Sapphire Plug-ins for Autodesk: WipeRings

WipeRings

In the S_Wipes Plugin.

Performs a wipe transition between two input clips using a pattern of concentric rings. The Wipe Amt parameter should be animated to control the transition speed. Increase the Grad Add parameter to make the timing of the rings pattern move across the screen during the wipe. Increase the Border Width parameter to draw a border at the wipe transition edges.

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.

Frequency: Default: 4, Range: 0.1 or greater.
The frequency of the rings pattern. Increase for more and smaller elements, or decrease for fewer and larger.

Rel Width: Default: 1, Range: 0.1 or greater.
The relative horizontal size of the rings. Increase for wider rings, decrease for taller ones.

Shift Stripes: Default: 0, Range: any.
Translation of the stripe pattern.

Bulge: Default: 0, Range: -1 to 1.
Increase to make the inner rings thicker than the outer rings, or set negative to make the outer rings thicker.

Rotate: Default: 0, Range: any.
The rotation angle of the ring pattern in counter-clockwise degrees. Note that you will not notice any rotation when the Rel Width value is 1.

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

Grad Add: Default: 0, Range: any.
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.

Center: X & Y,   Default: [0 0], Range: any.
The center location of the ring pattern.

Radial Grad: Default: 0, Range: any.
If non-zero, a radial gradient will be added to the timing of the rings pattern so it moves outwards from the center during the wipe. If negative, it moves inwards towards the center.

Border Width: Default: 0, Range: 0 or greater, Shared .
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 0.75 0.75], Shared .
The color of the border. This has no effect unless Border Width is positive.

Border Opacity: Default: 1, Range: 0 to 1, Shared .
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, Shared .
The softness of the border edges. This has no effect unless Border Width is positive.

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

Params2:

Params3:

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

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.

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.
