Gradient Wipe Transitions for Final Cut Pro: Pentagonals

by Bruce Rawles (author of Sacred Geometry Design Sourcebook)

If you use Final Cut Pro® (a registered trademark of Apple Inc.) to do video editing, these Geometric Video Patterns (images for gradient wipe transitions) can greatly enhance your production with visually appealing proportions based on the same principles used by Renaissance master artists; now you can use them with today’s ubiquitous art form – video! Here’s a sample video showing 3 sample transition patterns.

Here’s a free sample image from the Pentagonals collection.

Sacred Geometry Video Patterns are a great companion to Final Cut Pro®.

The images (over 30!) in the digital download, represented by the thumbnail images above, are full NTSC resolution (720 x 480 pixels, without the website label, of course.) Simply drag a pattern into the “Gradient Wipe Transition” window in Final Cut Pro to create the desired transition. Here’s more info about how to use them. To get a feel for how they might look with your video, please check out the sample video above; the static images don’t completely convey the dynamics of the transition like live video can.

(Note: all files are zipped to minimize download time; you can unzip the files with Stuffit Expander or (GUITar), both available free online.

By the way, the reason these images are all gray-scale (no color) is that the wipe transition uses only the luminance (brightness) information in the image and not the chrominance (color) information. Here’s an example of an image from this pattern set that was made with color gradients instead of grayscale:
