In Avid Media Composer, you can create your own soft wipe transitions by creating a gradient.

play_avid_tutorial.pngI recently had a customer who wanted to create a soft clock wipe effect.  The majority of preset wipes within Avid Media Composer do not have a softness control.

An easy fix is to create your own soft wipe transition, which then can be stored as an Avid quick transition for future use.

The secret is to create to black/white gradient, which is used by the Avid Software to create the transition.

Here's an example of a wipe created from the gradient above.

Keep in mind, a gradient doesn't need to be a simple back and white pattern.  The gradient can be a picture.  Anything with a texture (i.e, clouds), will produce a nice transition.

This lesson focuses on using the yellow segment splice smart tool within Avid Media Composer.
