Digital Juice®, the highly acclaimed developer of digital content for video and motion graphics designers, announced today the release of Animated Wipes & Transitions, Collection 01: Striking Changes on DVD or for instant download. Wipes are transition elements that travel from one side of a video frame to the other and are ideal for cleansing the visual pallet and refocusing attention on the next clip, section or idea. Each animated wipe in this all new collection comes with a matching sound effect, making it easy to add energy to your logos and IDs through both sight and sound. These wipes make it simple to create smooth dynamic transitions between graphic slates and segments, and provide an ideal way to cover jump cuts in interviews and testimonials – or to flag changes in location, topic or subject.
Over half of these 102 network quality wipes are single-alpha and full-screen. The alpha channel allows video to show through every part of the screen that’s not the animation itself, blocking the screen entirely with the graphic at the selected point. Digital Juice calls this the Switch Frame. To apply the wipe, you position this frame over a cut to mask the edit. When you play the sequence, you get a seamless transition. However, Digital Juice also includes over 50 double alpha wipes in this collection. These unique animations come in two pieces: an animated transitional matte and a coordinated animated overlay. An editor would start by applying the transitional matte to two video clips, assigning the lead clip to the black portion and the trailing clip to the white. They would then add the matching animated overlay to finish the piece off. “The effect is a slick transitional composite that doesn’t require a full-screen switch frame,” says David Hebel, CEO of Digital Juice.
Some of the creative looks in the new Animated Wipes & Transitions Collection 01: Striking Changes include a high-speed camera shutter, an electromagnetic pulse, a cotton candy-colored cloud swirl and a speeding car that moves by to reveal a bicycle rider – to name just a few of the many beautiful animations in the volume. “These 102 network quality wipes can be used in anything from show opens and promo videos to network logo spots and corporate presentations to give them a kick and add unique style to your productions,” says Hebel.
