specifies the opacities of the Front 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.

Amount: AutoTransition,  Default: 0.5, Range: 0 to 1.
Controls the progress of the slide effect. At zero, the Source is fully visible, and at one the Background is fully visible.

Motion Blur: Default: 0.3, Range: 0 or greater.
Scales the amount of motion blur to use.

Strip Angle: Default: 0, Range: any.
Controls the angle along which the strips are divided, and also the direction in which they slide. This parameter can affect the timing of the strips, so animating it is not recommended.

Strip Shift: Default: 0, Range: any.
Adjusts the position of the strip boundaries. This parameter can affect the timing of the strips, so animating it is not recommended.

Strip Size: Default: 0.1, Range: 0.01 or greater.
The width of the strips. This parameter can affect the timing of the strips, so animating it is not recommended.

Randomize Size: Default: 0, Range: 0 or greater.
Makes some strips larger and some smaller, at random.

Order: Popup menu,  Default: Top Down .
Controls the order in which the strips slide off screen.
Top Down: in order from top to bottom.
Bottom Up: in order from bottom to top.
Random: random order.
Center Out: outward from the center, alternating strips above and below the center.
Edges In: inward from the edges, alternating strips above and below the center.

Speed: Default: 10, Range: 1 or greater.
The speed at which each strip moves. As speed increases, the delay between strips becomes larger. If the speed is low, many strips will be in motion at the same time, creating a wave or ripple effect. This parameter affects the timing of the strips, so animating it is not recommended.

Slow Start: Default: 1, Range: 0 to 1.
Controls the acceleration of each strip as it moves. If set to zero, the strip will start moving at full speed. With larger values, the strip will start moving more slowly and accelerate up to its full speed, resulting in smoother motion.

Seed: Default: 0.123, Range: 0 or greater.
Initializes the random number generator for random strips sizes and order. The actual seed value is not significant, but different seeds give different results and the same value should give a repeatable result.

Comp Premult: Check-box,  Default: off.
Enable this for a better composite if the Front pixel values have been pre-multiplied by the Matte pixel values. This is also known as an 'additive' composite.

Params2:

Params3:

Mocha: Default: 0, Range: 0 or greater, Shared .
Brings up the Mocha window for tracking footage and generating masks.

Blur Mocha: Default: 0, Range: 0 or greater, Shared .
Blurs the Mocha Mask by this amount before using. This can be used to soften the edges or quantization artifacts of the mask, and smooth out the time displacements.

Mocha Opacity: Default: 1, Range: 0 to 1, Shared .
Controls the strength of the Mocha mask. Lower values reduce the intensity of the effect.

Invert Mocha: Check-box,  Default: off, Shared .
If enabled, the black and white of the Mocha Mask are inverted before applying the effect.

Show Mocha Only: Check-box,  Default: off, Shared .
Bypass the effect and show the Mocha Mask itself.

Bypass Mocha: Check-box,  Default: off, Shared .
Ignore the Mocha Mask and apply the effect to the entire source clip.
