To Set Up a Wipe

A wipe transition requires that you select a wipe pattern, and set the direction and number/size of the wipe pattern.

  1. Press WIPE on the Transition module.
  2. Press the pattern button for the pattern you want to use.
  3. Press Direction to select if the wipe moves forward (Fwd) or in reverse (Rev.

    For example, if the circle pattern is used, toggling between reverse and forward changes whether the transition starts as a circle in the center of the screen and expands out, or the circle starts off-screen and shrinks down to the center.

  4. Press Flip Flop to select if the wipe moves in the opposite direction with every transition (On), or always moves in one direction (Off).

    For example, with Flip Flop on, the wipe could be performed from left to right across the screen the first time, and then right to left for the second.

  5. Press Modify Pattern.
  6. Press X/Y Size to adjust the size and position of the pattern.
    • X — move the pattern horizontally, or use the positioner.
    • Y — move the pattern vertically, or use the positioner.
  7. Press Size/Soft Border to apply a border to the edge of the wipe transition.
    • Border — adjust the size of the border (0 turns border off).
    • Softness — adjust the softness of the border or edge of the pattern. If there is no border applied, the softness is applied to the edges if the pattern.
    Tip: You can apply a color or a wash to the border. Press Border Matte and follow the instructions in Washes or Mattes.
  8. Press H-Mult or V-Mult to apply horizontal or vertical multiplication to the pattern. Press the button multiple times to apply up to 5 times multiplication.
  9. Press Aspect to turn the aspect ratio on and use the Aspect knob to adjust the aspect ratio of the border.
  10. Press Rotation and toggle Rotation on to apply a rotation to the pattern.
    • Continuous Rotation — apply a continuous rotation to the pattern. Use the Speed knob to select the rate at which the pattern continuously rotates. Selecting a positive value rotates the pattern clockwise, and selecting a negative value rotates the pattern counter-clockwise.
    • Transition Rotation — apply a fixed number of rotations to the pattern as the wipe is transitioning. The speed of the rotation depends on the number of the amount of rotation and the rate of the transition. Use the Rotation knob to select the amount of rotation of the pattern that occurs during a transition. Selecting a positive value rotates the pattern clockwise, and selecting a negative value rotates the pattern counter-clockwise.
    • User-Controlled Rotation — apply a fixed amount of rotation to the patter. Use the Degrees knob to adjust the rotation of the pattern.
  11. Press UP ONE.
  12. Press Matrix Tile Size to adjust the size of the tiles in a matrix pattern. If a matrix pattern was not used for the wipe, skip this step.
    • Square — use square tiles in the matrix.
    • Tall — use tiles that are taller than wide in the matrix
    • Wide — use tiles that are wider then tall in the matrix
    • Size — select the number of tiles that are used in the matrix. The available selection depend on the selected shape of the tiles.
  13. Press UP ONE.
  14. Press Wipe Modulation and toggle Modulation on to apply wipe modulation to the pattern.
  15. Press Animation to animate the ripples (On).
    Tip: Turning animation off freezes the ripple animation.
  16. Press Vertical Params to adjust the ripples to the left and right of the pattern or Horizontal Params to adjust the ripples to the top and bottom of the pattern.
    • Amplitude — adjust the height of the ripples in the selected directions.
    • Wavelength — adjust the width of the ripples in the selected directions.
    • Rate — adjust the speed that the ripples move in the selected directions.
