Directional Wipe options and example

Wipe % From Transition

When checked (the default) the Wipe % is automatically tied to the total transition time, so that the wipe will finish at the same time as the transition. When cleared, you will be able to use the Wipe Percentage control manually to control the wipe.

Wipe %

This will only appear if Wipe % From Transition is cleared. With this slider you can manually control and keyframe the Wipe amount.

Direction From Transition

When checked, the Wipe Direction is controlled by the Flight Rotation spinner in FX Options.

Wipe Direction

This spinner controls the direction in which the image is “wiped away”.


This slider controls the softness at the edge of the wipe. The higher the value the softer the edge of the wipe.

This slider controls the size of the colored border. At 0, there is no border at all. The higher the value, the larger the border.

Click this button to select the color of the border. The border is only visible if the border size is not 0.
