I designed a diagonal swipe transition in Notepad++ and applied it to a transparent clip with the newly-named “Text:HTML” filter (19.06 onwards, previously named “Overlay HTML” filter).
It works fine. Here are two short demos I made:
The diagonal swipe design features 4 large “boxes”, each rotated, moving from left to right using @elusien’s webvfx framework.
- White box set at opacity =0.1;
- Light blue box;
- Darker blue box (thin);
- White box set at opacity =0.1.
All set to fly across the screen in <2 seconds. Each box has slightly different speed of movement for artistic effect.
I made several versions of the HTML file, changing the angle of the stripes, for variety.
The screenshot below shows how I did it in Shotcut - I put all the clips on V1 and made a short dissolve transition between each, then I put the transparent clips on V2 and V3, carefully positioning them to achieve the desired transition effect.
For Demo 2 I lengthened the transitions by extending the length of the transparent clips.
I’m very happy to share the HTML files I used - just ask.
