How to use Wave

Wave transitions between two video clips by modulating the picture side to side in a rippling pattern oriented either vertically or horizontally.

Use the controls to dial up the wave behavior.

  • Rate sets the frequency or width of the ripple. For a busy wiggle with lots of repeats, turn to the right. For a large, slow wave, turn to the left.
  • Strength sets the displacement caused by the wave. Turn to the right for increased wiggle effect. Turn to the left for a decreased wiggle.
  • Drift sets the wave shifting through the picture. The higher the drift, the faster the curves shift through.
  • Cross Fade sets the percentage of the transition that includes a cross fade of the image from first to second clip. Turn to the left for an abrupt switch between images. Turn to the right for an increasingly gradual mix.
  • Crop sets the wave edge boundary. Some video frames have junk bordering the image that really aren't part of the picture. If the Replicate option (see below) is chosen for edging, the junk gets copied over into the picture, which is obviously not desired. Crop insets the edge so the bad video is ignored.
  • Select the behavior of the wave Edges by choosing one of the following:
    • Replicate copies the edge of the modulated signal over to the edge of the picture.
    • Stretch holds the edge of the picture and stretches it gradually to create the wave, as if made out of rubber.
  • Select one of the Orientation options to set the wave orientation side to side or up and down.
