Sapphire Plug-ins for Autodesk: WipePointalize

WipePointalize

In the S_Wipes Plugin.

Transitions between two input clips by adding brush-like polygon shapes from one clip onto another in a semi-random order. The Wipe Amt parameter should be animated to control the transition speed. Adjust the Frequency to change the size of the shapes, and adjust the Edge Width and Chunky parameters for different patterns.

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.

Wipe 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 will automatically animate from 0 to 1 to perform a complete wipe.

Edge Width: Default: 2, Range: 0.05 or greater.
The width of the transition area.

Angle: Default: 0, Range: any.
The angle of the wipe direction in degrees. Use 0 for a wipe from left to right, 90 or -90 for a vertical wipe, 180 for a wipe from right to left.

Frequency: Default: 20, Range: 5 or greater.
Increase for smaller and more polygon shapes, decrease for fewer and larger.

Chunky: Default: 0.2, Range: 0 or greater.
Increase to cause the shapes to be added with a more clustered ordering.

Stroke Length: Default: 0, Range: any.
Determines the length of the brush stroke shapes. A zero value gives regular polygon shapes. Increase for longer more random shapes. Negative values cause the strokes to orient in the other direction. Note that when this parameter is non-zero, the stroke shapes will also vary over time as if being re-painted.

Stroke Align: Default: 0.5, Range: 0 or greater.
Increase to smooth out the directions of the strokes so nearby strokes are more parallel.

Seed: Default: 0.23, Range: 0 or greater.
Used to initialize the random number generator. The actual seed value is not significant, but different seeds give different results and the same value should give a repeatable result.
