Auto Movie Creator 3.26

Wipe Transitions

Auto Movie Creator provides many Wipe Transitions.  All wipe transitions change over time.  These transitions are sorted into 11 categories to make it easier to locate them.  They all user the same Settings:

Transition Mask JPEG is displayed under the General tab in the settings dialogue; Scale, Origin and Replicate under the Dimensions tab and Border Width, Border Smoothness and Border Color under the Border tab.

Every transition under a wipe transition category has a mask.  A set of common settings can be specified for every transition.  The settings are:

Transition Mask

The Transition Mask is the shape the foreground image takes as it moves or expands to cover the background video.  For example, the Triangle Wipe moves a triangular shape showing the second video clip over the first.  Every category contains similar transitions.  For example, the Triangle Wipe category contains all triangle-type transitions.

Transition Mask JPEG

A transition mask image specifies a JPEG file that is used as a transition.  Simply select Transition Mask JPEG, browse for the JPEG file and click OK.


A transition can be scaled horizontally or vertically by specifying the horizontal and vertical scale values respectively.  The scaling affects the shapes that move over the background image.  For instance, if the Horizontal Scale is set to 2, the shapes are twice as wide as when it is set to 1.


Moving the Origin changes the position of the Transition, relative to the image.  For instance, normally the Triangle Wipe's triangles meet at the center of the image.  If the Origin is moved to the right (the Horizontal value is increased) then they will meet to the right of the center.  The Horizontal and Vertical values can be set directly, or by dragging the red circle using the mouse.


You can Replicate the chosen effect, duplicating it across the image.  For instance, if you are using a simple Triangle - Top/Bottom transition, setting Horizontal Replication to 3 will produce a new shape, a sawtooth made of three triangles.  Clever use of Replicate can create a completely new transition.

Border Width

The moving shapes in a Wipe have a colored border.  Border Width controls how many pixels wide the border is.

Border Softness

Border softness reduces the sharpness of the edges of a Mask during the transition.

Border Color

The Border Color is the color of the border of a mask.  To set the border color you may:

  1. Select a primary color. 
  2. Select the Red, Green and Blue composition of a color. 
  3. Select the color from the palette by clicking the Custom button.

Swap video clips for this transition

Normally, the second video clip replaces the first video clip in a Wipe.  Check this option if you want the first video clip to replace the second video clip.

The transition with its settings can be instantly previewed.  After the transition has been configured, you may click “ OK ” to apply the transition.
