VHS simulates a damaged VHS tape. Use the Source X pos slider to locate the vertical strip down the frame that affects the distortion. The horizontal distortion uses the luminance value along this vertical strip. The threshold adjusts the value that triggers the distortion and white, red and blue noise can be added. There's also a Roll control to roll the image up or down at different speeds. Everything is keyframable so play around with it to get the desired effect as the clip plays.

RosehavenjwrlRosehaven.fxDVEMay 8 2020May 10 2020

This image is hidden for guests. Please log in or register to see it.

Rosehaven creates mirrored halves of the frame for title sequences and similar uses. The mirroring can be vertical or horizontal, and the mirror point/wipe centre can be moved to vary the effect. The image can also be scaled, positioned, flipped and rotated to control the area mirrored. There is a simpler version of this effect called Mirrors available, which lacks the ability to flip and rotate the image.

Any black areas visible outside the active picture area are transparent, and can be blended with other effects to add complexity.

The name of this effect comes from an Australian television series that I first saw several years ago. An effect similar to this was used in its opening title sequence. Well, I had to call it something!

This is designed to emulate the sort of dissolve that you used to get with a film optical printer. For comparison, above are side by side images of the midpoint of a standard video dissolve and a film optical. No attempt has been made to simulate increased grain or any jump in exposure going into and out of the effect. If you need that older style of optical you'll have to add noise and colourgrading yourself.

Either Optical_Dx or Optical_Ax, Optical_Adx will give an example of it in use. You will find an explanation of how to use alpha transitions in this post and delta transitions in this one.

This is an "S" dissolve, and is essentially the same as Editshare's "Mix", with either a trigonometric or a quadratic S curve applied to the "Amount" parameter. If you need to you can vary the linearity of the curve from -100% (inverse curvature) through 0% (linear) to 100% (full curvature). The midpoint curve setting will give you a linear transition just like a standard dissolve.

If you manually enter values for the curve outside the 0-100% range you can get even more extreme curves than those shown. You can even get midpoint inversion by typing in values greater than -100%, i.e., the effect will fade in then start to fade out, then fade in to completion.

Click on Sdissolve_Dx or Sdissolve_Ax, Sdissolve_Adx will show you what it does. You will find an explanation of how to use alpha transitions in this post and delta transitions in this one.

Subtractive dissolvejwrlSubtract_Dx.fxStandard dissolveMay 11 2017July 29 2020

This image is hidden for guests. Please log in or register to see it.

This is an inverted non-additive mix. The incoming video is faded from white to normal value at the 50% point, at which stage the outgoing video starts to fade to white. The two images are then mixed by giving the source with the lowest level the priority. The result is a subtractive or negative mix effect.

Subtract_Dx is a demonstration of the effect in use.

This recreates the classic Hollywood wavy dream sequence transition. It was originally based on khaver's water effect but has since had considerable modification.

This alpha and delta versions start off by rippling the title as it dissolves in. As it goes it progressively loses the ripple. Ripples can be horizontal and/or vertical, wave or ripple type.

This image is hidden for guests. Please log in or register to see it.

This cute transition effect "flies" the image off to reveal the new image. The process is divided into 2 phases in order to always ensure a clean transition at different effect positions. The first phase transforms the outgoing image into the centre of the frame as a butterfly shape. In this part of the transition the position is fixed. The second part is the actual flight phase. Adjustment of the final destination is possible, but the default is a destination outside of the screen.

Click on FlyAway_Dx to see the effect in use.

This is a transition based on baopao's background generator Kaleido.fx. The scaling and position of the effect can be adjusted, but default to full frame centred. Additionally, a fan component can be introduced to the effect.

Does just what it says. You can adjust the radius of the curl, whether the back of the page is white or slightly translucent, and you can reverse the direction (unroll instead of roll up).

Click on PageRoll_Dx to see how the effect works.

This is a dissolve/wipe that use a sine distortion to do a left - right or right - left transition to bring video on or off. The phase can also be offset by 180 degrees to change the vertical direction in which the distortion starts. Frequency, range and spread are all adjustable, and there are alpha and delta versions available (below).

This weird transition is a dissolve that warps the image based on the video content of the two shots being melded. Because the warp depends on the image content the end result can be quite unpredictable. As an example, the screen grab above shows the frame at the mid-point between the two attached thumb-nail images. Here's what the alpha version can look like.

This is really the classic barn door effect, but since a wipe with that name already exists in Lightworks another name had to be found. The Lightworks wipe is just that, a wipe. It doesn't move the separated image parts apart as this effect does.
