Wipe a specific shape across the video. Currently available 63 shapes are:
The menu for Shape Wipe that popups when you click on Show has several possible choices. First, the Shape allows for choosing from the list of shapes as outlined previously either by typing in the textbox, using the down arrow, or clicking on the tumbler down/up arrows. Next, there is a Feather textbox with tumbler arrows or a slider bar to easily change the blending amount. A reset button is conveniently located to the right of the slider bar. There is a checkbox to Preserve shape aspect ratio and a Direction of White to Black or Black to White (figure 11.3).
You can add your own images to the Shape Wipe transition and there are some free ones available to download at http://assistcg.com - click on the Transitions option under the Video pulldown on that site. AppImage does not provide this capability unless you use the workaround as described in the Appendix FAQ, Known Problems and Workarounds.
To include new images in the Shape Wipe Transition, simply copy the file shape.jpg or shape.png to the subdirectory plugins/shapes in your CINELERRA-GG directory path. If you prefer to have a better quality png used instead of the included 90% jpg version, you can download the equivalent png versions at https://cinelerra-gg.org/download/testing/ShapeWipe_pngs.txz. You will then need to untar this file, choose the ones you want, and add them to your directory path. And if that is not enough, you can download another 32 different transitions at https://cinelerra-gg.org/download/testing/ShapeWipe_additional.txz. One particularly interesting ShapeWipe in this set is Fleur-de-lis-of-Florence. After an update of CINELERRA-GG, they will have to be restored each time.
